Brett Conner joins Quinnipiac head coach Dan Gooley's coaching staff for his first season as an assistant coach in 2013. Conner will be the team's pitching coach while also assisting in the recruiting of future Quinnipiac baseball student-athletes.
Conner's first year on Gooley's staff comes after four seasons as the Trumbull (Conn.) Junior Legion head coach. Over the last two seasons, Conner coached the Jr. Trumbull team to a 33-7 record and four American Legion Tournament championships. In addition, Trumbull earned a berth in the state tournament each year and was a semi-finalist in 2011. He was also a two-time Zone 4 All-Star Game head coach. In 2013, Conner will serve as Trumbull's Senior Legion head coach. From 2010 to 2012, Conner was also Fairfield Warde High School's varsity pitching coach and junior varsity head coach.
Conner also had a one-year coaching tenure at Sacred Heart University for the 2008-09 season. That year, Conner helped guide the Pioneers to the NEC Championship game after that team saw a 17-game improvement. Conner's role involved specific instruction to the team's catchers and outfielders while also contributing to the pitchers' mechanics.
A former student-athlete, Conner competed for Monmouth (N.J.) University from 2003 through 2008. As a pitcher and designated hitter, Conner helped the Hawks to the 2007 NEC Tournament Championship and the NCAA Regional in Tempe, Ariz. as well as the 2008 NEC Regular Season Championship.
