Todd W Williams

  • Head Baseball Coach

Todd Williams, who guided the Mountain Cats into the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) starting in 2014 after seven seasons in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC), took over as head coach in 1998.

After struggling through a 12-35 first season, the Mountain Cats turned things around and finished 21-16 in 1999 and 23-19 in 2000. These marked the first 20-win seasons since 1982 when Coach Williams was a pitcher/infielder on the Pitt-Johnstown baseball team. The 2006 season was highlighted with the team setting another school record for wins with a 33-18 record and earning the No. 6-seed in the NCAA North Atlantic Region Tournament. In 2008, the Mountain Cats broke the 2006 wins record by posting a 37-19-1 record, winning the WVIAC Northern Division and advancing to the program’s second NCAA regional tournament.

Through 22 seasons, Coach Williams has posted a 502-489-4 overall record. This has been done by recruiting student-athletes who are committed to hard work and dedication to both academics and baseball. The quality of student-athletes in the program has risen every year.

On April 27, 2019, Coach Williams, already the "winningest" baseball coach in school history, earned his 500th career victory with a 5-4 PSAC win over Seton Hill University.
