Head Coach John Casey's long-time lieutenant Bob Clarke returned to the coaching staff in 2016 after two seasons away. He had stepped down in 2013 when he was promoted to Athletics Director at Newburyport (Mass.) High School. Clarke was first hired as Coach Casey's assistant in 1988, left the post for a few years and returned in 1993. He was a member of the program during three ECAC and two NESCAC championships as well as four NCAA Tournament berths. Coach Clarke returned to his familiar role as first base coach and outfielders coach.
Since his return to the staff, the Jumbos have won two NESCAC titles and made two NCAA tournament appearances.
