After two successful seasons as an assistant coach at Long Beach State, Greg Bergeron has been promoted to Associate Head Coach for the Dirtbags.
LONG BEACH, Calif. - After two successful seasons as an assistant coach on Troy Buckley’s staff, Long Beach State assistant coach Greg Bergeron has been promoted to Associate Head Coach. Bergeron has overseen the Dirtbags offense in his two years at the Beach, helping LBSU to a pair of postseason berths, including a Big West championship and a Super Regional in 2017.
“Greg is very deserving of this title change as this program has grown and made excellent strides since his arrival two years ago,” said Dirtbags head coach Troy Buckley. “I am excited for the program, university, community and Dirtbag Nation as we maintain continuity, which will lead to our daily success.”
Bergeron is entering his third season in Long Beach, where he has also spearheaded LBSU’s recruiting efforts. The Dirtbags have gone 80-42-1 in two seasons with Bergeron on staff, compiling the program’s best record over a two-year period since 2003-04.
“I am very excited about this opportunity,” Bergeron said of his promotion to Associate Head Coach. “To be given this title is an honor, but it will not change the way I approach this job. I am honored that Coach Buckley and (LBSU Athletic Director) Andy Fee believe in the work I’m doing, and I’m looking forward to the future as we continue to build on the great tradition of Dirtbag Baseball.”
Spending over two decades as a coach, Bergeron has made stops at Loyola Marymount, Cerritos College, El Camino College, UC Irvine, Cal State Fullerton and Tennessee. Bergeron joined Buckley’s staff for the 2016 season after serving as the Associate Head Coach with the Volunteers.
Bergeron is a native of Cerritos, Calif. and played collegiate baseball at Cerritos College, Cal State Dominguez Hills and LMU.
The Dirtbags begin the 2018 season on Feb. 16 against Saint Mary’s, as the reigning Big West champions look to make a third straight trip to the postseason.
