Jerry Edwards enters his seventh season as UNCG's pitching coach in 2019.
Edwards' pitching staff saw four players taken in the 2018 MLB Draft, the most pitchers drafted in any one draft in the history of UNCG. The 2018 pitching staff produced a pair of All-Southern Conference performers, including the program's third SoCon Pitcher of the Year in Matt Frisbee. Led by Frisbee's 116 strikeouts, the 2018 pitching staff set a new school record, recording 529 punch outs during the year, besting the previous mark by 34. The staff recorded the program's lowest ERA (4.17) in 14 years, tying the mark set by the 2004 staff. The team also had three players record saves on the season, en route to besting last year's school record. Jack Maynard, Andrew Wantz and Easton Welch combined for the school record 22 saves.
