Former Ole Miss pitcher Justin Cryer joined the Lions coaching staff for the 2010 season as a volunteer assistant coach.
Cryer, a two year letter winner with the Rebels, spent two seasons in Oxford
where he helped Coach Mike Bianco's teams to a pair of NCAA Regional appearances.
After posting a 2-4 record with a 1.35 ERA to go along with 2 saves in 2008, the Toronto Blue Jays made Cryer their 29th round selection in the 2008 MLB draft.
Cryer hails from Leesville, LA and is the older brother of current Lion Josh Cryer.
