University of Oklahoma baseball head coach Skip Johnson completed his coaching staff with the addition of Clay Van Hook and Clay Overcash on July 13, 2017. Overcash arrived in Norman after 18 years as a scout for the Chicago White Sox.

Overcash played collegiately at Middle Georgia Junior College and USC Upstate; then known as USC Spartanburg, where he earned All-District honors in 1990. He held assistant coaching positions at UNC Asheville and at various Oklahoma high schools, including Union in Tulsa for four years, prior to taking a position within the White Sox.
