Steve Englert is in his 13th season as an assistant coach at Boston College. Englert's primary responsibilities are working with the catchers and as a hitting coach.
Englert mentored Tony Sanchez who emerged as the top collegiate catcher in the country in 2009 and was a finalist for the Johnny Bench Award. Sanchez was selected fourth overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates, making him the highest draft pick ever from Boston College and made the Big League roster in 2013.
Englert has seen 35 Eagles selected in the Major League draft since he took a position at Boston College in 2002.
In addition to coaching the Eagles, Englert has also coached the Harwich Mariners in the Cape League for the past 15 seasons, including the last 11 at the helm. In the summer of 2008, Englert led the Mariners to its first Cape League title since 1987 and then followed it up with another championship in 2011. In 2012, he earned the Mike Curran Award winner as Manager of the Year after leading the Mariners to a 27-16-1 record and setting a league record 64 home runs.
Englert first served as an assistant with Harwich from 1998-2002, before being promoted to his current position as field manager in 2003. Under his tenure as head coach, the Mariners have averaged 19 players drafted per year and he has tutored over 40 All-Americans and over 200 played professionally.
Englert came to the Heights after spending one season at Holy Cross, where he coached the catchers and outfielders and was also the hitting instructor. He helped tutor the Crusaders to the Patriot League Tournament in 2001.
Prior to his stint at Holy Cross, he spent one season at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he coached the catchers and also worked as the hitting instructor. While at VCU, he helped lead the team to the Colonial Conference Tournament championship game.
Englert's first collegiate coaching job came in 1998 as an assistant at the University of Richmond. In his only year there, the Spiders broke the school single-season record for home runs, won the Colonial Conference, earned a bid to the NCAA tournament and finished the season ranked No. 25 in the country.
A 1987 Boston College graduate, Steve resides in Chestnut Hill, Mass., with his wife, Lisa, and their daughter, Samantha.
