Ohio State baseball head coach Greg Beals announced the hiring of Matt Angle as an assistant coach July 11, 2018. Angle, a Buckeye standout from 2005-07, has been a part of the baseball support staff as the volunteer video coordinator the last five seasons. He is headed into his third season as an assistant under head coach Greg Beals.
“I am really excited for Matt to join our coaching staff,” Beals said. “His passion for this university, knowledge for the game and ability to communicate and relate to the players will be a great asset. Matt’s skills compliment me and this coaching staff.”
In a shortened 2020 season, Angle helped junior catcher Dillon Dingler, named a Collegiate Baseball Third Team All-American, to become selected with the opening pick of the second round of the 2020 Major League Baseball Draft by the Detroit Tigers.
In his first season as a Buckeye assistant, Angle led a young OSU squad to a Big Ten Tournament title and NCAA Regional appearance in 2019.
As volunteer video coordinator, Angle helped the Buckeyes to the 2016 Big Ten Tournament title and NCAA Regional appearances in 2016 and 2018.
“It is an honor and privilege to become an assistant coach at The Ohio State University. This is home and I am excited to have the opportunity to develop student-athletes that represent Buckeye Nation. I would like to thank my family, especially my wife Jaclyn and Coach Beals for this opportunity.”
Angle, a native of Columbus, Ohio, was a two-time All-Big Ten selection and 2007 team captain. In just three seasons with the Scarlet and Gray, he is listed in multiple career batting categories in the Ohio State record book, including third in stolen bases (60), 14th in batting average (.351), 16th in runs scored (151) and 24th in hits (209). After earning All-Big Ten Tournament honors as a freshman in 2005, Angle led the Buckeyes to the Big Ten Tournament title as a junior in 2007 with a team-high .366 average. He helped the Scarlet and Gray to NCAA Regional appearances in both 2005 and 2007.
Angle was drafted in the seventh round by the Baltimore Orioles and played nine professional seasons with the Orioles, Dodgers, Marlins and Athletics. Angle resides in Upper Arlington with his wife Jaclyn, and baby daughter, Payton.
