Gautreau is in his second season in Starkville, helping guide the Bulldogs to two-straight College World Series appearances. He has also aided in landing nationally ranked recruiting classes both years.

"Jake has done a great job working with our hitters and infielders, along with serving as our recruiting coordinator," MSU coach Chris Lemonis said in a news release. "He was instrumental in transitioning from one coaching staff to another, helping both teams reach the College World Series."

Under Gautreau's guidance, MSU batters notched historic numbers during the 2019 season. The Bulldogs led the NCAA in doubles (166), finished second in hits (755) and ranked fifth in team batting average (.315).

On the recruiting front, MSU has recorded back-to-back top-25 classes despite head coaching changes both years.
