COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – Ursinus College Director of Athletics Laura Moliken has announced the hiring of Stan Exeter as head baseball coach. Exeter enters Collegeville after six seasons at the helm of Swarthmore, and succeeds retiring head coach Brian Thomas.
"We are excited to have Stan on board," said Ursinus College Director of Athletics Laura Moliken. "He brings a great baseball pedigree to Ursinus, as well as a proven track record of success from his days at Arcadia and Swarthmore."
"I'm excited to take over a highly successful and prestigious program as Ursinus," said Exeter. "I hope to help the team in anyway I can to improve and build upon the success by Coach T."
Exeter, who was the 2010 Centennial Conference Coach of the Year, led the Garnet to 89 wins over the last six seasons, including three straight 20 win seasons. His most successful season was during that 2010 campaign as Swarthmore qualified for the Centennial Conference playoffs for the first time in school history. The Garnet advanced all the way to the consolation final.
Exeter also enjoyed success at nearby Arcadia University. During his ten years at the helm, he posted a 181-166 record. He won two conference championships, including in 2006 when the Knights went 18-3 in the conference. He led the 2004 squad to a conference crown as the team finished the season ranked in the top 25 by the American Baseball Coaches Association. In addition to his baseball duties, he managed all athletic event operations and personnel at Arcadia.
A 1992 graduate of Lafayette, he was twice named All-Patriot League as a first baseman.
