Scott Jackson, an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the North Carolina baseball team, will become the next head coach at Liberty, UNC announced Sunday.
Jackson coached at North Carolina for eight seasons, and helped the Tar Heels reach the NCAA Tournament six times and the College World Series twice.
"I am thrilled for Scott to take this next step in his coaching career," Coach Mike Fox said in a statement. "He is a tireless worker who will do a fantastic job at Liberty. He has helped lift our program to another level since joining the staff in 2008, and we will miss him in Chapel Hill."
