Dave Tollett

 

Head Coach: Florida Gulf Coast University

A three-time Atlantic Sun Coach of the Year, head coach Dave Tollett enters his 10th season at the helm of the three-time A-Sun champion Florida Gulf Coast baseball program. He was named the program's first-ever head coach in August of 2001.

Under Tollett's guidance, the Eagles have made the transition into the Division I ranks by winning three straight A-Sun regular season titles and posting 112 wins in their first three years. En route to the conference championships, FGCU went 73-20 in the A-Sun - the most conference wins by any team in the country over that span.

Tollett's blue collar coaching styles has helped quickly build FGCU into one of the rising programs in the country. Over his eight seasons as head coach, Tollett has accumulated a record of 304-137-2 with at least 35 wins in all eight seasons and three conference titles. The Eagles have won 27 of the 31 A-Sun three-game series since joining the league in 2008, including all 10 in 2010.

Player development has also been prominent in the program's history, as 12 players have gone on to play professionally. In the summer of 2010, Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Year Chris Sale and Casey Coleman became the first Eagles in the Major League - separated by just two days. Sale's accent into the majors began when he was selected by the Chicago White Sox with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft. Coleman, a 15th round selection by the Cubs in 2008, became the first FGCU player in the MLB on August 2, when he was called up from Triple-A Iowa.

Rusty McKee

 

Assistant Coach: Florida Gulf Coast University

One of the rising assistant coaches in collegiate baseball, Rusty McKee is in his eighth season with the three-time defending Atlantic Sun champion Florida Gulf Coast program. A 13-year veteran of college coaching in the state of Florida, McKee has been responsible for coordinating the recruiting efforts as well as assisting head coach Dave Tollett with all aspects of the program.

During his time in Fort Myers, FGCU has compiled 230 wins, including a 73-20 mark in the A-Sun since joining Division I in 2008 - the most conference wins in the nation of the last three seasons. The Eagles have at least 36 games in each of his six seasons and surpassed the 40-win plateau twice.

McKee also handles the schedule of opponents, scouting and works with the hitters.

Over his six seasons working directly with FGCU's hitters, McKee has helped the Eagles finished with a team batting average over .300 each season, highlighted by a program Division I record .334 clip in 2010. McKee has seen a player hit .300 or better 38 times over his six years, including two that surpassed the .400 mark.

Forrest Martin

 

Assistant Coach: Florida Gulf Coast University

Forrest Martin enters his third year as an assistant coach with the FGCU baseball program, with a primary focus on the pitching staff.

Aiming for the fourth straight A-Sun Championship entering the 2011 season, Martin's pitching staff received preseason praise when senior righty Richie Erath was a named the Atlantic Sun Conference Preseason Pitcher of the Year. Additionally, senior closer Jack Wagoner was named to the initial watch list for the seventh annual National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Stopper of the Year Award.

In his first season with the staff in 2010, Martin directed the rotation to a 38-20 record and 25-5 conference mark on the way to the program's third consecutive Atlantic Sun Conference championship. Leading the conference with 484 strikeouts and holding opponents to a league-low .290 average, the Eagles' pitching staff was successful in taking all 10 A-Sun series on the campaign.

After their successful season on the mound, the Eagles' pitching staff garnered a number of postseason awards and accolades with the entire starting rotation earning a spot on the A-Sun All-Conference teams. First team honorees included a unanimous selection in southpaw Chris Sale, who ranked fourth in the nation with 146 strikeouts on his way to a perfect 11-0 record and a 2.01 ERA, in addition to right-hander Pete Woodworth, who posted a 9-2 record with 67 strikeouts. Although highly deserving of a first team bid, Richie Erath was named to the All-Conference second team after finishing second on the team with 76 strikeouts and holding a 7-4 overall record.
