Duncan served as the pitching and catching coach during his two seasons (2005 and 2006) at Georgia Tech. During the 2005 and 2006 seasons, he helped guide the Yellow Jackets to an 89-36 record, including two NCAA Regionals appearances. Georgia Tech won the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season and tournament championships in 2005. In 2005, the Yellow Jackets finished 16th in the nation with a 1.49 ERA. Duncan was also responsible for coaching ACC Pitcher of the Year Jessica Sallinger.
In addition to being responsible for the development of Georgia Tech's pitchers and catchers, Duncan was heavily involved in recruiting, game preparation, coordinating team travel, and scouting of opponents. He was also responsible for camp administration as well as starting Georgia Tech's softball booster club.
This is the second time Duncan will be a part of the same coaching staff as Karen Johns. In 2000 at the University of Alabama, Duncan was a student manager assisting with the daily operations of the Alabama softball program while Johns was the Crimson Tides' top assistant.
Duncan graduated from Alabama in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in history and a minor in English.
The Abbeville, S.C., native also played men's fastpitch softball. In 2001, Duncan toured Asia with "The King and His Court" (a four-man softball team) and was the team's featured pitcher. He was a pitcher for the Spartanburg Stars from 1996-2004 and helped lead the team to three NSA World Series appearances.
"We are so happy to have Brandon join our UVA family," said Johns. "I've known Brandon for quite some time and coached with him before. His knowledge of and passion for the game of softball will be a big benefit to our team."
