Dave Tollett

Head Coach

 

A four-time Atlantic Sun Coach of the Year, head coach Dave Tollett recently completed his 15th season at the helm of the five-time ASUN 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 made the transition into the Division I ranks by winning three straight ASUN regular season titles from 2008-10 and posting 112 wins in their first three years. En route to the conference championships, FGCU went 73-20 in the ASUN – the most conference wins by any team in the country over that span.

 

Tollett’s blue collar coaching style has helped quickly build FGCU into one of the rising programs in the country. Over his 16 seasons as head coach, Tollett has accumulated a record of 565-337-3 with at least 25 wins in all 16 seasons and five conference titles, including the 2017 ASUN Tournament Championship. The Eagles have won 65 of the 96 ASUN three-game series since joining the league in 2008, including all 10 in 2010.
