Coppin State named Sherman Reed its new head coach on Tuesday. Reed, who was an assistant at Coppin in 2008 under Harvey Lee and in 2009 under Mike Scolinos, replaces Scolinos, who left the program in June to pursue other opportunities.
“This is like coming home for me,” Reed in a release. “I was raised in west Baltimore, I went to public schools here and I have family members that graduated from Coppin State.
“I recognize that there are only 301 Division I coaching jobs and am very honored that Mr. Ramsey believes than I am the right person to turn the program around.”
Reed played collegiately at Towson from 1979-83 under former Orioles and Rangers coach Billy Hunter. He then spent 10 seasons playing independent baseball prior to beginning his coaching career.
Reed has coached at various levels, including Western Tech and Catonsville High Schools, pony league and Cal Ripken collegiate baseball. From 2005-10, he was the director of the Yankee Rebels Baseball Club, which is the oldest amateur baseball club in Maryland. He was the coordinator of the Urban Baseball Camp for the Kansas City Royals in 2008-09.
Reed has plenty of work to do to turn Coppin State into a winner, but the program is making positive strides. The Eagles finished the 2010 season with a 14-33 overall record and a 7-11 mark in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference to qualify for the MEAC tournament for the first time since the 2006 season.
