Corvallis, Ore. -- As fall ball starts up in Corvallis, Oregon State baseball adds a familiar face to their coaching staff heading into the 2019 season. Former Beaver letterman Ryan Gipson will be joining the team as a volunteer assistant coach, OSU interim coach Pat Bailey announced Wednesday.

Gipson spent four years at Linn-Benton Community College, where he served as the head coach of the Roadrunners program. Under his watch, the program posted a 42-4 overall record and went a stunning 29-1 in conference play. In his four seasons with LBCC, Gipson's team went 119-58 and 72-16 in his last two seasons.

In 2005 and 2006, Gipson was a member of two Oregon State College World Series teams, including the national title squad in '06. He started in 66 games in his career, played in 79 and had a .270 batting average with a home run, 36 runs batted in, and 10 doubles. He led the then-Pac-10 with a .500 on-base percentage in 2005.  Before coming to Corvallis, he played two seasons at Shasta Community College. 

After graduating in 2006 from OSU with a bachelors of science in sociology, he served as an undergraduate coach for the Beavers from 2011 to 2012. He then spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Dixie State in Utah. 

Oregon State will be entering 2019 without head coach Pat Casey, who stepped down from the program over the summer.
