Associate Head Coach
Chris Hart

Chris Hart, a former infielder and catcher at Florida State, enters his 12th season with the NC State baseball program, his 10th as an on-field member of the coaching staff, and his ninth as a full-time coach. Hart spent the 2007 season as the Wolfpack’s volunteer assistant, and the two years prior as the program’s director of baseball operations. Hart coaches the hitters, infielders, and catchers.

Hart became the program’s lead recruiter in 2010 and produced immediate results on the trail, signing one of the best classes in the nation. Among the 13 heralded newcomers on NC State’s roster that fall were 2011 North Carolina High School Player of the Year Carlos Rodon, Pirates 20th round selection Trea Turner, and Brett Austin, a supplemental first rounder and the highest-drafted recruit to attend NC State in 31 years.

Rodon and Turner’s stock improved to No. 3 and No. 13, respectively. Logan Jernigan heard his name called in 2014. Jake Fincher and Logan Ratledge waited a year. In all, six draft picks from one class.

Hart knows the Atlantic Coast Conference well. He was a four-year letterman for head coach Mike Martin at Florida State from 1999-2003. A utilityman as a freshman, Hart became the starting designated hitter against lefthanded pitching, appearing in 50 games that first season. In all, Hart played 195 for the Seminoles, starting 116 with a .271 batting average, 23 doubles, two triples, seven home runs, and 72 RBIs.

Hart’s four Florida State teams (199, 2001-03) posted a combined record of 218-60 (.784), making an NCAA Super Regional all four years. Hart advanced to the College World Series as a player in 1999 and 2000, returning as a coach in 2013 with NC State. In his playing career, Hart played every position on the field except pitcher and center.

Pitching Coach
Clint Chrysler

Chrysler enters his first season as pitching coach, after joining the program in July.

He comes to NC State after eight seasons on Winthrop's staff as the Assistant Head Coach, Recruiting Coordinator, and Pitching Coach.

"Clint has built a strong reputation in this region and nationally amongst the baseball community as one of the best pitching coaches in the country," said Avent. "During his collegiate career at Stetson University and a nine-year professional career with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Seattle Mariners organizations, he was known for his competitive nature and his strong work ethic. He's done an excellent job of translating that into his coaching style.

"He's a hands-on teacher known best for his ability to develop players through relationship building and designing individualized plans to help them grow, adjust and reach their full potential as baseball players, and as men. Everyone I spoke to during this process had high praise on his approach and demeanor, and we're happy to have Clint and his fiancé Christy join our family here at NC State."

At Winthrop, Chrysler helped guide the Eagles to five consecutive winning seasons in conference play, including the 2017 season when Winthrop won its first outright regular season Big South title since 2003.

Chrysler brought in high-caliber recruiting classes during his tenure at Winthrop. The 2013 class was ranked No. 1 in the Big South Conference and No. 63 nationally. The 2014 class was rated No. 2 in the Big South and top-100 nationally, while the 2015 class was likewise ranked among the nation's top 100. Winthrop's 2017 recruiting class again led the Big South and was ranked in the top-100 nationally.

Chrysler was instrumental in developing the Eagles' pitching staff as five Winthrop pitchers have gone on to sign professional contracts during Chrysler's tenure. Winthrop's pitching staff has ranked among the top 50 nationally in strikeouts/base on ball ratio and fewest base on balls per nine innings from 2012-2016.

Chrysler coached three All-Big South Performers as well as numerous Big South Pitcher of the Week recipients.

Chrysler came to the Eagles after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at Stetson University. During his time with the Hatters, Chrysler was in charge of the outfielders, assisted with the hitters and pitchers, as well as serving as the first-base coach and baseball camp coordinator.

A native of Clear Lake, Texas, Chrysler played collegiately at Stetson University from 1995-97. He played three seasons as a two-way player for the Hatters and accumulated a 14-10 record on the mound with a 3.80 ERA. As a hitter, Chrysler had a career average of .309, including a career-high .344 average as a junior. He helped lead Stetson to two NCAA Tournament appearances in three seasons and currently holds the single-game pitching record by throwing 11 innings against Florida International on May 15, 1997.

Chrysler was named the 1996 Cape Cod League Reliever of the Year playing for the Wareham Gatemen. He also set the Cape Cod League save record that season and still holds the Gatemen team saves record. Chrysler was named to the Mid-Season All-Star Team during the season as well.

Chrysler left the Hatter baseball program after his junior season when he was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the 17th round of the 1997 Major League Draft. He spent nine years playing professional baseball with the Mariners (1997-99) and the Pittsburgh Pirates (2000-04) and reached as high as the AAA level playing for the Pirates (Nashville Sounds). During his professional career, Chrysler was named to two minor league All-Star teams.

He graduated from Boca Ciega High School in Gulfport, Fla., in 1994. As a player at Boca Ciega, Chrysler earned First Team All-Suncoast and All-State honors. He was drafted in the 47th round of the 1994 Major League Draft by the New York Yankees, but instead chose to attend Stetson.

Chrysler earned his bachelor's degree in Supervision and Management from Daytona State College in December of 2009.

Assistant Coach
Austin Morgan

Austin Morgan enters his second season as an assistant coach on head coach Elliott Avent’s staff after joining the program in October 2017.

Morgan comes to NC State following two seasons as an assistant coach at College of Charleston where he served as the program’s recruiting coordinator and bench coach, while assisting with hitting and infield.

A former catcher and student assistant coach at CofC, Morgan served in a versatile role for the Cougars. Morgan worked all over the field developing players with his main focus on the defensive side working with infielders and catchers as well as assisting with the outfielders.

Morgan spent the 2014-15 season as a volunteer assistant coach at Texas A&M, where he helped the Aggies to the Fort Worth Super Regional and a program best No. 1 national ranking. A&M compiled a 50-14 record and was ranked in the Top 10 in 12 NCAA statistical categories including nine on the offensive side and three on the mound.

Prior to A&M, Morgan spent two seasons as a volunteer assistant at East Carolina. During his two seasons at ECU, he worked directly with the catchers and assisted Ben Sanderson (NC State's Director of Player and Program Development) as a hitting instructor. He also mentored Pirates’ catcher Travis Watkins to Conference USA All-Freshman Team recognition.

Morgan joined the Pirates’ staff after spending two years as the head coach of the Diamond Devils Baseball Summer Program located in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.

His coaching career began as a student assistant coach for one season under former CofC and now Clemson Head Coach Monte Lee in 2009-10. The Cougars received an at-large bid and No. 2 NCAA Tournament seed advancing to the 2010 Myrtle Beach Regional championship game, before falling to No. 4 national seed Coastal Carolina. CofC ended the season ranked No. 27 in the final National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association poll.

As a member of Lee’s staff, Morgan worked with the Cougars’ catchers and assisted with hitting instruction. His 2010 squad led the Southern Conference in 10 offensive categories and ranked among the national leaders in home runs (5th/105), scoring (7th/9.1), runs (8th/576), doubles (9th/160), walks (14th/298), slugging percentage (15th/.539) and hits (21st/732).

A two-year CofC letterman, Morgan helped the Cougars to 74 wins and a pair of SoCon Tournament appearances from 2008-09. He appeared in 114 games (112 starts) over two seasons batting .297 (110-for-372) with eight home runs, 32 doubles and 82 RBIs.

As a senior, he helped Charleston to a 35-22 record making 56 starts behind the plate. Morgan batted .292 with five homers and 45 RBIs during the year. He also helped the Cougars to a 39-20 ledger batting .301 with 43 runs, 14 doubles, three home runs and 37 RBIs in 2008, his junior year.

A former two-year standout under Head Coach Brian Roper at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, Morgan earned ABCA Gold Glove honors in 2007. He helped the Buccaneers to a 36-21 mark as a freshman and 37-19 record as a sophomore.

Originally from Houston, Texas, Morgan was a standout at Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, Texas, where he earned all-district honors and team MVP recognition as a senior. He also garnered all-state honors as Cinco Ranch’s quarterback in 2005.

A 2010 graduate of The College of Charleston with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, Morgan is married to the former Allisyn Miller.
