University of Alabama head baseball coach Brad Bohannon officially announced the addition of Jason Jackson to the Crimson Tide coaching staff on Tuesday morning. Jackson is the second addition to Bohannon’s Crimson Tide staff and comes to Tuscaloosa after spending 16 years as an assistant, including the past nine as the pitching coach at Florida Atlantic University.

Jackson has built a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the Southeast and is known for his ability to develop talent on the mound. Before his most recent stint in Boca Raton, he was an assistant at South Alabama (2007-08), Mercer University (2003-06), and North Florida Community College (2002). In all of those stops, Jackson served as a pitching coach, recruiting coordinator or both.

 During his nine seasons with the Owls, Jackson helped FAU develop into one of the top baseball programs in the NCAA South-Central region. Jackson joined the FAU staff in 2008 and worked his way to the title of Associate Head Coach by September of 2016. Throughout the nine-year span in Boca Raton, the FAU program captured four conference titles and appeared in four NCAA Regionals, including the 2013 NCAA Chapel Hill Regional, where they defeated top-seeded host North Carolina. On the hill, Jackson coached 13 pitchers that were selected in the Major League Baseball Draft.
