Andrew See enters his sixth season as the pitching coach/recruiting coordinator for the Bobcats and his third as Associate Head Coach.
See's troops recorded 348 strikeouts during the 2010 campaign, the fifth-highest in the Mid-American Conference. In 2009, See's pitching corps finished third in the league with 29 wins, while senior Chris Rigo was named first-team All-MAC. In 2008 under See's tutelage, the Ohio pitching staff posted a 5.59 ERA, ranking fifth in the Mid-American Conference, and struck out 367 batters, good enough for fourth in the league. With See's help, junior Zach Elmer averaged 3.93 earned runs a game, which ranked sixth in the league, while Rigo was tied for second in the MAC with 77 strikeouts. See also helped bring in one of the top recruiting classes in the conference for 2009.
Working with an injury-riddled and relatively inexperienced staff in his first season, See saw his Bobcats post a 5.55 team ERA. Two Bobcat hurlers finished in the top 20 in the MAC in regular season ERA, led by Rigo with a 4.18 ERA. Rigo finished third in the conference in complete games and tossed a one-hit shutout against Miami during the season. Under See's guidance, junior Andrew Shisila posted a team-best 2.62 ERA working primarily out of the bullpen and did not allow a run in his final 14.1 innings pitched.
See, a native of Adrian, Mich., served as the recruiting coordinator and assistant coach at Appalachian State for the 2005 and 2006 seasons and was an assistant during the 2004 season at North Carolina-Greensboro. During the summer of 2005, See was the head coach of the Southern Ohio Copperheads, the Athens-based team that competes in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate league.
See had a three-year career as an Ohio player from 1999-2001 after transferring from Georgia following his freshman season. In addition to playing center field and first base, See was a starting pitcher in the weekend rotation for two years and served as the Bobcats' closer as a senior. He was a career .350 hitter with 33 home runs and 116 RBIs at the plate and he went 13-12 with a 7.20 ERA and 125 strikeouts in 39 career appearances on the mound. See earned Mideast Region and Mid-American Conference First Team honors as a senior in 2001 when he led the Bobcats with 17 homers, which ties for third all-time in a single season at Ohio, and a (then) school-record 70 RBIs. He ranks second all-time at Ohio with a .647 career slugging percentage and is seventh on the career home runs list.
The utility player carried his career over to the professional ranks when he played for the Chillicothe Paints of the independent Frontier League for three seasons from 2001-03. Playing multiple positions, See helped the Paints to Eastern Division titles in 2001 and 2003 and during his final season he led the team with eight saves and pulled double duty by serving as the team's bullpen coach.
See got his coaching start as an undergraduate student assistant at Ohio during the offseason prior to the 2002 season and parlayed that into an assistant coaching position for the Bobcats as a graduate student during the 2003 season.
See graduated from Ohio in 2002 with a bachelor's degree in sport industry and he earned a master's in coaching education and athletic administration from Ohio in 2003.
