Former Wofford Assistant Comes to Elis
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Josh Schulman has joined the Yale Baseball coaching staff for the 2018-19 season, head coach John Stuper announced.
Schulman will handle the responsibilities of baserunning and catching while assisting with the program's recruiting efforts.
Prior to Yale, Schulman coached at Wofford College where he served as the volunteer assistant during the last two seasons. In 2018, the Terriers went 36-23, eclipsed 35 wins for the second time in program history and finished second in the nation in stolen bases.
'It's a tremendous honor to join a program and an institution with as much storied history and tradition as Yale," said Schulman. "I'm very grateful that Coach Stuper gave me this opportunity, and I'm excited to work with him, Coach Frawley, and Coach Guarino in achieving the overall vision of elevating this program to its highest possible level.'
Before joining Wofford, Schulman worked as an assistant coach with the Pomona-Pitzer Baseball Program in 2015-16, serving as the pitching coach and then being elevated to recruiting coordinator following the 2016 season.
As a pitcher at the University of Rochester, Schulman earned honorable-mention All-Liberty League honors as a senior, and was named to the Capital One Academic All-District team.
During his senior year, he led the team in starts, innings pitched, complete games, shutouts and strikeouts, while he led starting pitchers in ERA and batting average against. He led the Liberty League in shutouts in 2015, breaking the school record.
Schulman also helped his Rochester squad to a school-record 17 straight wins in 2015. He was part of a program that reached the 25-win plateau as both a junior and senior, and qualified for the Liberty League Tournament Championship for the first time in school history.
In 2015, Schulman graduated from Rochester with degrees in Political Science and English. He earned his Masters in Sports Management from Texas A&M in 2017.
