John Musachio just completed his ninth season overall and seventh as head baseball coach at Oakland University. He became the program's all-time winningest coach in 2014 and currently sits at 136 career victories. Musachio was named The Summit League Coach of the Year in 2012, becoming the first-ever OU coach to earn that distinction.
Musachio has led the Golden Grizzlies to back-to-back school record seasons in Summit League play, winning 30 games over those two seasons. OU captured the No. 2 seed at The Summit League Baseball Championship in 2013, earning postseason play in consecutive seasons for the first time in program history. OU also served as the host of the league tournament for the first time.
The Golden Grizzlies had their finest season inside The Summit League in 2012. OU finished 15-6 and a half-game behind 13-time champion Oral Roberts. Oakland won 21 of its final 29 games en route to setting a new school record with 15 league wins. The 25 wins was the second-most in the Division I era, behind only the 28 wins in 2000.
Jacke Healey joined the Oakland baseball staff as an assistant coach in the fall of 2013 and just finished his first full season with the Golden Grizzlies. Healey will be working primarily with the hitters and the infielders.
Healey spent one year at the University of Pitt where he was the infield coach and also worked with the offense. In 2013, Healey helped the Panthers win a school-record 42 games. The Pitt offense was one of the finest in the nation during the 2013 campaign as Pitt finished the year ranked seventh in scoring (7.5), fifth in runs (444), 18th in home runs per game (0.83) and home runs (49), 19th in slugging percentage (.448) and 14th in on-base percentage (.403).
Prior to Pitt, he was a standout at Youngstown State, which led to him being drafted by the Houston Astros in the 27th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft. In two seasons with the Tri-City ValleyCats, he hit eight home runs, three triples and 11 doubles, and helped guide the team to the 2011 league championship.
