After spending the 2013 season working with the Rebel baseball program as the Director of Operations, Stephen Head transitions into the back to the field in the role of volunteer assistant coach in the 2014 season.

Head joined the Rebel coaching staff in 2012 as a student volunteer after spending the previous six seasons playing professional baseball with the Cleveland Indians organization and the Colorado Rockies organization. He then moved into the role of Director of Operations for the 2013 season.

A three-year letterwinner with the Rebels, Head helped put Ole Miss Baseball on the map as he played for the Rebels from 2003-05 and became the first three-time All-American in program history before being drafted by the Cleveland Indians following the 2005 season.

Head joined the Rebels in 2003 out of Hillcrest Christian in Jackson, Miss., and immediately made his presence felt as he helped Ole Miss advance to three straight NCAA Regionals, including hosting the program's first NCAA Regional in 2004 and advancing to the program's first NCAA Super Regional appearance in 2005.

The left-handed pitcher and first baseman earned several accolades throughout his career in addition to his All-America selections. Head was named the 2003 Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year and the National Freshman of the Year before being selected to compete internationally with USA Baseball after his freshman season.

He followed that up with Player of the Year honors for the SEC in 2004. Head also claimed the Ferriss Award as the top collegiate baseball player in the state of Mississippi that same year.

The utility player was drafted in the Cleveland Indians in 2005, going in the second round with the 62nd overall pick. He played five years in the Indians organization before signing with the Colorado Rockies in 2011.

He is married to the former Ashley Hatfield of Anna, Ill.
