Two Vermont collegiate programs will have new head coaches with Matt Rodovick rejoining Saint Michael's College as its head baseball coach and Tom White was named the new mentor at Lyndon State.
Named to the post on August 9, Rodovick was a member of the Saint Michael's coaching staff during parts of the three previous years, and last season was on the staff at Plattsburgh State. He served as the Purple Knights interim head coach in the spring of 2012 guiding the team to 11 victories that year, the program's first back in the Northeast-10 Conference since 1998. The 11 wins included an upset of nationally-ranked Franklin Pierce, 5-3. A native of Stamford, Vermont who is a graduate of Springfield College, he also has been the pitching coach for the Colchester Cannons American Legion program the last three seasons.
