A former player under Head Coach Billy Godwin, Hunter Allen joins the UNCG coaching staff as an Assistant Coach after getting hired in September of 2019. Prior to Greensboro, the East Carolina alum spent two years at his alma mater as a Volunteer Assistant. The Pirates hosted NCAA Regionals in back-to-back seasons with Allen in the dugout, while advancing to Super Regionals in 2019. The Shallotte, N.C. native's most recent stint at ECU was his second as a coach, spending his first year after graduation as a Student Assistant under current Pirate Head Coach Cliff Godwin.
Allen was a great player in his own right during his career in Greenville, acting as team captain in his senior year (2015) and receiving AAC Tournament Most Outstanding Player in that same season. He is a former Brooks Wallace Shortstop of the Year Candidate, and was a NJCAA All-American during his sophomore year at Brunswick Community College.
Allen also spent back-to-back years as an Assistant Coach and Recruiting Coordinator for Brunswick and Louisburg College, and earned his Bachelor of Science in Recreation Park Management during his years as a student-athlete in Greenville.
