Baseball hires former Hawkeye pitcher Furlong to new position


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa baseball team named Brian Furlong its director of operations, a new position in the program. As director of operations, Furlong will coordinate the team’s travel, assist with recruiting, and direct the Iowa Baseball Academy.

Furlong graduated from Iowa in 2005 after two years as Hawkeye, and he played for current Iowa head coach Jack Dahm while at Creighton in 2003. Furlong also played at Iowa State in 2001, and Triton College — a junior college in Illinois. The former pitcher is also an Iowa City native and former all-state selection at Iowa City High.

After college, Furlong has operated baseball academies, most recently as the director of the Iowa Baseball Academy.

“He will have a big input into our program,” Dahm said in a release. “He has tremendous connections throughout the state with the work he’s done in the baseball community.”
