Adam Rosen enters his fourth season as Washington University's first-ever full-time assistant baseball coach. Rosen, who began his duties at WashU on August 5, 2015, also serves as an assistant sports performance coach.
The Bears won back-to-back University Athletic Association (UAA) titles and reached the NCAA Regionals in both of Rosen's first-two years with WashU. He was a member of the 2017 UAA Coaching Staff of the Year and the Bears won multiple games during the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history during the 2016 NCAA Tournament.
Several individuals were awarded for outstanding seasons under Rosen's tutelage. One of Rosen's top responsibilities is working with the WashU hitters and the Bears set a school record for runs scored in 2016 with 399.
Following the graduation of 10 seniors from the 2017 roster, the Bears fielded a much younger core in 2018 and finished with an overall record of 21-14. The Bears placed third in the UAA with a 10-6 record.
Rosen arrived on the Danforth Campus after spending three seasons as the top assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Marietta College. He also worked extensively with the infielders and hitters.
Rosen was apart of three NCAA Tournament appearances at Marietta, compiling an overall record of 91-48 (.655). The Pioneers posted a 29-18 record in 2015, won the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) tournament championship and competed in the NCAA Regional.
Prior to his time at Marietta, Rosen had assistant coaching stints at Centre College (2011-12), Capital University (2009-11) and Piedmont College (2007-09). He has also served as a camp instructor at college baseball camps at Clemson, Elon, Notre Dame, US Navy Academy, Vanderbilt and Virginia.
Rosen played collegiately at Maryville College (Tenn.), earning second-team All-American honors by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) as a utility player in 2007. He also earned first-team all-Region honors and was named the Great South Athletic Conference Player of the Year after setting six Maryville records as an infielder and pitcher.
Rosen graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business management from Maryville in 2007, and received a master’s degree in business administration from Piedmont College in 2009.
