COLUMBUS, Ohio— Sean Allen and Andrew See, who Ohio State skipper Bill Mosiello added to his staff this summer, were both selected by D1Baseball as two of the top 30 assistant coaching hires this offseason. Allen was number four on the list and See came in at number 21.
Allen, who was the 2021 D1Baseball Assistant Coach of the Year, serves as the Buckeyes’ associate head coach, pitching coach and co-recruiting coordinator. Allen came to Columbus after six seasons as an assistant coach at Texas, where the Longhorns advanced to the College World Series in each of his final two seasons. In 2022, the Texas pitching staff ranked 26th in the country in ERA (4.22) and had the best ERA in the Big 12. Under Allen’s guidance in 2021, Texas’ pitching staff had the lowest ERA in the country (2.93). He coached the Big 12 Pitcher of the Year and a pair of Freshman All-Americans.
Prior to working with the Longhorn pitching staff, Allen served as the team’s hitting coach. He helped lead second baseman Kody Clemens to unanimous First Team All-America honors. Under Allen’s tutelage, Texas’ 2021 recruiting class ranked No. 9 by Perfect Game. Allen has also had coaching stops at Houston, FIU, Sam Houston State and Tulane and he has over 20 years of college coaching experience.
See is Ohio State’s recruiting coordinator and co-pitching coach. See spent the last seven seasons at Clemson as the Tigers’ pitching coach. Clemson’s 207 victories from 2016-21 were the 21st most in the nation and the Tigers made it to the NCAA Tournament each of his first four seasons (2016-19). In his time with the Tigers, See coached multiple All-Americans, All-ACC selections and MLB Draft picks. The 2020 Tigers had an ERA of 2.60, were 6-0 in one-run games and ended the season ranked as high as No. 19 in the nation. Clemson earned a share of the ACC regular season title and was outright ACC Atlantic Division champions in 2018. The Clemson pitching staff led the country in strikeout-to-walk ratio (3.93) in 2017 and, in 2016, the Tigers were ranked No. 15 in the final USA Today coaches’ poll, earned an ACC title and were a top-eight national seed.
See was named one of the top 11 assistant coaches in the country following the 2016 season and, prior to the 2017 season, D1Baseball named him as one of the top 30 recruiters. Prior to Clemson, See spent three seasons as the pitching coach at Duke and had stops at Ohio, App State and UNC Greensboro.
