Matt Roberson, a former baseball player at Lee University and Bryan College, has joined Tennessee Tech softball coach Bonnie Bynum’s staff as a volunteer assistant coach.
Roberson, 24, spent two seasons (2008-09) suiting up for Lee University, an NAIA school in Cleveland, Tenn. During his tenure, Roberson was part of back-to-back 50 win campaigns, and a trip to the NAIA World Series. His second season was cut short due to an injury, which led him to become an assistant with the Lee softball team, where he helped with the hitters and infielders.
In Roberson’s inaugural year with the Flames back in 2010, Lee went 57-5, earning a trip to the NAIA National Tournament.
After spending a year coaching softball, Roberson returned back to the baseball diamond, signing with Bryan College (NAIA) in the summer of 2010. During his stint with the Lions, Bryan set the all-time wins record with 41 back in 2012.
Roberson is currently finishing his degree in Exercise Health Science.
A native of Cartersville, Ga., Roberson graduated from Excel Christian Academy in 2007, lettering in baseball, basketball, golf, and cross country.
