Ted Hurvul

Ted Hurvul begins his third season as an assistant coach in 2021-22.

Hurvul will serve as the co-recruiting coordinator and the pitching coach.

Bryant's pitching staff shined in Hurvul's second season in 2021. The Bulldogs finished the year third nationally in shutouts (8), 11th in ERA (3.52), 27th in K:BB ratio (2.83) and 42nd in K/9 (9.6). Hurvul oversaw one of the region's most dominant starting rotations of Tyler Mattison, Tyler Schoff and Vito Morgese as the trio combined to go 21-6 with 224 strikeouts on the year. Mattison enjoyed one of the best seasons in DI program history, earning NEC Pitcher of the Year honors with a 10-3 record, 95 strikeouts and a 2.46 ERA in 80.1 innings. Schoff and Morgese also earned All-NEC honors, with Schoff punching out 72 and walking just 14 in 69.1 innings. Following the year, three members of Hurvul's staff were selected to play professional baseball. Mattison became the highest drafted player in program history (108th overall) when the Detroit Tigers took him in the fourth round. Schoff signed a free-agent contract with the Washington Nationals, while Kevin Gould signed professionally in the independent league.

Hurvul's first season with the Bulldogs was shortened due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ending the season after 15 games. Mason Palmieri and Luke Garofalo both excelled under Hurvul, combining to win three games and allow just 25 hits in over 34 innings of work.

Hurvul comes to Smithfield after serving as the pitching coach at Fairfield for the last four seasons, helping the Stags win 30+ games three times and win the 2016 MAAC Championship. The Stags featured one of the regions top pitching staffs during Hurvul's tenure, leading the MAAC in ERA (3.88), hits allowed per nine (8.14), shutouts (5), strikeout-to-walk ratio (2.08) and walks allowed per nine (3.55) in 2019. Fairfield led the MAAC in K:BB ratio and finished first or second in ERA in each of Hurvul's four seasons.

"I am very thankful and excited for the opportunity coach Klosterman has given me to become part of the Bulldog family," Hurvul said. "The Bryant Baseball program has a track record of great success and tradition that I look forward to building on. I can't wait to meet and begin to develop relationships with all of the players, staff and alumni. Go Bulldogs!"
