Jamie Serber became an assistant coach for the North Carolina A&T baseball program under head coach Ben Hall in 2016. As the Aggies pitching coach, Serber is responsible for developing the A&T pitchers in terms of their respective command, movement and mechanics.
Before taking the pitching coach position at A&T, Serber spent two seasons as the pitching coach at Presbyterian College. Thanks to solid pitching, Presbyterian won 27 games in 2015, a school record for the Blue Hose as a Division I institution. In addition, the Blue Hose received solid pitching performances in wins over nationally-ranked Clemson, South Carolina, Central Florida and Indiana.
The prior season, pitcher Chandler Knox posted a career-best 3.25 ERA over 91 innings pitched and recorded a Division I school-record seven wins. Other Division I school records broken during Serber’s stint at Presbyterian included 380 team strikeouts and in back-to-back years the single-season appearance record was broken with 30 by Ethan Wortkoetter in 2014 and 35 by Russell Thompson in 2015.
Prior to his first full-time coaching job at Presbyterian, Serber served as a volunteer assistant at High Point University. Over a three-year period, he worked as a camp coordinator where the camp grew from 20 participants to 65 under his leadership. He also oversaw field maintenance, travel and on-campus recruiting, served as the first base coach and bullpen coach and assisted with pitchers.
During his time assisting pitching coach Craig Cozart, Serber got the opportunity to work with future MLB draft picks Jaime Schultz, Jacob Newberry, Cody Allen and Sean Townsley. As of 2015, Allen is the Cleveland Indians closer. Serber’s other coaching experience includes working with the Wilson Tobs, an amateur NCAA-sanctioned collegiate summer baseball team playing in the Coastal Plain League, in 2013. There he coached Jon Fitzsimmons who signed a free agent deal with the Kansas City Royals before the end of the summer. Tobs pitchers J.T. Brubaker (Akron University) and Matt Borens (Eastern Illinois) would eventually be drafted by major league teams.
Serber played four varsity seasons (2007-10) at HPU. For three years he served as the weekend starter for the Panthers, going 6-3 in 85 innings pitched as a senior. In the record books, he ranks ninth in career wins and innings pitched. Serber attended nearby North Forsyth high school where he played with future MLB standouts D.J. Mitchell and Dustin Ackley. During his career he was named Metro 4A Conference Player of the Year, went 10-0 as a junior and North Forsyth was nationally ranked after starting the season 30-0 his senior season.
