Volunteer Assistant Coach
Dustin Coffman is in his first season as the volunteer assistant with the University of Cincinnati baseball team.
Over the last three years Coffman served as recruiting coordinator and hitting coach for junior college powerhouse Wabash Valley College in Mount Carmel, Illinois. During his three years the Warriors compiled a 139-46 overall record, winning two Great Rivers Athletic Conference Championships, while moving 39 players onto four years schools. Coffman's first recruiting class broke a Wabash Valley record resulting with twelve sophomores signing division one scholarships. In his final season with Wabash Valley College, the Warriors roster included players from Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, Missouri, Arizona, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
During the summers of 2011 and 2012 Coffman served as an assistant baseball coach for the Bourne Braves in the prestigious Cape Cod summer collegiate league where he worked with catchers and outfielders. In two summers with the Braves he mentored over fifty drafts picks including top-five round draft picks Colin Moran, Travis Jankowski, Pat Cantwell, Josh Elander, Ryan Eades, and Josh Conway.
Coffman began his coaching career at Indiana University under head coach Tracy Smith. During his time with the Hoosiers he worked with outfielders, hitters, and coached first base.
Coffman served one year as a student manager for the Hoosiers before being promoted to volunteer assistant, helping the players and coaching staff during practices and games in addition to performing additional duties off the field. He also spent two years as a volunteer with Josh Eidson in the IU Athletics strength and conditioning department prior to joining the Indiana baseball family.
Coffman graduated from Indiana University in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in exercise science.
