Jake Haney returns to Herkimer College in 2022 as the Generals pitching coach after being away from the program for the past two seasons. Haney began his coaching career with Herkimer in 2015 and helped lead the pitching staff to become one of the best in the nation. During his time from 2015-2019, pitching and defense combined for 82 shutouts, a 2.19 team ERA, and an opponent batting average of .256.

Haney brings with him over 17 years of experience as a member of the Northern Fastpitch League where he gained extensive knowledge from some of the best players in men’s softball. Jake said, “Growing up playing men’s fastpitch softball, and being able to learn from some of the best minds in the game, gave me the knowledge I need to help our athletes succeed not only at Herkimer but beyond.”

Head Coach PJ Anadio said, "Bar none, Jake's knowledge, understanding and teaching ability is what sets him apart from all the pitching coaches In the country. His affinity for not only pitching but also human bio mechanics and hunger to learn is a huge asset for not only the pitching staff but the entire team. We are looking for big things from Coach Jake and his staff in the 2022 campaign. 

Jake graduated from Whitesboro High School in Marcy, NY, and now resides in Fayetteville, NY where he is employed as a financial advisor for Blue Ridge Financial Services, as well as a swimming pool technician for Stiles Pools Inc. during the summer.
