Haynes enters will enter his third season with the `Jacks, working primarily with the infielders, following a two-year career at SFA.
In 2013, Haynes worked with shortstop Hunter Dozier, who became the first player in program history to be taken in the first round and the highest Southland Conference selection of any baseball player when he was selected eighth overall by the Kansas City Royals. Dozier capped off the 2013 campaign earning first-team All-America honors and being named the Southland Conference Player and Hitter of the year. In addition to the All-America honors, Dozier became the first Lumberjack in program history to be named a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award. He was also a national finalist for both the Brooks Wallace Award (nation's top shortstop), and semifinalist for the Dick Howser Award (top player).
Across two seasons as a player, Haynes started 105 games in 114 games played appearing at second base, third base and shortstop. The native of Sugar Land, Texas, finished his career with a .263 batting average.
Haynes made an immediate impact upon his transfer from Temple College prior to the 2010 season. The infielder hit .307, appearing in all 54 games on the season. Also in that season, Haynes helped SFA to a program-best 34 wins and then helped surpass that mark with 37 victories as a senior in 2011.
Before transferring to SFA, Haynes helped lead TC to a 44-16 record as a sophomore and just one win away from the JuCo World Series. In that season he hit .336, recording at least one hit in 31 of 44 games and finishing 8-for-8 in stolen base attempts.
Prior to TC, Haynes lettered three seasons at Austin High School.
