Wednesday. Corbin will now have an associate head coach and
recruiting coordinator title, while O'Sullivan will be assistant head
coach and pitching coach.
Corbin is in his ninth year with the program, while
O'Sullivan is in his fourth season. "Both Tim and Kevin have had an
incredible impact on the success of our program," said Leggett, who
is also in his ninth year with the Clemson program. "Both are among
the most respected college baseball coaches in the nation.
"Tim Corbin's was named the top assistant coach in the nation
by the ABCA last year and that speaks volumes for his respect level
across the nation. His abilities on the diamond and in the area of
recruiting are second to none.
"Kevin has demonstrated that he is among the top pitching
coaches in the nation. We are one of just six schools to advance to
the NCAA Super Regional each of the last three years and the
performance of our pitching staff has had a lot to do with that
This is the second promotion for Corbin since he has been at
Clemson. He was named assistant head coach in 1998. All nine of his
recruiting classes at Clemson have been ranked in the top 25 in the
nation, including the 1999 class, which was ranked number-one.

seasons at Clemson.
O'Sullivan has been at Clemson since the 1999 season as the
Tigers pitching coach. The Tigers have ranked among the national
leaders in team ERA each of the last two seasons and the team had a
2.27 strikeout/walk ratio in 2001, fourth best in school history.
One of his protégés current senior Steve Reba, led the ACC in wins
last year with a 12-3 record.
