Missouri baseball head coach Tim Jamieson has been named the manager of the 2011 Collegiate National Team, as announced by USA Baseball.

He will be joined by pitching coach Rob Walton (Oral Roberts) and assistant coaches Dave Van Horn (Arkansas) and Scott Stricklin (Kent State).

Jamieson and Walton made their Team USA debuts together on the 2005 Collegiate National Team coaching staff, serving assistant coach and pitching coach, respectively, for manager Steve Smith of Baylor.

Jamieson will enter his 17th season as the head coach of the Missouri Tigers in 2011. He is the second-winningest coach in Mizzou baseball history and will begin the 2011 campaign with a career record of 544-382-2.

"This is a tremendous honor," Jamieson said. "It has always been one of my career goals to be the head coach for Team USA. I am excited for the opportunity and look forward working with a great coaching staff, along with all the people associated with USA Baseball."

While with the 2005 Collegiate Team, Jamieson helped lead Team USA to a 16-4 record, which included games played in Japan and Taiwan.

The 2011 schedule is highlighted by five games against Japan, marking the 38th time the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team has met the Japan Collegiate All-Stars in an international friendship series. The complete 2011 schedule has yet to be announced.
