Ted Hurvul begins his second season as the Fairfield pitching coach as the Stags try to build off their success in 2016. In his first season as a collegiate Division I pitching coach, Hurvul helped lead the Stags to the second-best ERA in the league which was the cornerstone of the Stags winning their first-ever MAAC Tournament Title and their first-ever appearance in a NCAA Regional.
All the numbers show the impact that Hurvul had in his first season as Fairfield's pitching coach. Hurvul helped rookie John Signore to one of the best rookie seasons in program history as he finished fourth in the conference with a 2.90 ERA and was the national leader for both strikeout-to-walk ratio and fewest walks per nine innings for several weeks during the season. Signore would finish near the top in both categories. Fans also saw the development in Gavin Wallace who tied the program record with eight victories during the 2015 season. Kyle Dube also benefited from his tutelage as he was named to the All-MAAC Second Team for the first time in his career.
During his first conference campaign, the Stags led the league in ERA (3.16) and fewest walks allowed (44) during MAAC only games.
Hurvul, a former pitcher from UCONN, has served as a pitching coach at a number of levels including Division III Washington College, and at the Cape Cod League, the premiere summer league in the country.
Hurvul spendt three seasons, leading the pitching staff of Washington College, helping the Shoremen to their lowest team ERA in over 20 years this past season. The staff recorded a 3.35 ERA, their lowest since entering the Centennial Conference in 1994. Additionally, rising senior Dan Jarrell was named the team’s MVP in 2015, the first time in over five seasons a pitcher received that distinction.
Hurvul spent his summers as the pitching coach in different summer leagues, most recently he served in the dugout of the Bourne Braves at the Cape Cod Summer League, the premiere summer league in the country. In 2014, Hurvul helped develop two Cape Cop League All-Stars as the Braves were named the President’s Cup Champions.
Before getting into coaching, Hurvul was a left-handed pitcher at UCONN during one their most successful year in recent school history. In 2011, the Huskies would win the Big East Regular Season Championship and advance to the Super Regional, finishing the season ranked 11th in the country. Hurvul would be named to the Big East All-Academic team during that season and in 2012.
