Jason Browar named assistant baseball coach at KCKCC


KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Jason Browar has been elevated to the position of assistant baseball coach at Kansas City Kansas Community.

Browar succeeds Damian Stambersky, who has taken a similar position at Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg.

“Jason has been a volunteer on our coaching staff for several years and will be a tremendous asset to our program and to our players,” said head coach Steve Burleson.

A native of Stillwell, Browar graduated in 2007 from Blue Valley High School where he was a two-year infield starter on the baseball team.

After graduation, he played one year at Neosho County Community College and then joined the KCKCC program as a student coach from 2009-11.

While enrolled at Emporia State University where he is finishing his degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with emphasis on leadership, Browar was an assistant coach from 2011-13.

He also was head coach of the Hammerheads team in the Myrtle Beach Summer League in 2013 before rejoining the KCKCC staff last fall.

Browar, 25, joins a staff of Burleson, assistants Matt Goldbeck and Bill Sharp and volunteer coach Alex Backhus.

“Jason will be in charge of statistics and communications that go outside the program and team with Bill Sharp in heading our recruiting,” said Burleson. “He’s pretty well rounded so we can put him in about any position.”
