Following a four-year playing career with LMU that ended in 2016, Ryan Erickson recently completed his first season on the coaching staff with the Lions in 2017. Erickson, entering his second season on staff in 2018, will serve as the Director of Baseball Operations.

In his first season on the LMU staff, Erickson helped guide the 2017 squad to a 38-18 overall record and a 20-7 mark in the WCC to earn a share of the West Coast Conference Championship and a berth into the WCC Championship Tournament. The 38 wins are tied for sixth-most in LMU history, and are the most since posting 40 in 2000. LMU's .679 winning percentage is fourth-best in LMU history, and the best mark since 1990's .726 percentage. LMU lost just one weekend series en route to capturing its first WCC title since 200, finishing the year 11-1-1 in weekend sets. The Lions also dropped consecutive games just three times in 2017, and 13 of its 18 losses came by three runs or less. LMU featured seven All-WCC selections in 2017, including position players Phil Caulfield and Jamey Smart on the first team, Jimmy Hill on the second team, Spencer Erdman on the honorable mention team, and Cooper Uhl on the All-Freshman squad.

Erickson is responsible for helping guide LMU's hitters, infielders and outfielders as part of the coaching staff. This will also be his second year functioning as the bullpen coach. During his first year on staff, Erickson served as the Vice President of LMU Baseball Academy. In this role, Erickson served in tandem with Matt Florer as the coaching staff for three different club baseball teams and over 60 kids.

Erickson also worked as a partner for LMU Baseball Academy following his playing career, hosting a Little League outreach camp in September 2016 for Del Rey Little League and hosting various hitting, pitching and defensive youth clinics at LMU.

This summer, Erickson will serve as an assistant coach for the Orleans Firebirds in the Cape Cod Summer Baseball League.

Over four years in a Lion uniform, Erickson appeared in 75 games, starting 44. The native of Manhattan Beach, Calif. hit .260 for his career, collecting 26 runs scored, 14 doubles, two triples, a homer and 14 RBI.

Prior to attending LMU, Erickson was a 2012 graduate of Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach, Calif. where he was a two-year varsity letterwinner for head coach Cass Olson. As a prep player, he was named Defensive MVP and a team captain as a senior while hitting .245 with 16 runs scored in his final year.

Erickson graduated from LMU in 2016 with a degree in English.
