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.

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.

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.
