Ken Eriksen
Head Coach
University of South Florida

As coach of South Florida the past five years, Eriksen's record of 235-120 has elevated the program to a top 10 status. With Ken at the helm, the Bulls have recorded 40 or more victories in each season, with two conference championships in the Southern Atlantic Alliance and two automatic berths into the NCAA Regionals. The 2001 squad defeated No. 1 seed Alabama in NCAA Regionals but fell just short of reaching the World Series.

That summer, Ken was named to the U.S. National Team coaching staff, responsible for selecting the 2004 U.S. Olympic team that will compete in Athens, Greece. He has worked with some of the best players in the country before, including several former Olympians. Eriksen is a member of the United States Coaching staff and was head coach of the under-19 team for the 1997 World Championships.

Eriksen has been involved at the major level of fastpitch for 16 years as a player and coach. He started playing men's major fastpitch after graduation from South Florida, where he was a four-year starter on the baseball team. This outfielder/pitcher had a career batting average over .300 and an ERA of 2.80.

After earning a BA in political science, Ken became a baseball hitting instructor at South Florida for one year before he turned his attention to fastpitch softball. He competed at the men's major level with the Ft. Pierce Merchants (1985-86), the Clearwater Bombers (1986-1992), and Salt Lake City (1992-1995). In 1997 Eriksen helped the Tampa Smokers win the ASA National Championship.

A wealth of international experience includes playing in eight ISC World Championships and eight ASA Men's Major Nationals. In 1992, Eriksen was named first team All-World catcher.
