Both current and former Indians helped as instructors with former players Morgan Pittman, Brett Cammons, Zack McCurry, Cole Amtmann, Jarius Rhoads and Jon Banks among those assisting members of the 2014 Indians, head coach Franklin DeLoach and assistants Brandon Blair, Mark Bowles, Roc Coleman, Matt Wilson and Morris Milner.
