Dan Luisi has joined the Stony Brook staff as volunteer assistant coach for the 2014 season. Luisi comes to the Seawolves after two seasons as an assistant at his alma mater Post University, where he played for the Eagles from 2007-10. Luisi will work with the #Seawolves outfielders for defense and work with the whole team on hitting.

"Stony Brook is a great program with a great coaching staff," Luisi said. "I am excited to contribute to the winning tradition here. The players have worked extremely hard throughout the fall, and we look forward to competing in the spring."

Prior to Stony Brook, Luisi served as the hitting and defense coach at Post for the 2012-13 seasons. During his two years, the Eagles offense went from last in the conference to third, and six players went on to sign professional contracts.

Luisi made his coaching debut at Farmingdale State College in 2011, and his duties on the Rams staff included hitting and defense. That spring the Rams won the Skyline Conference and qualified for the New York State Regional. Farmingdale State was ranked second in New York State, according to the NCAA Division III rankings.

After graduating from Holy Trinity High School, in Hicksville N.Y., Luisi continued his baseball career at Post University, where he played from 2007-2010. The three-time captain was a first-team All-Conference and first-team All-Region middle infielder. At Post, he rewrote the record books and currently owns all-time records in four offensive categories. Most recognizable is his all-time hits record, shattering the previous mark by over 40 hits. Off the diamond, Luisi was named the Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2010.

In the 2011-2013 summers, Luisi has been the coach of the New York Atlantics of the ACBL. In the 2012 season the Atlantics were the Kaiser Division Champions.

Luisi currently resides in Bethpage, with his two brothers Anthony (Molloy) and Nick (St. Johns), both collegiate baseball players.
