The 2011-12 academic year marked Bill Currier’s first as head coach of the Fairfield University baseball team. It was a year in which he guided the Stags to a program-record 27 victories and to their first MAAC Championship berth in 12 years. He was recognized by the league’s coaches as the 2012 Anaconda Sports MAAC Coach of the Year. He also picked up his 500th career victory in April with the Stags first-ever doubleheader sweep at Yale University. 

Fairfield, which went 27-28 overall and 14-10 in the MAAC, also set single season records for double plays (52), innings pitched (460.1), strikeouts (315), and shutouts (5) in 2012. The Stags pitching staff led the MAAC with a 3.93 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP with opponents hitting just .269. 
During the 2011 season, Currier served as Fairfield's Associate Head Coach, taking over the reins of the program upon the retirement of John Slosar at the end of the season. Currier spent the 2010 season as a volunteer assistant at the University of Tennessee after spending 22 seasons as the head coach at the University of Vermont. Currier was the winningest coach in Catamount history, posting a 486-470 overall record, including a 240-203 America East record. He helped Vermont win two America East Regular Season Championships and was named America East Coach of the Year three times, in 2002, 2003, and 2006. 

Currier was presented with the 2009 Ralph Lapointe Award from the Vermont Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association for his service to athletics. In 2002, he was named the recipient of the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association's (NEIBA) Jack Butterfield Award, given annually to an active New England coach who exhibits integrity and dedication to the game of baseball. Currier also was inducted into the Vermont Principals Association Hall of Fame in 2005. 
 
Currier, a 1984 graduate of Vermont, was a key member of the Catamounts that advanced to the title game of the 1981 East Coast Athletic Conference New England Regionals. He hit .295 and led the Cats with five home runs, four triples and 65 total bases. That June he was drafted in the sixth round by the Philadelphia Phillies and after signing, he went on to play three seasons in their system. 

Currier earned a master’s in physical education from Western Carolina in 1986 where he also served as an assistant coach under Jack Leggett. He was also the head coach at Mitchell Junior College for two seasons prior to returning to Vermont.
