Louisiana Tech head baseball coach Lane Burroughs announced on July 11, 2016 the addition of Travis Creel to his staff as the Bulldogs' assistant coach and director of camps.

Creel joins Louisiana Tech after spending two years at Jones County Junior College, helping guide the Bobcats to a 2016 NJCAA Division II National Championship. During his stint with the Bobcats, Creel served as the hitting coach, infield coach and recruiting coordinator.

"We are so thrilled that Travis will be joining us at Louisiana Tech," Burroughs said. "Travis is a winner. I recruited him out of high school and saw him continuously get better as a player through college. He played under two men that I consider mentors and family in Corky Palmer and Scott Berry. He has also worked alongside Dillon Sudduth, Chris Kirtland and obviously, Coach Ostrander, three men I have the utmost respect for."

Prior of joining the Bobcats, Creel began his coaching career serving as the hitting coach at Meridian Community College for a season. During that year, Creel also worked with the infield.

Originally from Ocean Springs, Mississippi, Creel was recruited by, then Southern Miss assistant, Burroughs. Over his five years with the Golden Eagles, Creel would help lead Southern Miss to three NCAA Tournament appearances and one appearance in the College World Series.

Creel holds the Southern Miss single-game record for hits in a game with six and in two separate seasons, led all of Conference USA in sacrifice bunts.

A two-time team captain, Creel was awarded the USM Colonel Fletcher Leadership Award.

"Travis has played in the College World Series and won a national championship as a coach," Burroughs said. "His knowledge and maturity far exceed his years. Our players are going to love working with Coach Creel on a daily basis. Please join me all Bulldog fans in welcoming Travis, his wife Alison and young son Brody to Ruston. I could not be more pleased with the staff we have assembled. Our better days are ahead."

Creel has earned both a Bachelor of Science (2012) and Master of Science in Sport Coaching Education (2015) from the University of Southern Mississippi.

Creel and his wife Alison have one son, Brody.
