Head Coach: Robert Ruiz
Now the second longest tenured coach in Westmont Baseball history, Robert Ruiz began serving as Westmont’s head coach in June of 2009. In 2012, Ruiz lead the Warriors to their first post seaon appearance in 15 years. In 2014, the Warrior went 39-19, won the GSAC Tournament and made the programs first appearance in the NAIA Opening Round Tournament. Westmont made a return trip to the NAIA Opening Round Tournament in 2015 and posted a record of 41-17.
In 2016, Westmont won the GSAC Regular season championship with a conference mark of 25-5 and an overall mark of 42-13. Ruiz was named the GSAC Baseball Coach of the Year, the first time a Westmont coach was so honored. Also for the first time in program history, Westmont hosted both the GSAC Championship Tournament and an NAIA Opening Round Tournament.
"Coach Ruiz is a strong Christian leader with a track record of winning", said Westmont Athletic Director Odell, "and he is someone who understands how to recruit and coach within the rigorous academic curriculum at Westmont."
A strong suit for the Warrior coach is his experience in evaluating baseball talent. Ruiz has served as a talent evaluator and instructor at the Stanford Baseball Camp, Team One Showcases and Under Armor National Tryouts, Tournaments and Camps.
Pitching Coach: Tony Cougoule
Tony Cougoule enters his 14th year as collegiate coach and begins his ninth year as the pitching coach for the Westmont baseball program. As the Warriors’ pitching coach, the staff has seen improvements in numerous statistical categories. From 2010 to 2013, the Warriors lowered their ERA by over a run each year. In 2014, the staff posted the lowest ERA (3.39) since 1977, only to be further reduced to 3.22 in 2015. In 2016, the staff ERA broke below 3.00, finishing at 2.97, which was eighth lowest in the NAIA.
The 2015 staff recorded the most strikeouts in program history (421) and the 2016 pitchers set single-season records for most saves (17) and most shutouts (8).
Cougoule has spent time as an instructor at numerous camps across the country including, Stanford, UCSB, UCSD, Team One Showcases and Under Armour National Tournaments.
