Travis McCall has been appointed as the head coach for the Coker College softball team in June of 2014.
McCall took over the program from legendary Coach David Hanna who retired after 23 years as the Cobras head coach.
McCall came to Coker after serving as the assistant coach at King University for the past three seasons, amassing more than 94 wins. Under his tutelage, 15 Tornado players earned all-conference honors, and 11 were named academic all-conference. Additionally, he helped guide the Tornado to a Conference Carolinas regular season title (2013), a Conference Carolinas Tournament title (2012) and two Conference Carolinas Tournament championship game appearances (2012, 2014).
McCall assisted King in becoming one of the top hitting and pitching teams in Conference Carolinas during his three years. In 2014 the Tornado ranked in the top five in 13 statistical categories, including being fourth in runs (169), third in hits (350), first in doubles (64), fourth in home runs (18), fourth in runs batted in (143) and fourth in total bases (472). On the defensive side of the ball the Tornado were first in strikeouts (296), second in ERA (2.42) and second in shutouts (8).
In addition to the 15 all-conference performers, McCall has coached two-time Conference Carolinas Pitcher of the Year and two-time Daktronics All-Southeast Region selection Hannah Light.
Prior to his arrival at King, McCall served as the assistant coach at Columbus State University from 2010-2011. He helped guide the Cougars to a record of 37-16, a 16-win improvement from their previous season. CSU finished third in the Peach Belt Conference and advanced to the conference tournament.
McCall was a four-year letter winner for the University of West Georgia baseball team and a member of the Gulf South Conference Academic Honor Roll. He received his Bachelor of Science in Sports Management in 2008 and received his Master of Business Administration in 2009, both from the University of West Georgia.
