BUCKHANNON — West Virginia Wesleyan College Athletic Director Randy Tenney announced the hiring of Lee Bradley as the new head baseball coach on Monday (Jan. 17). Bradley, a WVWC alumnus and former baseball standout, returns to Buckhannon to take over the baseball program.
“We are thrilled to have Lee back leading our baseball program,” Tenney said. “Lee brings a wealth of experience to our program and has a proven track record of developing student-athletes.”
“I’d like to thank Coach Tenney and the entire committee during the whole hiring process,” Bradley remarked. “I am extremely humbled with the opportunity afforded me to be the next baseball coach at my alma mater. I think the foundation to build a competitive program in the Mountain East is here and I am excited about the future.”
Bradley arrives in Buckhannon after a two-year stint as the Assistant Athletic Director for NCAA Compliance at Alderson Broaddus University.
Before Alderson Broaddus, Bradley spent 11 seasons at the University of Charleston, where he served as a coach on the baseball staff. In October of 2011, Bradley was elevated to head baseball coach at UC after serving as the associate head coach for seven years.
In 2012 Bradley led the Golden Eagles to 28 wins, good for the second-most in program history at the time. The 2012 season also saw the Golden Eagles achieve 20+ wins for the third consecutive season, a feat that had never been accomplished before.
Bradley played for the Bobcats from 1993-1997, where he was a first baseman and catcher. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in sports medicine/athletic training.
Bradley will take over for Tenney, who resigned as head coach on Dec. 31, 2021. Tenney led the WVWC baseball program over the past 40 years.
