Dec. 6, 2000

Clemson, SC – Clemson Baseball Head Coach Jack Leggett announced the addition of Shane Carley to the coaching staff. Carley will work with pitchers and catchers. He will join the team when practice begins on January 13.

Carley comes from Mission Junior College in San Jose, CA, where he was the pitching coach for four seasons. He helped Mission JC to a 124-48 record in the four seasons. Lefthander Rob Ellis, a newcomer on the Tigers’ 2001 squad, played for Carley at Mission JC the past two seasons. Prior to Carley’s stint at Mission, JC, he served as an assistant coach at Mercer Island High School in the state of Washington.

“We are extremely pleased to have Shane Carley join our staff as a volunteer coach,” states Leggett. “He has great experience as both a college player and as a coach. He has a strong interest in coaching at this level. Shane will bring us some recruiting contacts on the west coast as well. His work with the pitchers and catchers will assist (Pitching) Coach (Kevin) O’Sullivan in his responsibilities.”

The Walnut Creek, CA native and righthander was a two-year letterman at Laney (CA) Community College in 1990-91. After attending Fresno State in 1992, where he received a medical red-shirt, he lettered in 1993 at San Jose State. He then transferred to Oklahoma City in 1994, where he lettered once. He attended the same college (Oklahoma City) as outgoing Tiger coach Hank King, who accepted a position as a professional scout this past summer. Carley played two seasons of minor league baseball for Portsmouth (OH) in 1994-95.

Carley, 29, received a bachelor of science in criminal law at Oklahoma City in 1995.
