Seely named coach of perennially strong Jerome

As an assistant baseball coach at Dublin Jerome since 2018, Colin Seely knew he wanted an opportunity to serve as a head coach. 

While he would still like to lead a baseball program, Seely has been named Jerome boys golf coach, pending school board approval. Joe Flynn stepped down after leading the Celtics to the Division I state tournament in each of his two seasons.

“The end goal for me is to be a head baseball coach, but I’ve always wanted to be a head coach, so this is going to be a great learning experience for me to be able to lean on other coaches in the building and continue to grow as a coach,” said Seely, who will remain as an assistant baseball coach.

“Colin understands the academic expectations of our athletes and is able to devote the time needed for our team to excel,” athletics director Joe Bline said. “I have great faith in coach Seely.” 

A 2013 graduate of Jerome, Seely played baseball and football for the Celtics. He is a special education teacher in the school district.

“I play (golf) more recreationally, but some of my best friends were on the golf team while I was in high school,” he said. “I went to school at Jerome. I lived this dynasty that has been built over these last 15 to 20 years. I couldn’t be more excited to come back and hold that standard for this next generation.”
