Monte Wesley Lee (born February 9, 1977) is an American college baseball coach. He is currently the head coach of the College of Charleston Cougars baseball team, a position he has held since prior to the start of the 2009 season. Under Lee, the Cougars have reached three NCAA Tournaments and one NCAA Super Regional.[1]

Playing career

Lee played four seasons of baseball (1996–1999) at College of Charleston. An outfielder, Lee was a career .333 hitter and had 22 home runs. He was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals following his senior year and played two seasons of minor league baseball, advancing as high as Single-A.[1][2][3]

Coaching career

Lee began his coaching career with a two-year stint (2001–2002) as an assistant at Spartanburg Methodist, a junior college located in his hometown of Spartanburg, South Carolina. During Lee's tenure, the program reached an NJCAA Division I World Series and set a single-season win record. Lee then spent six seasons (2003–2008) as an assistant at South Carolina. The Gamecocks qualified for the NCAA Tournament in each of Lee's six seasons and also appeared in two College World Series.[1][4]

College of Charleston

Lee was hired as the head coach at College of Charleston prior to the start of the 2009 season.[5] In Lee's second season, the Cougars broke the 40-win mark and appeared in their first NCAA Tournament in his tenure. At the Myrtle Beach Regional, the Cougars advanced to the regional final with wins over third-seeded NC State and first-seeded Coastal Carolina, but were eliminated with consecutive defeats by Coastal in the championship round. In 2012, the team shared the Southern Conference regular season title and advanced to another NCAA Tournament, where it went 1-2. In 2014, CofC's first season in the Colonial Athletic Association, the team advanced to the NCAA super regional round for the second time in its history. The Cougars won the Gainesville Regional with a 3-0 record, defeating host Florida and Long Beach State twice. In the Lubbock Super Regional, the Cougars were defeated by Texas Tech in consecutive 1-0 games.[6][7][8][9]

In Lee's six seasons at Charleston, 18 players have been selected in the Major League Baseball Draft. His highest selection, pitcher Heath Hembree, was taken in the 5th round by the San Francisco Giants in 2010 and reached the major leagues in 2013. A total of six Cougars were taken in the 2010 draft, the highest total of Lee's tenure.[10][11][12]
