Pitt Baseball

Pitt baseball added to their staff on Friday, as they hired FGCU assistant coach Brandon Romans as hitting coach, according to Kendall Rogers of D1Baseball.

Romans played collegiate ball for UCF from 2007-09 as an outfielder, hitting over .300 for his career. He spent the following three seasons as a volunteer assistant coach for the program, helping them reach back-t0-back NCAA Tournament appearances from 2011-12.

He got his first assistant coaching job with Jacksonville State, coaching there from 2013-15 and playing a role in them winning the 2014 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament.

Romans returned to UCF in 2016, working mainly with catchers, outfielders and hitters and then coached at Austin Peay in 2017.  At Austin Peay, he served as the recruiting coordinator, outfield coach and hitting coach, which saw his players hit a school record 84 home runs.

He spent the previous six seasons, 2018-23, as assistant coach at FGCU. Romans worked mainly with recruiting, as hitting coach and with various position players.

Romans will fill one of the assistant coaching roles that Pitt baseball has to fill over this summer period. Assistant coach Joe Mercadante took the head coaching job at North Florida and assistant coach/recruiting coordinator Ty Megahee accepted a similar job at ACC foe Florida State.
