|Title:||Head Coach - Softball|
In 2013, Peter Coffin enters his 2nd season as the head women's softball coach at UMaine-Presque Isle. In his first year at the helm, the team finished 14-21 including an 8-2 mark in the team's final 10 games.
A native of Millinocket, ME, Coffin is an UMPI alumnus, graduating in 1986 with a degree in Health, Physical Education, and Recreation. He has been teaching in the Presque Isle school system for the past 12 years.
"Peter comes to us with extensive coaching experience in a variety of sports including 14 years of softball coaching," said then- Athletic Director Chris Corsello upon Coffin's hiring.
"I would like to keep the program going in the direction it has started moving in the past two seasons," said Coffin. "I am also looking to find ways to attract local softball talent to the university. As a teacher and coach in Presque Isle I have seen a lot of talented softball players who leave the area to attend college and do not play the sport after high school. I would like to talk to Aroostook county athletes and try to get them to continue their softball interests as well as get a solid education right in their own backyard."
