Assistant Coach


Grant Achilles was named an assistant coach for the Georgetown baseball program in September 2011.

Achilles comes to Georgetown after spending the last two seasons as a volunteer assistant on the staff at Wake Forest.

Prior to his stint at Wake Forest, Achilles spent two years on the staff at Western Carolina. After serving as an assistant coach in 2008, he was promoted to assistant head coach before the start of the 2009 season. During his two seasons at WCU, Achilles helped the Catamounts to two winning seasons, including a 35-22 mark in 2009. Along with his work on the field, Achilles also coordinated and oversaw team travel.

Before his tenure at Western Carolina, Achilles spent a season with the Charlotte baseball program, working with the 49er catchers, assisting with the defense and hitters and also serving as the first base coach. Achilles worked with all-Atlantic 10 catcher Kris Rochelle, who was drafted in the 22nd round of the 2007 MLB Draft by the Detroit Tigers. Achilles helped the 49ers to one of their most successful seasons in program history, finishing with 49 wins and earning a national ranking that rose to as high as No. 19. Charlotte advanced to the NCAA Tournament, playing in the Columbia, S.C., regional.

Achilles has also coached in summer wooden bat leagues. He spent the summer of 2006 as an assistant coach with the Thunder Bay Border Cats of the Northwoods League, helping the team to a runner-up finish. In 2007, Achilles was the associate head coach of the Wilmington Sharks of the Coastal Plain League.

A four-year letterwinner at Wake Forest from 2002-06, Achilles played a variety of positions for the Demon Deacons, including time at first base, second base, right field and catcher. Achilles appeared in 56 games during his collegiate career, including 19 starting appearances.

A native of Lynchburg, Va., Achilles graduated from Wake Forest in 2006 with a degree in communication. His older brother, Chad, went to Wake Forest, while his brother, Todd, played at Wake Forest.
