While playing at Wooster he set school records in stolen bases and triples and played for three North Coast Athletic Conference championship teams. He was a three-time member of the All-NCAC team, and was a member of the NCAC All-Tournament Team in 1991. Flynn was also named to the All-Mideast Region team in 1991 and 1989, and was a member of the NCAA Mideast Regional All-Tournament team in 1991.
"We're certainly pleased to bring a person with the experience that Tom has into our athletic program," said Mummert. "His knowledge of Division III baseball and his experience in the NCAC will be a great asset and a good addition to our staff already in place at Wabash."
Flynn spent one season as an assistant baseball coach at Wooster after graduating before taking a job as head coach at Christ Church Episcopal High School in Greenville, South Carolina in 1993. He was named South Carolina Coach of the Year and High School Sports Reporter's State Coach of the Year in 1997 as his team finished with a 20-2 record, earning a spot as one of the top four teams in the state baseball tournament. Flynn also earned the South Carolina Region II-A Coach of the Year Award in 1996 and 1997. He has been the baseball coach and assistant football coach at The University of the South since 1997, where his team has improved its record each of his three season at the helm.
Off the field, Flynn earned a master's degree in education with an emphasis in exercise science from Furman University in 1996.
"I'm excited about the opportunity to once again be a part of what I think is the best baseball conference in Division III," said Flynn. "Wabash College has great people, great students, and a wonderful new athletic facility. I'm looking forward to being a part of the Wabash community."
Flynn is a graduate of Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio. He and his wife, Carol, have a daughter, Kyra Elizabeth (1).
