Tony Stoecklin assumed the SIUE head coaching duties in July 2012. The 2015 season will be Tony's 16th as a member of the Cougar coaching staff, and his third as head coach.
Stoecklin previously served as the Associate Head Coach and has long been responsible for the pitching staff. He also has handled most of the recruiting duties for several seasons.
In 2014, Stoecklin led SIUE to its first ever-appearance in the Ohio Valley Conference championship, before being eliminated by eventual-champion Jacksonville State. Stoecklin's 2014 SIUE Cougars netted a five-game improvement in the win column, finishing 21-33 overall, but the Cougars excelled in conference action. SIUE finished tied for fourth in the Ohio Valley Conference standings at 16-14 making the season the Cougars' most successful season as a full time member of the Ohio Valley Conference. The 16 wins were the most in program history and the fourth-place finish also was their best since joining the conference.
Stoecklin produced three all-OVC performers in Ryan Daniels (First-Team) Devin Caldwell (Second Team) and Keaton Wright (All-Freshman Team).
2015 marks the fifth season as an assistant coach for Edwardsville native Danny Jackson after being named to the SIUE baseball staff in July of 2010.
Jackson primarily works with the Cougar hitters. Under Stoecklin, Jackson handles the coaching duties at third base. He is involved in all facets of the program including recruiting and travel arrangements.
In 2014, Jackson led the Cougar hitters to a .278 team batting average, good for sixth in the Ohio Valley Conference. Jackson saw the lineup's overall batting average jump 36 points from 2013's mark. The team also was fifth in the OVC with 104 doubles, an increase of 37 from 2013. In conference play, the improvement was even more dramatic. SIUE combined to hit .294 in 2014 and the team's 63 doubles were second-most in the league, and just one off Jacksonville's State's league-high 64.
Brandon McCall joined SIUE baseball as a graduate assistant coach in August 2013. McCall came to SIUE after having most recently been a coach with the Nashville Knights summer baseball program.
McCall coaches first base, work with the infielders for the Cougars, and assists Danny Jackson with the Cougar hitters. McCall guided the Cougars to success in the field in 2014. SIUE finished third in the OVC with a .974 fielding percentage in OVC games, just .06 points off the league lead. The Cougars turned 31 double plays, the third-most in the league.
The Franklin, Tenn., native played three seasons of NCAA Division I baseball at current Ohio Valley Conference program Belmont, though the Bruins were members of the Atlantic Sun during his time on the field. Primarily a third baseman, McCall also saw time at second base and shortstop. McCall finished his career with a .318 batting average, 34 doubles, 17 home runs, and 112 RBIs. He was honored as an All-Atlantic Sun second team selection following his senior season in which he hit .346 with eight home runs and 48 RBIs.
