Montressa Kirby - Head Baseball Coach
Montressa Kirby, a former Jacksonville State All-American, began his first year as baseball coach in April 2008 and as a football coach in 2006.
Kirby spent his first two years coaching wide receivers before making the move to quarterbacks prior to the 2004 season at Jacksonville State.
Under Kirby's guidance, the JSU's quarterbacks tossed just five interceptions all of 2004, the second lowest total in all of NCAA I-AA football. Junior quarterback Maurice Mullins led the OVC in passing efficiency and was fifth in total offense.

Kirby signed with the Hamilton Tigercats after his stellar collegiate career and was a member of the 1999 Grey Cup Championship team.
He was the starting quarterback for the Birmingham Steeldogs of the af2 indoor league and posted a 12-6 record and led the team into the Conference Championship game of the af2 playoffs in 2002. Kirby passed for more than 3,800 yards and 82 touchdowns and helped the Steeldogs to their first ever post-season win.
