Kevin McMullan just finished 14th season at Virginia and 10th season as associate head coach. He is Virginia's recruiting coordinator and hitting coach and works defensively with the Cavaliers' infielders and catchers. McMullan is known as one of the top recruiters and developers of players in the country.
In a November 2012 poll of 70 Division I head coaches by Baseball America, McMullan was named the top assistant coach in college baseball. He was also the 2009 National Assistant Coach of the Year. McMullan has helped Virginia achieve 596 wins in his 13 seasons, an average of over 45 wins per season. Virginia is one of only five programs to reach each of the last 13 NCAA tournaments.
In the past decade, UVA owns both the most wins in the nation and the highest fielding percentage in the ACC since McMullan's arrival in 2004 (.974). Under his coaching, the Cavaliers also earned their first NCAA national championship. In his 22 years coaching college athletes, McMullan has had over 80 players sign with professional organizations. Thirty-eight of his Virginia position players have been selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, and nine of them have reached the big leagues.
Before working at Virginia, McMullan was a manager in the Atlanta Braves organization. There, he coordinated the catchers in spring training and extended spring training. Before that, McMullan was the acting head coach at East Carolina, an assistant coach at St. John's (1996-99) and a coach at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (1994-96). Aside from his successful coaching experiences, McMullan also thrived as an athlete himself. He was a member of both the New York Yankees organization (1990-92) and the Salt Lake City Trappers (1990 and 1992).
