FAU Baseball …
2016 Conference USA Champions

Map


The Florida Atlantic Owls finished the regular season atop the Conference USA standings with a 21-8 conference record. The Owls amassed 39 wins in the 2016 campaign which earned them an at large bid to the Coral Gables Regional. The Owls have been to 3 regionals in the last 4 years.

John McCormack

 

Head Coach: Florida Atlantic University

John McCormack completed his seventh season as head baseball coach at Florida Atlantic in 2015 after serving 11 years as associate head coach and seven years as an assistant coach.

McCormack led the 2015 squad to yet another NCAA Regional appearance and national recognition as the Owls ranked as high as No. 12 in the polls. FAU's 42-19 mark became the best record under McCormack's direction as the Owls finished second in Conference USA and earned the No. 2 seed in the Gainesville regional. FAU saw six players drafted and a seventh sign a professional contract, continuing McCormack's outstanding track record of developing players who were undrafted out of high school.

In FAU's first season in Conference USA in 2014, McCormack recorded his 200th win at the helm on May 16, defeating No. 30 UAB 3-1 in Boca Raton. Two players from that squad were drafted and two more signed professional contracts. The Owls also produced two All-Conference USA players in Brendon Sanger and Stephen Kerr and Kerr earned Freshman All-American for his efforts.

Greg Mamula

 

Assistant Coach/Hitting: Florida Atlantic University

The 2016 season is Greg Mamula's first season at Florida Atlantic and sixteenth season overall as a college baseball coach. Mamula is the Owl's hitting coach, outfield coach and third-base coach.

Prior to FAU, Mamula was an assistant coach at the University of Cincinnati. At UC he coached the offense, infielders, assisted with the recruiting and was the third-base coach. In his first year as the Bearcats hitting coach, the team batting average increased from .251 to .285, slugging % from .372 to .404, on-base % from .336 to .370 and runs per game from 4.94 to 5.56 despite it being the first-season with the BBCOR bats and having graduated 5 senior hitters from the previous year. Mamula's recruiting efforts helped UC land its first-ever first-round draft pick with junior All-American outfielder Ian Happ being selected with the ninth overall pick by the Chicago Cubs in the 2015 MLB draft.

Before Cincinnati, Mamula was the head coach at NCAA Div. II West Chester University of Pennsylvania for three years. During his tenure at West Chester, he averaged 41 wins per season while compiling an overall coaching record of 124-45 (.734).

Assistant Coach

Marlin's assistant coach responsibilities at FAU will include being in charge of outfield defense, coaching first base during gameday, and seconding coach Greg Mamula with the hitters.

Marlin played four years of collegiate baseball at Penn State, starting a total of 162 career games in the Nittany Lions' outfield. He batted just under .300 for his career and was the team's top conference hitter as a senior, batting .338. Marlin earned his undergraduate degree in crime, law and justice.
