Jake Boss Jr. was appointed the 16th head coach in Michigan State baseball history on July 1, 2008, and has quickly become one of the most successful coaches in the program’s 130-year history. In eight seasons, Boss has compiled a 264-181 (.593) record. His 264 wins are the most over a eight-year span in program history.
In just one season as head coach at Eastern Michigan in 2008, Boss made an immediate impact, guiding the Eagles to their second consecutive MAC West Division crown and first NCAA Regional appearance since 2003. For his efforts, Boss was selected the 2008 MAC Coach of the Year and made history by becoming just the second coach in league history to win the MAC Tournament and advance to the NCAA Tournament in his first season.
Prior to being named head coach at Eastern Michigan, he was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Michigan from 2004-07, as the Wolverines made NCAA Regional appearances all three seasons.
Boss was an assistant coach at Eastern Michigan for seven seasons (1997-2004) before coaching in Ann Arbor.

Head coach T.J. Bruce entered his first season at Nevada with a plan and with optimism, yet that same outlook wasn’t reflected in the preseason Mountain West Coaches Poll as Nevada was predicted to finish sixth. Bruce, arriving to Nevada as one of the top assistant coaches in the nation, then coached the Wolf Pack to a second place finish on the MW standings and the first MW tournament finals appearance in program history, proving himself as the right man to lead the Wolf Pack.
Bruce now enters his second season at Nevada after being hired on June 26, 2015. The former collegiate player arrived to Nevada after five seasons as an assistant coach at UCLA from 2011-15. Bruce led the Bruins to four postseason appearances in that span before leading Nevada to a deep run in the conference tournament in his first season as a head coach.
Nevada posted a 37-24 overall record in 2016 with a 20-10 mark in MW play, taking a title fight into the last week of the season before finishing tied for second. Nevada’s record in its final 24 games were a testament to Bruce’s work with the team and vast improvement, as the Pack posted a 20-4 record in that span. Bruce and the Pack capped the 2016 season by advancing to the MW tournament finals for the first time in program history. Nevada won a program-record four tournament games, which included a 25-6 rout of top-seeded Fresno State.
Bruce served as an assistant coach at UCLA from 2011-15 under Nevada alum John Savage.
Prior to his stint at UCLA, Bruce spent five seasons as an assistant coach at Long Beach State. Bruce was an assistant coach at Cerritos College in 2006, where he helped the Falcons to the Southern California College playoffs.

Rob Cooper enters his third season at the helm of the Nittany Lion baseball program in 2016. He was selected as the 14th head baseball coach in Penn State history on August 9, 2013 after a successful nine-year stint as the head coach at Wright State.
Not shy about stating his goal of building a Nittany Lion program that will compete in Omaha in June, Cooper has made tremendous progress in just two seasons in Happy Valley.
The Lions totaled 18 wins against a schedule ranking in the bottom third nationally during his inaugural campaign, but rose to the challenge under his leadership in 2015, matching the previous season’s 18 wins despite playing a schedule that ranked in the upper third in difficulty and involved 10 games against top-25 opponents.
Shortly after Cooper accepted the PSU head coaching position in 2014, the California native traveled to Taichung, Taiwan to serve as the head coach of USA Baseball's 18U National Team at the IBAF U18 World Cup. Cooper steered Team USA to an 8-1 record in World Cup play, including seven consecutive victories to win the gold medal.
Not long after the triumph in Taiwan, Cooper received one of the highest honors bestowed in the profession, as he was announced as the Rod Dedeaux USA Baseball Coach of the Year. With the honor, Cooper became just the 16th individual in the award's history to receive the accolade, joining the likes of Scott Brosius, Davey Johnson and Tommy Lasorda.
Cooper was also a member of the coaching staff for the 2007 and 2009 USA College National teams. The 2007 team earned a silver medal at the Pan Am Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Cooper methodically built Wright State into a perennial contender in the Horizon League with seven 30-win seasons, two Horizon League regular-season titles, three Horizon League Tournament crowns and six Horizon League Championship game appearances.

During his tenure as an assistant coach at Miami and Tulane, his teams advanced to NCAA Tournaments in 1994-95 (Miami) and 1998 (Tulane). In 1997, the Green Wave won the Conference USA regular-season crown.
Cooper left Tulane following the 1998 season and returned to Sacramento City College, where he starred in the early 1990's before lettering at Miami in 1993. In his first season at Sac City, Cooper helped guide SCC to the California Community College State Tournament championship. Sac City was then the runner-up in 2002.
Along with his college coaching experience, Cooper also was an associate scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1990-92 and has been selected to four coaching stints with USA Baseball in 2000, 2007, 2009 and 2013.

For the impressive work of his pitching staff in 2011, Cundari was named National Pitching Coach of the Year.
In his tenure, Cundari has coached 21 players who were either selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft or signed as a free agent.

At Seton Hall, Cundari ranks second in career wins (26), fifth in games started (36) and seventh in strikeouts (217) while playing just three seasons. He capped off his career in fine fashion, garnering BIG EAST Pitcher of the Year and Second Team All-America honors in 1985 after winning 12 games, striking out 98 and posting a 1.74 earned run average. Cundari's 1.22 ERA in BIG EAST games still stands as a conference record. Cundari was inducted into Seton Hall's Hall of Fame in February 2010.
Cundari returned to Seton Hall to earn his bachelor's of social work in 1989. He completed his master's degree in psychiatric social work from Rutgers University in 1990.
