Head Baseball Coach
Head Coach - Joe Kinney
Joe Kinney has completed 13 seasons as the head coach at Lafayette. Since taking over in 1999, Kinney has continuously raised the talent level to the point where Lafayette is consistently in contention for a Patriot League title.
Lafayette is coming off of a trip to the 2012 Patriot League Tournament, the first time that the Leopards made back-to-back postseason appearances since 2006 and 2007.
The Leopards also advanced to the Patriot League Tournament in 2009 and 2011, including an underdog run to the 2009 championship series. As the No. 4 seed, they upended Bucknell in the semifinals to earn a date with Army in the finals.
Perhaps the most notable year under Kinney came in 2007 - a season for the record books - as the Leopards recorded a program-best 33 wins, including 17 Patriot League victories, and advanced to the NCAA Regional. The team's performance that season earned Kinney his first-ever Patriot League Coach of the Year honor.
Under Kinney, Lafayette has boasted 45 All-Patriot League selections and three Patriot League Players of the Year (A.J. Miller '11, Adam Rosenberg '04, Vince D'Angelis '02).
Kinney was also at the helm in 2004 for the Leopards' first trip to Patriot League Championship Series and in 2002 for Lafayette's first 20-win season in a decade.
Assistant Coach Gregg Durrah
Gregg Durrah has been in the dugout for all of Joe Kinney's 13-year tenure at Lafayette. Durrah works primarily as the Leopards' pitching coach while also assisting with recruiting efforts.
Prior to Lafayette, Durrah was an assistant coach at Easton High School from 1992-99 following stints as an assistant coach at Rutgers-Newark and Fairleigh Dickinson. Durrah, a four-year collegiate player for the Knights, graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in Business Management.
Durrah currently works as a probation officer for Northampton County and is also in the Marine Corps Reserve where he holds the rank of gunnery sergeant.
