NEC elevates Doyle to head coach

Former Salem High School pitcher Terry Doyle has been promoted to New England College’s head baseball coach following the resignation of Chris Shank.

Doyle, who was an assistant on Shank’s staff last season, played professionally in Japan, Mexico, and Venezuela. Doyle pitched professionally in the farm systems for the Chicago White Sox, Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles, and Arizona Diamondbacks. He reached Triple-A with the Baltimore Orioles Triple-A International League team, the Norfolk Tides.

Doyle was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2007 MLB Draft, but ultimately decided to return to Boston College for his senior year. Doyle competed in the Cape Cod Baseball League for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox. He was selected by the Chicago White Sox in the 2008 MLB Draft.

Doyle graduated from Boston College.

NEC will open the season with a doubleheader against Framingham State University on Feb. 24. The Pilgrims will travel to the Ripken Experience in Myrtle Beach, S.C. for eight games before returning to the New England region.
