Steve Chatham begins his third year at LMU after serving five seasons as the hitting coach at perennial JUCO-powerhouse College of Southern Nevada. Like two of head coach Jason Gill's other assistants, Chatham also has ties back to Cal State Fullerton, having played for the Titans from 1995-98.

Chatham and the Lion coaching staff most recently guided the baseball program to an even 27-27 overall record and a 14-10 mark in the WCC during the 2012 season. The conference record saw the Lions finish tied for third. Working with the hitters and outfielders, Chatham helped LMU place six players on the All-WCC teams, including four offensive players, highlighted by first-teamers Colton Plaia and outfielder Matt Lowenstein.

In his first season as an assistant coach at LMU, Chatham helped the program to its best overall record since 2004, posting a mark of 30-25 in 2011. The Lions finished 11-10 in the West Coast Conference, earning a tie for third overall. The Lions placed five players on All-Conference teams, while four were taken in the MLB draft, including three in the first 12 rounds for the first time since 2005.

Over his five-year stint, Chatham helped the College of Southern Nevada Coyotes earn three Scenic West Athletic Conference Championships, two JUCO Region XVIII Championships, and one JUCO Western District Championship.

In 2010, the Coyotes, led by the play of Major League Baseball top draft pick, Bryce Harper, won a berth to the JUCO World Series where the team placed third and finished the season with a record of 52-16 overall.

Chatham started his coaching career as an assistant coach at The Bishop School in La Jolla, Calif., where he was in charge of all aspects of the team including pitching, hitting and outfield duties.

As a player, Chatham was a four-year letterman at Cal State Fullerton, where he was a member of the 1995 National Championship team. The centerfielder is seventh all-time in games played for the Titans and holds a career .339 batting average in college. In 1999, Chatham entered the Boston Red Sox organization as a pitcher.

Chatham earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from UNLV in 2005. He and his wife Lisa have one daughter, Madeline.
