Guest Speaker Information
During his tenure at Bryan, the college has experienced a period of significant growth, including the addition of graduate and online programs, expansion of undergraduate offerings, increased outreach to the community, new satellite campuses in Chattanooga and Knoxville, and growth in the Dayton campus physical facilities. Stephen and his wife Corinne have three grown children.
Coach Hasty now in his fifth season as the head coach of the Bryan College baseball program, has brought the program to new heights with a total of 93 wins over the past 3 seasons. The Lions have seen significant growth in Appalachian Athletic Conference play as the 2012 squad finished second in league play with a record of 17-7. Hasty's teams have compiled 36 AAC wins during his time as head coach, more than the previous 6 seasons combined, including a record of 5 AAC tournament wins. In 2012, Hasty's colleagues voted him the Coach of the Year in the Appalachian Athletic Conference. Prior to becoming the head coach at Bryan, Hasty spent two years as an assistant to then head coach, and traveling with the admissions department. Hasty helped restart the baseball program at Bryan as a freshman in 2002 after a 16-year hiatus. Hasty was primarily a pitcher, setting the career record for innings pitched (332). He served as a team captain for 3 years and in his senior season earned the Bryan College Athletic Department's highest honor, the Lion of Valor award, given annually to the outstanding Christian athlete who excelled both on and off the field. A native of Charlotte, N.C., Hasty graduated from Charlotte Latin School, where he helped win the 2000 state title in baseball. After graduating from Bryan (2006, BA History), Hasty received his master's degree from the United States Sports Academy in 2010. Hasty and his wife Julie Thompson have two sons, three-year-old Maddux and infant Jaxson.
