A three-time All-Southern Conference selection and the 2003 SoCon Baseball Player of the Year, veteran assistant coach Alan Beck returned to Catamount Country as the baseball program’s 11th head coach announced on June 10, 2022 by WCU Director of Athletics Alex Gary.
“Alan Beck is a name that resonates within the history and storied tradition of Catamount baseball. It’s with great pleasure today to name him our next head baseball coach at Western Carolina,” said Gary. “As a former teammate, I remember Alan’s leadership. He led by example and his work ethic was unmatched. He was committed to the game and his confidence was infectious – our teams took on the attitude of our leaders. He brings that same approach to coaching and that’s what we want for Catamount baseball. We are very excited to welcome Alan, his wife Kim, and sons Easton and Eli back home to Cullowhee and Western Carolina University.”
He added, “The respect Western Carolina baseball carries is significant and was evidenced by the level of interest we received from qualified coaches across the nation. With all the interest we received, I felt strongly that this is a position that needed to stay in the Catamount Family. I feel 100-percent confident in where we landed with Alan Beck.”
Beck returns to Cullowhee after spending the last seven seasons at Georgia Southern University coaching alongside fellow WCU alum Rodney Hennon, who had recruited Beck to play at WCU while the Catamount skipper. As the associate head coach, Beck was primarily responsible for the Eagles’ hitting in Statesboro. He was a part of the 41-win 2022 Eagle squad that was one of 16 teams nationally to host an NCAA Regional – a first for Georgia Southern which returned to the postseason for the first time since 2014 when it was a member of the Southern Conference.
“I’m honored to be the next head baseball coach at Western Carolina University,” said Beck. “Cullowhee is a very special place and I cherish my time as a player and an assistant coach. My family – Kim, my boys, and I – can’t wait to lead this program.”
