CSD's Brohawn named as Salisbury Baseball Head Coach

Posted: Updated:

Salisbury, MD.- Salisbury University has a new baseball coach. Troy Brohawn, a former major league pitcher and 2001 World Series Champion with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and more recently head coach of the Cambridge South Dorchester High School baseball team, is just the program's fourth coach since 1964.

Brohawn returns to Salisbury after being the Sea Gulls pitching coach from 2006-2009. During that time, Salisbury posted a 149-32 record. While coaching, Brohawn also completed his degree in physical education. Over the past five years, the Eastern Shore native served as head coach for his alma mater CSD, leading the Vikings to the 1A state championship in 2013.

Brohawn was named first-team All-American while at Nebraska, setting a then school record with 123 strikeouts in 111 1/3 innings, including 13 complete games during the 1993 season. Brohawn would be drafted in the fourth round in 1994 by the San Francisco Giants. He also spent time with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and appeared in a scoreless inning of relief in a World Series win for the Diamondbacks, against the Yankees in 2001. In three years, Brohawn made 82 appearances and finished 17 games, recording one save and compiling a 4-4 record.

Brohawn takes over a talented roster from former Doug Fleetwood, who announced that he was stepping down after 14 seasons this past spring. In 2014, the team advanced to the Division III World Series for just the fourth time in program history.
