Erik Supplee Joins Coaching Staff as Pitching Coach

Erik Supplee

July 2, 2014

WASHINGTON – Georgetown Baseball Head Coach Pete Wilk has announced the addition of Erik Supplee to the coaching staff. Supplee, who spent the past two seasons at Wake Forest, will serve as the pitching coach for the Hoyas.

"I am excited to have Erik join the Georgetown baseball program,” Wilk said. “He has proven track record of success, both as a player and a coach. I truly believe he is one of the finest young pitching minds in the game and we are lucky to have him. He comes highly recommended by Wake Forest head coach and Georgetown alum Tom Walter and I cannot wait to see what he brings to our program over the coming years."

Wake Forest won a combined 58 games in Supplee’s two seasons in Winston-Salem where he served as the director of operations in 2013 and the volunteer assistant coach this past season. The Demon Deacons had six players selected in the MLB Draft in the past two seasons, including five pitchers.

Prior to Wake Forest, Supplee spent two seasons as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at Lynchburg College where, under his tutelage, five pitchers were selected to the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) All-Conference team and three to the South Region All-Region team. In each of Supplee's seasons, the Lynchburg pitching staff saw significant improvements lowering its team earned run average every year.

Supplee also recruited and oversaw the development of two pitchers named as the 2011 ODAC Rookie of the Year and the 2012 Virginia State Rookie of the Year.

Before Lynchburg, Supplee served as the pitching coach at Longwood University during the 2009 season. While at Longwood, he mentored two pitchers who went on to sign professional contracts. He began his coaching career at Millersville University in 2008 where he worked with the outfielders and assisted with the pitching staff, helping lead  the Marauders to the PSAC East regular-season title after finishing 9-37 the previous season.


 

 

Supplee pitched four seasons at Marist College, compiling a career record of 18-10 with a 3.79 earned run average. He helped the Red Foxes win the 2005 MAAC regular season and conference championships, advancing to the NCAA Tournament. Supplee graduated from Marist in 2007 with a B.A. in History.

“I am thrilled about the opportunity to associate myself with an institution and program with the prestige of Georgetown,” Supplee said. “There is so much upside to this program right now with the current players and conference realignment. It is hard not to get excited about the future of Georgetown baseball.”
