Hearn arrives in Staunton after spending the last 11 years as an assistant baseball coach at Bridgewater College. While coaching the Eagles, Hearn played a role in the team's two Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) titles and assisted the program to a 34-win season - the most in team history. Hearn designed and organized all daily plans for hitters and outfielders and served as a recruiting coordinatior for seven years.
In addition, Hearn served as the assistant athletic director for NCAA compliance and the schools Title IX investigator. As an assistant AD for compliance, he worked with all 23 sports at Bridgewater. he conducted monthly rules education presentations for all administrators and staff, while distributing and collecting all monthly required forms and paperwork.

Born in Delmar, Delaware, Hearn graduated from Bridgewater in 2003 after a stellar baseball career that left him the Eagles’ all-time leader in hits, extra base hits, RBIs, doubles, and total bases. He then obtained a masters in sport administration from Liberty University.
The job of head coach at MBU, however, was one he couldn’t refuse. “It’s an exciting time for Mary Baldwin athletics,” he said. “I felt that enthusiasm the moment I stepped on campus. The first question to me was, ‘What do you need to succeed?’ That’s a rare statement for a coach to hear.”
Adding to Hearn’s excitement is the agreement made between the university and Staunton for John Moxie Stadium to serve as MBU’s home field. “This is a baseball town,” he said. “There is already a great fan base here for the Staunton Braves, and we want to tap into that.”
