"I am excited for Jake to remain a member of our staff," said Hoerner. "He has developed a great rapport with our staff and our players and has helped Cougar softball continue to improve every year. Jake is one of the top up-and-coming young assistants and we are fortunate to keep him at the College of Charleston."
Jury will continue to help the players improve upon their batting and base running as he has done throughout his interaction with the team. On the defensive side, he will work primarily with the team's corps of outfielders. He will also assist heavily in administrative tasks and travel coordination as well as play an integral role in the staff's recruiting efforts.
"It is a great honor to get to continue working with Coach Hoerner and the softball program at CofC," said Jury. "Coach Hoerner and this team have taught me valuable lessons that transcend the sport of softball and I am excited for the opportunity to further my involvement with the team.
"This program continues to improve with each year and I can't wait to be a part of it becoming a perpetual contender for Southern Conference titles and beyond."
Jury graduated from the College in May with a degree in history. He has been involved with the program since his first days on campus and his involvement with the team has increased with each year. Over the past two seasons, Jury has assisted the team in back-to-back SoCon finals appearances with over 35 wins in each season.
