Taylor Hasty is heading into his sixth season as the head coach of the Bryan College baseball program.  He took the helm in June of 2008, making him the third person to hold the post since baseball was reinstated at Bryan in the fall of 2002.

Following a difficult first season that saw the 2009 Lions win just 6 games, Hasty has brought the program to new heights with a total of 103 wins over the past 3 seasons.  The 2011 team was the first team in Bryan history to finish above .500, setting the program record for wins (31) which was promptly broke when the 2012 team finished the season with a total of 41 wins.  In 2013, the Lions were once again over the .500 mark at 31-26.  The Lions have also seen significant growth in Appalachian Athletic Conference play as the 2012 squad finished second in league play with a record of 17-7.  Hasty’s teams have compiled 46 AAC wins during his time as head coach, more than the previous 7 seasons combined, including a record of 7 AAC tournament wins.  In 2012, Hasty received the Coach of the Year award from his colleagues in the Appalachian Athletic Conference.  

Hasty had this to say about his award: “Receiving the Coach of the Year award was a great honor, not only for me but for our coaching staff and our players.  Awards like that are a recognition of our program more than they are the work of one person!”

During his tenure, Hasty has produced two NAIA All-Americans, one NCCAA All-American, 11 First Team All-Conference selections, 17 Second Team All-Conference members, 4 players have been named to the AAC Gold Glove Team.  Hasty has also coached back to back AAC Freshmen of the Year and had a pitcher named NAIA Pitcher of the Week.  He has had one player sign a Major League Baseball contract and 5 others play professionally.

Under Hasty, the baseball program has placed an emphasis on academics as he has helped 30 players graduate with bachelor degrees.  In addition 29 players have been named to the AAC Academic team and he has coached 9 NAIA Academic All-Americans.

Prior to becoming the head coach at Bryan, Hasty spent two years as an assistant to then head coach, Joel Johnson, at Bryan.  He also spent time in the admissions department, traveling and promoting Bryan as an institution to prospective students throughout the southeastern United States.

A 2006 graduate from Bryan College, Hasty helped restart the baseball program at Bryan as a freshman in 2002 after a 16-year hiatus.  Despite playing third base and left field for the Lions, Hasty was primarily a pitcher, setting the career record for innings pitched (332).  He served as a team captain for 3 years and in his senior season earned the Bryan College Athletic Department’s highest honor, the Lion of Valor award, given annually to the outstanding Christian athlete who excelled both on and off the field.

A native of Charlotte, N.C., Hasty graduated from Charlotte Latin School, where he helped win the 2000 state title in baseball.  Graduating with his bachelor’s degree in history in 2006, Hasty went on to receive his master’s degree from the United States Sports Academy in 2010.

Hasty is married to the former Julie Thompson of Chattanooga, Tenn.  The couple and their two sons, Maddux (4) and Jaxson (1), reside in Dayton, Tenn.
