Framingham, Mass. – Framingham State University Director of Athletics Tom Kelley is pleased to announce the hiring of FSU alum Sean Callahan as the Rams head baseball coach.
"We are thrilled to welcome Sean back to Framingham State to lead the baseball program," said Kelley. "Sean brings a wealth of baseball knowledge and as a former Ram, he is familiar with the University, the baseball program, and the league. We are looking forward to Sean guiding the program into a new era."
Callahan spent the last three years as an assistant coach at the Division II and III level. Most recently, Callahan was an assistant with the baseball program at Stonehill College. While at Stonehill, Callahan was responsible for scouting opponents as well as implementing the off-season strength and conditioning program. He also assisted with all phases of recruiting from identifying potential student-athletes to scheduling campus visits and workouts.
Prior to his time at Stonehill, Callahan spent two seasons as the hitting and catching coach at the University of Massachusetts Boston. During his time with the Beacons, UMass Boston won the 2016 Little East regular season title and an appearance in the 2016 NCAA Division III New England Regional. In 2017, Callahan helped guide the Beacons to the Little East Conference Championship and their second straight appearance in the NCAA Division IIII New England Regional. The Beacons won the New England Regional and advanced to the 2017 NCAA Division III College World Series in Appleton, WI.
After the 2017 season with the Beacons, Callahan spent the summer as an assistant coach with the Wareham Gatemen of the Cape Cod Baseball League.
Callahan graduated from Framingham State in 2011 with a degree in business administration. He was a four year starter behind the plate for the Rams baseball team from 2008-2011 serving as an assistant captain in 2010 and a captain in 2011. He was tabbed with All-MASCAC honors after his junior season in which the Rams finished second in the MASCAC and advanced to the semifinals of the ECAC Tournament after compiling, a then school record, 24 victories on the year. After the 2010 season, Callahan was selected by the North Shore Navigators of the New England Collegiate Baseball League.
