David Pierce

People to Watch Class of 2014

Head Baseball Coach, Tulane University

David Pierce was named Head Baseball Coach at Tulane University on June 8, and since then has been supremely focused.

“My goal is to coach this game as long as I can,” he says.

Pierce has always been comfortable coaching baseball. “I’ve always felt comfortable behind and L-screen (throwing batting practice) and I’ve felt very comfortable in the dugout. It’s my office. It’s where I feel like I do my best work,” he says.

While serving as head baseball coach of Sam Houston State University, he took the team to the NCAA Regionals in 2014 for the third consecutive season for the second time in the program’s history. He also earned the Southland Conference Coach of the Year in ’12 and ’13, as well as being named Regional Coach of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association in ’12.

Pierce says he’s, “really looking forward to being a part of the Tulane family,” he says, “Tulane University, the city of New Orleans and watching this team – who we know has talent – develop into a great team.” And that his reward is seeing the development of the young men with which he works.
