Jimmy Meuel joined the UC Davis baseball staff in 2013 as the program's first-ever director of operations. He previously served an administrative role as the director of baseball information at San Francisco in 2012.
Prior to his first Division I stint with the Dons, Meuel spent three years as a pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at Menlo College. Under his tutelage, the Oaks broke school records for earned run average, walks per nine innings and shutouts.
Meuel earned his first coaching position while still a teenager: he served as a student assistant at UC San Diego in 2005. That year, the Tritons won their first California Collegiate Athletic Association championship. Meuel then headed north to Willamette University in Oregon, where he switched roles from coaching to playing. He led the Bearcats in pitching appearances as a junior and senior and graduated from Willamette in 2008.
Besides his collegiate experience, Meuel coached at the Headfirst Baseball Academy from 2006 to 2009. He was an assistant coach for the U-18 team for a year then became the U-16 head coach for three more summers.
