Zach Boone, formerly at Illinois, Florida and West Virginia, has joined the Ole Miss strength and conditioning staff and will work primarily with the Rebel Baseball program.
“We are so excited to have Coach Boone as part of our staff,” baseball head coach Mike Bianco said. “Everywhere he has been in his career they have raved about him. I know our players can’t wait to get to work with him.”
Boone, a native of Fairmont, West Virginia, joins the program after a three-year stint at Illinois, where he was a part of the Big 10 Championship team that went 50-10 en route to hosting an NCAA Super Regional. He also worked alongside two MLB Draft First Round selections and had 11 overall picks in his three seasons with the Illini.
His time in Champaign also included working with the softball program, where he helped lead the team to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances in 2016 and 2017.
Prior to Illinois, Boone was a member of the staff at Florida, where he assisted with the 2014 SEC Champion baseball team. His time in Gainesville also included two more championship runs with softball, as the Gators claimed the 2013 SEC Championship in 2013, and hoisted the national championship trophy in 2014.
Boone attended West Virginia University, where he earned his B.S. in Physical Education/Teacher Education (2011), and his M.S. in Athletic Coaching Education (2013). He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He also holds PES, CPR/AED and First Aid certifications.
Boone is joined in Oxford by his fiancée, Jess Goeller.
