Casey Job

Ben Bernard, owner and general manager of the Glens Falls Dragons baseball team has announced that Casey Job has been named the new head coach beginning with the 2016 season. Job currently coached the SUNY Adirondack Timberwolves. He replaces Colter Bostick at the helm of the Dragons. Bostick took over as the interim coach of the Glens Falls team late in the 2015 season. 

 Job was named head baseball coach at SUNY Adirondack in May of 2014 after being an assistant coach at SUNY Brockport for one year(2012) and an assistant at Fulton Montgomery Community College for two years(2013-2014).  In 2012 Brockport lost in the championship of the SUNYAC tournament, finishing 26-17.  The highly successful Head Coach Justin Beach looked to Job to work primarily with catchers and hitters.  Catcher Nick Bunce, who was on the 2012 Brockport team, became a professional catcher with the Trinidad Triggers of the Pecos League and Rockland Boulders of the Can-Am Association.

While at Fulton Montgomery, Coach Job was part of a coaching staff that brought the baseball team to the postseason for the first time in almost twenty years.  After a transitioning year at Fulton Montgomery in his first season , Coach Job assisted legendary Region III baseball coach Dave Hennessey to a 4th place finish in the Mountain Valley Conference and a birth to the Region III sub regionals.  FMCC lost to Niagara County Community College in the sub regional best of three series in two games.

Along with Job’s collegiate coaching experience, he has coached at various other levels.  Job was an assistant coach with Melvin Roads American Legion who is one of the top American Legion programs in all of New York State.  Coach Job was also the Co-Head Coach for the Waterford Nationals of the Albany Twilight League.  Job has also been an assistant coach and strength conditioning coordinator at Troy High School under his mentor Curtis Nobles.

As a player Casey Job has been a lifelong catcher.  He played his high school baseball at Troy High School.  Job was lucky enough to play for the great Section 2 coach, Jack Brady.  He was also the catcher for the former New York Met and Baltimore Oriole, Eric Beaulac.  After Troy High School he played catcher at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy where his team made it to the NJCAA Division III World Series in Tyler, Texas.  In 2008, Job transferred to SUNY Brockport where he played catcher for three seasons.  While at Brockport his teams played in the SUNYAC Championship in three straight years.  In 2010 Brockport won their first SUNYAC Championship in six years and advanced to the NCAA Division III Regionals.  Brockport also received an at large bid to the NCAA DIII Regionals in 2011 and finished with a record of 30-14.  Coach Job played his summer seasons with numerous local summer teams including the South Troy Dodgers, Clifton Park Diamondbacks, Lansingburgh Royals, Melvin Roads American Legion, and Waterford Nationals.  In 2007 Job was the starting catcher for the Melvin Roads American Legion team that won the state championship in Utica, New York. Job has wrapped up his playing career after finishing his 8th season in the Albany Twilight League.  He was a player/coach for the Waterford Nationals who have been one of the top teams in the league year after year.

Coach Job is currently in his second season as the Head Baseball Coach at SUNY Adirondack.  In his first season, Coach Job led the Timberwolves to an 11-28 record.  The win total was 5 wins more than the previous season.  Josh Hoagland was an All-Mountain Valley Conference Player, leading the team in every major offensive category.  Hoagland hit .427 with 4 homeruns and 22 RBI’s.  The 2015 SUNY Adirondack Baseball Team was a hard working team that fought in every came.  Adirondack swept Clinton Community College and Columbia Greene Community College.  The also took two games from Jefferson Community College and ended the season with a win against Fulton Montgomery Community College.

Casey Job is a Residence Hall Director at SUNY Adirondack and resides in Queensbury, NY. Job is a baseball junkie.  He has wanted to be a part of big time summer collegiate baseball since he was a young kid. 

“I’ve always enjoyed hearing the stories about current and former major leaguers who have come through leagues like the PGCBL, NYCBL, and Cape Cod League. Glens Falls has a very historic baseball past and I’m truly honored to coach this team.” 

Coach Job is also looking forward to working with Bernard because of his vast experience in the baseball business.

“I’m also very thankful that Ben Bernard would give me this opportunity.  He has an amazing baseball resume and I really can’t thank him enough for him allowing me to coach the Dragons.  It’s going to be an amazing experience to coach high level college baseball players who want to win and continue to improve their skills on the field.”

Job graduated from Brockport in 2011 with a B.S. in Sport Management and a minor in Coaching.

With Job being  joined by newly added bench coach Rich Guglielmi, Director of Player Personal  Kevin Clouser, the Glens Falls Dragons will certainly be ready to “Breathe some fire” into their PGCBL opponents during the 2016 season.
