After a one-year stint with the San Diego Padres, former Auburn volunteer assistant coach Casey Myers is returning to the Tigers program in the same role.
In a report first filed by the Opelika-Auburn News' Dana Sulonen, head coach Clint Myers, who is also Casey's father, confirmed the move.
Casey Myers served as volunteer assistant for the Auburn team that reached the Women's College World Series in 2015, serving primarily as an offensive coach. He accepted a position with the Padres earlier this calendar year and was released from that role following the completion of the minor league season.
Casey Myers rejoins his father as well as brother Corey Myers at AU, reuniting the trio of kinfolk that took the country by storm when their respective hirings were announced in 2014. Casey is a former minor league hitting coach, as well as a former minor league player.
As Casey Myers returns to the volunteer assistant's role, Hunter Veach, who occupied the position during the 2016 season, will remain on the staff, but as a manager.
