After graduating with a degree in business administration with an emphasis on marketing in 2009, Phillip Myers has joined the baseball coaching staff at his alma mater, serving as a volunteer assistant coach during the 2010 season. Myers responsibilities include overseeing the Spartan pitching staff as well as assisting in other day-to-day activities within the program.

Myers comes back to USC Upstate after serving as an assistant coach with the Haymarket Senators of the collegiate wood-bat Valley League this summer. While serving under former Upstate assistant coach Ryan Fecteau, Myers helped lead the Senators to a 29-23 record and league championship, as the Senators swept Covington, 3-0, in the league's championship series.

A two-year letterwinner for the Spartans, Myers, a 6-6 southpaw, fought through several injuries but still ended up pitching 97 innings in his career. A gritty, no-nonsense competitor, Myers started his senior season by setting a D-I era record, tossing 15 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball. He finished his senior year with two saves and a win, striking out a career-high 42 batters.

As a junior, Myers recovered from a tough start to post a 2-0 record and a 3.10 ERA over his final 29 innings. In A-Sun play, he was brilliant, posting a 1-0 record and a 2.35 ERA in 7 2/3 innings of relief work. He finished the year with a 2-1 record and 34 strikeouts in 49 innings.

Myers came to Upstate after playing two seasons at Seminole State College of Florida in Sanford, Fla., where he posted a 7-0 career record. As a sophomore, Myers posted a 5-0 record to go with a 1.76 ERA. He struck out 42. As a freshman, after recovering from Tommy John surgery, Myers posted a 2-0 record in limited use.

Myers attended Ballard High School in Kentucky, finishing his career by earning all-region honors as a senior. At the end of his senior year, he was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 44th round of the 2005 draft.

A native of Louisville, Ky., Myers resides in Spartanburg.
