CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Redhawks head baseball coach Andy Sawyers has announced that Curt Dixon has been added to the coaching staff as pitching coach and recruiting coordinator.

"I am very excited to welcome Curt, his wife Whitney, and their daughter Addie to the SEMO family," Sawyers began. "Curt has made a name for himself as a talented up and coming coach by doing an excellent job at Eastern Oklahoma. Not only is he known as an excellent teacher of pitching, he recruited many players to Eastern that have gone on to prestigious Division I universities including Southeast."

Sawyers added "As a good a baseball coach as Curt is, he is a better human being. He is first and foremost an individual with great character and our players are lucky to be able to be mentored by him."

"I am extremely honored to be a part of Southeast Missouri baseball," Dixon said. "The opportunity to work for Coach Sawyers will not just make me a better baseball coach, it will make me a better man. My family is excited to be a part of the SEMO and Cape Girardeau communities." 

Before coming to Southeast, Dixon was pitching coach at Eastern Oklahoma State where he helped the Mountaineers to two NJCAA Region 2 Championships (2012 and 2016).
