Disher has served as the hitting coach for the Hoyas since the 2013 season. He came to the Hilltop after spending two years as an assistant at Wofford College, where he worked with the hitters and catchers.

Under Disher's tutelage, the Hoyas improved from a .255 team batting average his first season to a .261 average in 2014 and a .279 mark in 2015. Over his three seasons, GU totaled 306 extra base hits, including 123 in 2015. The Hoya offense ranked third in the BIG EAST in 2015 in batting average and second in the conference with 23 home runs. Four different Hoyas set career highs in home runs in 2015 and junior catcher Nick Collins was named Georgetown's first ever BIG EAST Player of the Year after batting .370 and leading the BIG EAST with 78 hits, seven home runs, 114 total bases and a .540 slugging percentage.

Disher was selected twice in the Major League Baseball Draft, first by the San Francisco Giants in the 45th round (2007) and then in the 15th round of the 2008 draft by the Houston Astros. During his first year of pro ball he was named the MVP of the New York-Penn League while with the Tri-City Valley Cats in Troy, N.Y. He finished playing professionally with the Houston Astros organization when he was forced to retire due to an injury.

Disher, a native of South Carolina, graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2007 with a degree in exercise science and a minor in coaching. During his four year career at USC, he was named All-Southeastern Conference during his junior and senior seasons (2006, 2007) and was a third team All-American selection by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association as a senior. While his teams made several postseason appearances, he was named to two NCAA All-Regional teams as well as two All-SEC tournament teams while being named the MVP of the 2007 Virginia Regional.

Disher served as head coach of the Forest City Owls in the Coastal Plains Collegiate Summer League this past summer. The Owls were the first half division champions and Disher was elected as the head coach of the all-star team.
