Niesen Joins Georgetown Baseball Coaching Staff

Eric Niesen becomes GU’s pitching coach after spending last season at Wake Forest

Eric Niesen joined the Georgetown baseball coaching staff in July, 2017 and will serve as GU's pitching coach.

Niesen comes to the Hilltop after spending the 2017 season as a student assistant coach for the Demon Deacons while he completed his degree in communications. He assisted the Wake Forest pitching staff and served as the bullpen coach for the Demon Deacons and Georgetown alum Tom Walter.

Prior to returning to his alma mater, Niesen had a 10-year professional career, reaching as high as Triple-A while playing in the Mets, Mariners and Red Sox organizations, as well as independent ball. He was a third-round draft pick of the New York Mets in 2007.

In the minor leagues from 2007-13, Niesen pitched in more than 150 games and won 21 games along with a 4.51 ERA. He spent parts of five seasons in the Atlantic League, and had a 0.93 ERA with the Bridgeport Bluefish in 2015, his last full season.

The New Boston, Michigan native stepped away during the 2016 season to be with his wife, Tina, as the couple had their first son, Gideon.

A three-year letterwinner at Wake Forest, Niesen led the pitching staff his junior campaign with a 6-5 record and 3.00 ERA in 84.0 innings, totaling 83 strikeouts. He finished his career with a 14-9 record from 2005-07.
