FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Former UConn baseball player Ted Hurvul (2008-’12) has been hired as the pitching coach for the University of Fairfield baseball program, as announced by the school on Monday.
Hurvul moves into his new position after serving as the pitching coach at Washington College over the past three seasons, helping the Shoreman to a 3.35 ERA in the 2015 campaign. Before his stop in Chestertown, Md., Hurvul picked up coaching experience with the Bourne Braves of the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League.
The Monroe, Conn. native finished his five-year career at UConn with an unblemished 4-0 record and was a two-time Big East All-Academic team member. He made a career-high 13 appearances for the squad in 2010, earning three wins in 21.2 innings of relief. He was also a member of the Connecticut team that reached the Super Regionals in 2011 and won the Big East regular season crown.
Hurvul appeared out of the bullpen in six games as a freshman in 2008, posting a 4.35 ERA with seven strikeouts in 10.1 innings of work. In addition to his experience at UConn, Hurvul earned playing time in the Valley League and New England Collegiate Baseball League during the summer months.
The former Husky hurler joins a Fairfield team that won 17 games a season ago, including nine MAAC contests. UConn and Fairfield have met on the diamond 73 times in history, including a 7-0 Husky win in 2015.
