New Athletic Director At BPC
Monday, 14 July 2014
July 14-- ImageStarting this year, Coach Greg “Boo” Mullins will step up to the plate and take on the role of Athletic Director for Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, Ga. Mullins has served as Head Coach for the Barons Baseball team over the past six years, leading his players toward many victories.
Mullins is no stranger to success. His ability and affinity to succeed shaded his life as it led to Brewton-Parker College. He started his career as pitcher for the baseball team at St. Johns River Community College. When he left the school behind and moved to the University of North Florida, he remained covered by his talent
After his college years, Mullins signed as an undrafted free agent with the Milwaukee Brewers organization. While there, he began his climb. He played three years with Minor League Baseball, during which he made 55 career saves, before landing in the big leagues. In September of 1998, the St. Louis Cardinals played against Mullins in his first game in Major League Baseball. 
When Mullins retired his glove at the pitcher’s mound, he did not step beyond the shadow of his potential. In 2003, he resolved to share his pitching skills with other players and began coaching for the baseball team at the University of North Florida. When Mullins left UNF, he went on to work as an assistant with a program that geared its energy towards the development of young men, Georgia Star Baseball Academy. Mullins helped other players excel as they developed skills in leadership, scholarship, citizenship, and sportsmanship through the game of baseball. In 2005, Mullins accepted his first position as head coach at Nease High School in St. Augustine, Fla. When the year was up, he traveled on to his next coaching position at University Christian School in Jacksonville, Fla.

During each transition in his career, Mullins strived to create an environment where players on his teams would prosper. He lead the pitching staff at UNF towards second place in conference, pushed the team at Georgia Stars into two national championships (USSSA World Series, Triple Crown Summer National), helped thirteen seniors at Nease High School carry their career into college, and pulled the team at the University Christian School as high as second in the state.

When Mullins accepted the head coach position for the baseball team at Brewton-Parker College in 2008, there were no exceptions to his shadow of success. While Mullins has been at BPC, the school has witnessed the baseball team rise in stature. Over the past six years, he has helped twelve different students ascend into professional baseball, including Jon Kemmer who signed with the Houston Astros in 2013 and Evin Einhardt who was drafted by the Chicago White Sox this year. Last season, the Barons Baseball team ranked in the top 15 teams in the NAIA and even entered the NAIA tournament.

 Brewton-Parker’s baseball team has been the recipient to numerous awards, including NAIA’s College Coach of the Year given to Mullins in 2010. His influence did not stop there, for just this year, Mullins was named the “2014 SSAC Coach of the Year.”

When asked about his new position as Athletic Director, Mullins declared, “I’m excited to keep the program running in the same direction it’s been headed. My hope is that over the next few years, all the teams at Brewton-Parker College will experience tremendous growth and development, and I’m thrilled to have to opportunity to be a part of it all.”

No doubt he will play a major part in that development. After his history of success and his running record with Brewton-Parker, there can be no doubt in his ability to lead the whole Athletic Program into a future of triumph.
