Matt Lisle • Assistant Coach • Santa Clara University
Matt Lisle is in his first year as an assistant coach at Santa Clara with his primary focus being on hitting and recruiting. Lisle comes to Santa Clara after serving as the lead assistant coach at Cal State University - East Bay during the 2013-2014 season. He also serves as an Associate Scout for the Detroit Tigers where he helps to identify and evaluate amateur & professional prospects in the Northern California area for the organization. As the batting and catching coach in his lone season at CSUEB, Lisle’s guidance led to an offensive turnaround that saw the Pioneer bats go from seven home runs in 2013 to a California Collegiate Athletic Conference leading 48 in 2014. The Pioneers ranked second in the CCAA in conference SLG% at .455 and RBI with 156 and finished the season ranked No. 36 in the NCAA in home runs per game.
