Clemson, SC -

Clemson Head Baseball Coach Jack Leggett announced the addition of Toby Bicknell to the coaching staff on Monday. Bicknell (pronounced BIHK-nuhl) will work primarily with the infielders and hitters along with coordinating summer camps. He replaces Russell Triplett, who became an assistant coach at USC Upstate in January.

"We're certainly glad to have Toby on our staff," said Leggett. "We had him at camp the past few years and noticed him from the very beginning. His work ethic, loyalty, and knowledge of the game are outstanding. He's an extremely hard worker with a great future ahead of him in the coaching field."

Bicknell lettered one season as a third-baseman at Wingate in 2002. After spending two seasons (2003,04) as an assistant coach at Myers Park High School in Charlotte, NC, he served as an assistant coach at UNC Pembroke from 2005-06. The Brave program had its first back-to-back 30-win seasons during his two seasons at the Division II school.

In his nine years as a coach, Bicknell has coached a total of 24 players who have gone on to play college baseball, including six ACC players and seven Southern Conference players.

Bicknell, 28, earned his bachelor's degree in physical education at Wingate in 2002. He later earned a master's degree in sports administration at UNC Pembroke in 2006. A Charlotte, NC native, Bicknell was born November 15, 1978 in Houston, TX.
