Brooks DuBose

NEW ORLEANS – Brooks DuBose was announced as the latest hiring to the New Orleans Privateers baseball coaching staff on Monday. He will assume duties as the volunteer assistant, starting in the upcoming 2023 season.

DuBose comes to the Privateers from Lee University. While at Lee, he oversaw infield development and assisted with hitters. Last season, the Flames won the Gulf South Conference and earned a spot in the Div. II South Regional. There were also 45 double plays turned last season.

Dylan Standifer was an All-Region selection and Alan Carter signed with the Los Angeles Angels during DuBose’s time at Lee.

DuBose finished his playing career in 2021. At Covenant College, where DuBose finished his career, he was the team leader in RBI and a Second Team All-Conference selection. He was also an All-Academic selection as a senior.

In 2020, DuBose coached Knights Baseball, a travel organization based in Nashville, to a top-40 ranking nationally by Perfect Game. During DuBose’s time with the Knights, 25 players went on to receive scholarships at different levels.

DuBose’s first stint in coaching was with the Spearfish Sasquatch, a summer league team in South Dakota. In 2019, DuBose was the third base coach. That summer, Spearfish set a team record for stolen bases.

“I’m super excited to get started. I cant thank Coach Dean enough for the opportunity. It all came about super quick but I’ve heard nothing but good things about the program.”

“I’ve been in New Orleans a couple of times before and my family is from Southwest Louisiana. What stood out is how consistent this program is and how well they can hit every year. It’s a great place to get experience.”
