Beazley enters his second season with the Hornets, working primarily with the Lynchburg pitchers and taking a key role in the recruiting process.
Lynchburg reached the Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament last season after a three-year hiatus from the league championships.
"Coach Beazley is one of the best pitching coaches in the country," Jones said, "but not only that; he provides so much leadership and vision to our program. It is only fitting to give him this title, because at this point, it is only a formality. He does so much for this program that no label will do it justice. He is a tremendous person of high character and grit, I am thankful everyday to get a chance to work with him."
In his first year tutoring the Hornets pitching staff, the team dropped nearly a point and a half off its team ERA.
"Travis has been a tremendous addition to our baseball staff," Lynchburg director of athletics Jon Waters said. "He is a uniquely talented coach who can help drive the tempo on a daily basis but also can help his student-athletes focus on the big picture. His leadership in all areas of the program has assisted Coach Jones in building a foundation for a future that we are all very excited about."
Beazley came from Virginia Military Institute to join Lynchburg's staff in the summer of 2017 after six seasons with the Keydets. He was associate head coach at VMI as well.
The former minor-league right-hander graduated from Randolph-Macon College in 2006, where he was a second-team All-American and South Region pitcher of the year. He pitched four seasons in the Boston Red Sox system, reaching as high as Double-A.
