He has coached at three Division 1 baseball schools prior to taking over at O’Connell (Duke, William & Mary, and Wake Forest). Prior to beginning his coaching career, he was a standout at William & Mary and a 2005 MLB draft selection. With William & Mary in 2008, Padgett coached an offensive unit that ranked third in the NCAA with a .343 batting average. That group also stole 101 bases and hit 75 home runs while posting a 36-21 overall record.

Coach Padgett has mentored 42 players who have gone on to play professional baseball and one Major League player (Justin Grimm - Texas Rangers), including 13 top-10 round draft picks, and 1 first-round pick (Marcus Stroman, 2012, Toronto Blue Jays). Kyle was a four-year letter winner at William & Mary from 2002-05. He hit .311 as a senior with nine home runs, 15 doubles and a .408 on base percentage and was drafted in the 18th round of the 2005 MLB Draft by the Florida Marlins. Coach Padgett reached High-A with the Marlins in 2006 before beginning his collegiate coaching career in his first stint with William & Mary in 2008.
