Chris Hayes enters his first year as the Dolphin Head Coach after spending three years as the Dolphins assistant head coach during his second stint with the team that began in 2013. As assistant head coach, Hayes served as the third base coach, coordinated the Dolphin offense, worked with the hitters, baserunners and infielders. He also coordinated and managed team travel, equipment and the strength and conditioning program. Additionally, Hayes spent significant time assisting Dolphin recruiting coordinator, Chuck Jeroloman, with recruiting.

In 2013, Hayes returned to the River City after leading Seminole State to a 125-113-1 overall record in five seasons and represented the Mid-Florida Conference in the FCSAA state tournament in 2013.
Hayes first joined the Dolphins as an assistant coach in 2003, helping the team to back-to-back ASUN Conference championships and NCAA Regional appearances in 2006 and 2007. Prior to his time at JU, Hayes spent two years as an assistant coach at Wolfson High School in Jacksonville from 2002-03, where the team won the district championship in 2002 and 2003, while earning a No. 12 national ranking at the end of the 2003 season.
Before launching his coaching career, Hayes spent five seasons (1995-2000) with the Toronto Blue Jays organization after being drafted in the 28th round of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. Hayes was a four-year starter at Jacksonville from 1992-95, was drafted on two occasions by MLB organizations (1994, Seattle; 1995, Toronto) and twice earned All-Sun Belt Conference honors.
