Old Dominion[edit]

Second stint at South Carolina[edit]

After six seasons Meyers left Old Dominion for USC in 2010 where he now coaches pitchers again.

Jerry Meyers coached some of the best college pitchers at South Carolina, including 2000 Golden Spikes Award winner Kip Bouknight. One common theme for the successful Gamecock pitching staffs under his leadership was the presence of a dominating closer.

Two of these closers rank in the top 10 all-time in single season saves, with one more being in the top 15.
