Larry Hiser served as Endicott’s Director of Athletics and head baseball coach for 13 years from 1994-2007.
As an administrator, Hiser’s leadership laid the foundation for success as the Endicott Athletics Department developed and matured in their NCAA Division III membership. During his tenure, the College began its co-education growth, athletically, through the adoption of men’s programs including baseball, basketball, lacrosse, and soccer in the mid-90’s. Later, the additions of cross country, golf, volleyball, and football, widely cut by other institutions across the country, and the construction of the Post Center further lifted Endicott into prominence.
Thirteen seasons in the dugout as skipper of the Endicott baseball team produced a GNAC title in 1997, four CCC Championships in 2000, 2003, 2004, and 2006, four NCAA Division III New England Regional Tournament appearances, and 282 career coaching victories. Hiser was twice named Coach of the Year, once by the GNAC in 1997 and again in 2000 in Endicott’s first season as members of the CCC. Two players under his tutelage, Bryan Caruso ’02 and Greg Allain ’05, went on to play in the professional ranks.
