St. Gregory's Names Bandy Head Baseball Coach

Posted: Updated:
SHAWNEE, Oklahoma -

Gary Bandy is the new head baseball coach at St. Gregory's University, athletic director Jeff Potter recently announced. Bandy, a native of San Mateo, Calif., takes over for Chris Pingry, who served in the position for 12 seasons. Bandy was an assistant coach for the Cavaliers last season.

"I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to lead this program," said Bandy, who last season worked with SGU's pitchers and catchers in addition to serving as the program's recruiting coordinator and strength and conditioning coach. "Not only do I look for our teams to give unparalleled effort on the field, but also be a group that our university can be proud of off the field."

Prior to arriving at St. Gregory's, Bandy served two seasons as assistant coach at Hastings College (Neb.), one year as an assistant at York College (Neb.), and was the head coach for the Aurora (Neb.) Junior Legion baseball team.

During his tenure at Hastings, two Broncos were selected to the All-GPAC team. At York, Bandy was part of a coaching staff that led the Panthers to a 39-14 record and an appearance in the MCAC Championship game.

"We are excited to have Coach Bandy lead our program into the future," Potter said. "He embodies what we were looking for – both as a coach and as a person."

Prior to joining the staff at York, Bandy was a starting catcher and relief pitcher for the Panthers, earning All-MCAC honorable mention honors in 2008. He was part of San Mateo College's Coast Conference North championship teams in 2006 and 2007.

Bandy earned his master's degree in teaching from Hastings in 2013 and his bachelor's degree from York. Bandy and his wife, Zeruiah, have two daughters: Maddux and Venice.
