Mike Marron joined the Stony Brook coaching staff in September 2009 after four years as an assistant coach at UMass-Lowell. Marron serves as the pitching coach in addition to helping with recruiting.
Marron guided the Stony Brook pitching staff to an America East best 3.36 ERA in 2011, which ranked 39th in the country. The Seawolves staff also ranked 14th in the country in walks per nine innings (2.62) and 16th in hits per nine innings (7.99).
In addition, junior Nick Tropeano was named a second team All-American and was drafted in the fifth round of the 2011 MLB First-Year Player Draft by the Houston Astros. The first player in America East history to be named Pitcher of the Year twice, Tropeano was fifth in the nation in strikeouts per nine innings (11.52), seventh in wins (12) and 25th in ERA (1.84).
Marron also mentored freshman right-hander Brandon McNitt as he earned America East Rookie of the Year honors in addition to being named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American. McNitt went 7-3 and his 2.03 ERA ranked 37th in the nation.
McNitt also took part in one of two Stony Brook no-hitters this season. McNitt and Tropeano combined to throw a no-hitter on March 27 against Army just over a week after freshman Frankie Vanderka threw the first no-hitter in program history on March 18 against NJIT.
Tropeano, McNitt and junior Tyler Johnson ranked one, two and three, respectively, in the America East in ERA and Johnson joined Tropeano on the All-America East first team for the second straight season. The Seawolves staff allowed 52 fewer earned runs than any team in the America East and their team ERA ranked over a run better than any team in the conference.
In his first season with the Seawolves, the pitching staff ranked third in the America East in ERA and second in strikeouts. Sophomore right-hander Nick Tropeano was named the America East Co-Pitcher of the Year and sophomore right-hander Tyler Johnson earned a spot on the All-America East first team as the Seawolves won their second America East title in three seasons and also won their first ever Division I NCAA tournament game at Myrtle Beach Regional.

The previous year he led the UMass-Lowell pitching staff to the eighth best ERA in the nation (3.37). Marron helped the Riverhawks to 121 victories in his four years including two appearances in the NCAA Regionals.

The NECBL Coach of the Year, Marron guided the Dukes to a 28-20 record, up from a 13-28 clip in 2007. The most improved team in the NECBL, Pittsfield advanced to the Southern Division Championship Series.
A four-year player and three-year starter with the College of Holy Cross Crusaders, Marron arrived on the Worcester campus as a pitcher but converted to catcher his sophomore year and immediately earned All-Patriot League second team honors. He also earned the Riopel Award as the team's most valuable player and the Ray Dobens Award for most improved player honors that year.
The following summer, Marron joined the Mill City All-Americans of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) and batted .280 for the season. Marron also enjoyed a solid season as a junior at Holy Cross, batting a team-high .346 and fielding a perfect 1.000 percent. He was named captain as a senior and completed his degree in English with a concentration in Africana studies.
