The Alabama Crimson Tide baseball team has hired former SEC Player of the Year Hunter Morris as an assistant coach. Morris was the 2008 SEC Freshman of the year and the 2010 SEC Player of the Year at Auburn University. He spent his last three years working as an assistant coach at UT-Martin.

“I am very excited to bring Hunter on-board with us to assist me with our position players,” said Bohannon. “Hunter’s experience being the SEC Freshman of the Year and SEC Player of the Year along with his six years playing professional baseball will be a tremendous asset in connecting with our players who aspire to reach the same goals. His character and demeanor will fit in really well with our current staff."

Morris holds the Auburn single season record for home runs (23) and total bases (202). Morris was drafted after his Auburn career in the fourth round by the Milwaukee Brewers. He spent five years with the NL Central club before being traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He served as a student-assistant at Auburn before heading to Samford to serve in the same role in 2018. He helped three Samford Bulldogs become draft selections and his 2020 recruiting class produced two College Baseball News All-Americans in Christian Hall and Wil LaFollette.
