Head Coach | 2nd Season
Edinboro University (PA)

E-mail:  Coach Schaab

Geoff Schaab begins his second season as Dakota State University Baseball Head Coach.

Prior arriving to Dakota State, Schaab served as the Head Coach, Associate Head Coach and Director of Baseball Operations with the Northern Virginia (NoVA) Fellowship of Christian Athletes travel (16-18 years old) baseball team, where his team rose from finishing 25th out of 26 teams in 2014 (2-17 overall record), to No. 8 the following season (19-14 overall record) and No. 2 in 2016 (19-8 overall record).

He was also a regular instructor at local and regional baseball camps to include NoVA FCA Baseball Academy and at Messiah College as a hitting coach and infield instructor.

Schaab played collegiate baseball at Edinboro University (Pa.) – formerly NCAA Division II – in what it recognized as one of the premier NCAA Division II conferences – the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.  He was named a ‘Newcomer to Watch’ as an incoming freshman by Collegiate Baseball Magazine in 2000 and started at second base and left field, finishing with a career .315 batting average.  He only struck out 26 times in 409 career plate appearances.

Upon graduation at Edinboro in 2003, Schaab moved to Northern Virginia in 2004 and worked for four years as an Intelligence Analyst with the Defense Intelligence Agency.  He then served as a Senior Sanctions Investigator with the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control for seven years.

“I am extremely blessed and thankful to be working for such a quality NAIA Baseball program in Dakota State,” said Schaab.  “I’ve had very good mentors and friends in the collegiate game to include NCAA Division I Head Coach Bruce Peddie (University of Louisiana-Monroe).  I am very Passionate about wanting to coach these young men and further exicted about changing the direction and path of DSU Baseball."

Geoff has an older brother Robert Todd Schaab, who played at NCAA Division I Youngstown State (Ohio) from 1998-99 and then at NCAA Division II Indiana University (Pa.) from 2000-02 (where they played against one another a total of eight times).

Geoff is a native of Tonawanda, N.Y. where he graduated from Kenmore West High School.  He currently resides in Madison, S.D.
