Associate Head Baseball Coach Brian Fay
Entering his fifth season as a Fairfield assistant coach, Brian Fay was promoted to the role of Associate Head Coach after helping guide the Stags to two MAAC Regular Season Championships and three 30-win seasons.View Brian's Bio ⟩
In total, the Stags have won 107 games and 64 percent of their contests during his stay.
Fay has also been a part of back-to-back MAAC Regular Season Championships, including the most historic regular season in conference history, helping guide the Stags to a 35-1 record and a .972 winning percentage, the highest in NCAA Division I history.
Fairfield has set the program's single season wins record twice in the last four years, highlighted by a 39-win output in 2021 which helped the Stags to the program's first-ever At-Large bid into the NCAA Regionals.
Fay has also helped mentor 21 All-MAAC players in his four seasons, including back-to-back MAAC Players of the Year in Jack Gethings (2019) and Mike Caruso (2021). Caruso saw a 174 point improvement in his batting average during the 2021 season helping him to a .413 batting average and the coveted major award.
Individually, the Stags have set or tied numerous single season program records. Gethings became the program's all-time hits leader after tallying 88 base hits in 2019. Sluggers Justin Guerrera and Charlie Pagliarini also tied the program's single season home runs record by connecting on 13 long balls in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
With Fay helping the offense, the Stags have hit .282 as a team in the last four years while obliterating the program's single season home run record by launching 75 long balls in 2022, besting the previous record by 31.
One of the reasons for the Stags during their historic 2021 season was their offensive production as Fairfield held a .313 team batting average, the highest by any Stags team. The .313 batting average and .408 on-base percentage both ranked in the top-10 in the country.
He has also aided in the development of 21 All-MAAC players, including 13 offensive players. Six of those eight Stags were named to the conference’s First Team.
Fay was a four-year letter winner at Siena and won the MAAC Championship as a junior in 2014, advancing to the NCAA Regionals in the Fort Worth Regional where he helped the Saints win their first-ever NCAA Tournament game by reaching base three times and scoring two runs against Dallas Baptist. For his career, Fay collected 166 hits and drove in 101 runs for the Saints.
After graduating from Siena, Fay stayed in the baseball world in various outlets. He was an assistant baseball coach at Hudson Valley Community College, helping the team to a 25-10 record for a team that finished third in the nation with a .370 batting average.
