Baseball Head Coach Matt Cornacchione Resigns After 9 Seasons with the Warriors

Nyack, NY - Matt Cornacchione has resigned his position as baseball head coach at Nyack College to pursue other professional opportunities, according to an announcement Friday by athletic director Keith Davie. Cornacchione has held the position since 2009 and spent nine seasons with the Warriors. Cornacchione reached the CACC playoffs five times in the past 7 seasons: 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 & 2018. 
 
"The College very much appreciates the positive direction that the Warriors' baseball team has taken under Matt's leadership and wishes him well as he moves in a new direction," Davie said. "Our student-athletes have achieved success on the field, in the classroom and in life through his guidance and support.
 
"Our search for a new head coach who can guide us to even greater achievements is moving forward," Davie said. "We are aware how important this position is for our institution and are making every effort to make sure we have the best fit for the Nyack community."
 
Highlights of Cornacchione's career at Nyack include the 2nd biggest turnaround nationally in NCAA Division II, moving from a 3-35 team in 2011 to a 26 win team in one years time. The 2012 team returned to the CACC post season tournament for the first time since 2009, and gained an at-large bid to the National Christian College World Series, which was the school's first appearance since 2003.
