Josh Kieffer begins his first year with the Amherst College baseball program in 2018-19 as an assistant coach to J.P. Pyne.

The two are no strangers, as Kieffer served as an assistant coach for Pyne for the past three years at Clark University (Worcester, Mass.), where he worked primarily with the catchers.

The Millheim, Pa. native made his collegiate coaching debut in 2016, but has extensive coaching experience at a variety of levels.

This past summer, he was both a Pitching Coach and a Catching Instructor for the Sanford Mainers of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL). Kieffer spent the prior two summers on the coaching staff of the Chatham Anglers of the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League, under legendary skipper John Schiffner. In his role, he worked with top players from around the nation.

The Westminster College alum was a four-year letter winner behind the plate, helping lead the Titans to the postseason in three of his four years.

After leaving school, he served as an assistant coach at Concord (Mass.) Academy and spent two years on the staff at Concord-Carlisle High School.

Kieffer has also worked with the New England Blazers AAU program, serving as both an instructor and as a head coach.
