Josh Dzurick was named the head coach of the Spartans in July 2014. He's mentored 12 all-HCAC athletes, including Freshmen of the Year honorees in 2015 and 2016 and the Offensive Player of the Year in 2018, as part of a 66-79-1 record. The program's first National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-American at any level occurred during his tenure, too, as Laurren Ladwig was so honored in 2018.
In four seasons at the helm, MU has seen many bright spots. Included in that are the 2015 team earning a spot in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference postseason tournament and placing for a tie for third on the standings; the 2016 squad finishing 20-16 to hit 20-or-more triumphs for the second time in four years, and the 2018 team earning a conference tournament berth.
Dzurick is a 1998 graduate of Tiffin University where he received a degree in business and sports management. He received his Master's of Education degree from Bowling Green in the field of sports management which has led him to serve as the assistant athletics director in charge of compliance and eligibility and as head women's basketball coach where he's earned two HCAC Coach of the Year honors.
