Dr. Michael Roach
Assistant Coach | 1st Season
The University of South Dakota

Dr. Michael Roach is in his first season with DSU baseball as an assistant coach.

He originally joined DSU as an Instructor of Economics teaching at University Center in Sioux Falls. He is now on campus in Madison full time as an Assistant Professor of Management in the University’s College of Business and Information Systems.

Dr. Roach played his college baseball as a starting pitcher at Yankton College in Yankton, SD, where he also played amateur baseball in the summers. He was an integral part of the development of Brandon Valley baseball as a coach, a board member, and most recently as the Director of Baseball Operations. He has coached from tee ball to high school, developed and taught winter pitching and hitting camps, and helped over a dozen players achieve their dreams of playing college baseball.   

“DSU has an unlimited future right now. Great things are happening on campus, both academically and athletically. Coach Schaab and Coach Banse have a fantastic vision and plan for the future of this program and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of it.”

Originally from Yankton, SD, Dr. Roach and his wife Debra have two children attending the University of South Dakota and an English Setter named Varitek.
