COACHING STAFF

HEAD COACH TED MAHAN Ted Mahan is in his third season as the head baseball coach at Olivet College. Prior to joining the Olivet staff, Mahan served as head baseball coach at Michigan State University (MSU) from 1996-2005. His 256 career wins rank fourth on MSU’s all-time list. Two of Mahan’s MSU ballclubs surpassed the 30-win plateau. In 2004, Mahan led the Spartans to a 33-26 overall record, including a third-place finish in the Big Ten at 19-13. The 19 conference wins marked a single-season school record. His 2002 team went 38-19 overall and was third in the Big Ten at 16-12. The 38 victories marked the second-best single-season total in school history. During his stint as head coach, Mahan saw seven of his players earn first-team All-Big Ten honors. He also helped develop five players who were named to the Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America Team. In addition, nearly 60 of his Spartan players signed professional baseball contracts. His players were also successful in the classroom, with 28 student-athletes earning Academic All-Big Ten honors. Prior to being named head coach at MSU, he served as a Spartan assistant coach for four years (1992-95) under Tom Smith. He also coached five years (1987-91) at the University of Michigan (U of M), where he served as a graduate assistant and full-time assistant.

Before entering the collegiate coaching ranks, Mahan served as head coach at Davison High School for five years (1983-87), where he compiled an overall record of 127-56 (.694) and earned three conference championships and one district title. He also spent seven years as the head coach of the Grossi Connie Mack Baseball Club in Flint, where he posted a record of 257-98 (.724). Mahan was a four-year letterwinner as a catcher at Michigan from 1974-77, where he helped the Wolverines win back-to-back Big Ten championships in 1975 and 1976. He played in three straight NCAA Tournaments, earning a spot on the 1975 NCAA All-Mideast Region Team. Mahan was named third-team All-Big Ten three times and shared team Most Valuable Player honors with Rick Leach in 1977. Four former assistant coaches or players under Mahan are current head or assistant coaches in college baseball. They are Cory Mee (head coach at University of Toledo), Oliver Wolcott (assistant coach at Toledo), John Musachio (head coach at Oakland University) and Tom Hager (head coach at Jamestown (N.D.) College). Mahan earned a bachelor’s degree (1977) and master’s degree (1991) from the U of M. His family includes wife, Jayne, and two children, Drew and Jillian.

ASSISTANT COACHES KOREY HEPPEARD AND DREW MAHAN Korey Heppeard is in his third season as an assistant baseball coach. Heppeard assists Mahan with the varsity team and serves as the head junior varsity coach. Heppeard earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Malone (Ohio) College in 2006. A lefthanded pitcher for the Pioneers, he earned four varsity letters. In 2005, Heppeard Korey Heppeard earned National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) All-East Region, NCCAA East Region Pitcher of the Year and All-American Mideast Conference (AMC) North honors. As a senior in 2006, Heppeard won two games for the Pioneers as they captured the NCCAA national championship. Among the honors he received were NCCAA All-Tournament Team, NCCAA Tournament MVP, NCCAA All-East Region and All-AMC North. He posted an 8-2 record and 4.29 ERA in 77.2 innings pitched. For his career, Heppeard had a 24-9 record and led his team in wins and winning percentage each of his last three years. His career ERA was 4.16. A native of Van Wert, Ohio, Heppeard was a graduate assistant at Malone from August 2006 to January 2007.

Drew Mahan begins his first season as an assistant baseball coach. Mahan began his collegiate career at MSU, where he played for his dad and earned a varsity letter. He pitched in 25 games, while recording a 4.88 ERA in 24 innings. Mahan also struck out 29 batters. Upon his dad’s departure from MSU, Drew Mahan Mahan transferred to Western Michigan University (WMU) for his final three years of college.

Now Open! The Cutler Event Center

Thanks to the generosity of Dave Cutler, a 1965 Olivet alumnus, The Olivet College Cutler Event Center is now open. Cutler contributed two donations totaling $4.3 million toward the $5.1 million facility. According to Cutler, his support of the center was given in recognition of Olivet’s 1961 football team. That year, he was the starting quarterback and led the Comets to one of their best overall records in school history at 8-1. “Olivet College is very fortunate to have an alumnus such as Dave Cutler, who has taken on a tremendous responsibility by funding the majority of the events center,” said Olivet President Don Tuski. “This is truly a monumental gift that helps Olivet maintain a competitive edge with other colleges and universities. The entire Olivet College community is grateful for Dave Cutler’s outstanding support through the years.” The 44,500-square-foot multipurpose facility was added on to the existing athletic building at the Cutler Athletic Complex. It is being used by the college and community for activities ranging from athletic events to

commencement exercises, student events, guest speakers, concerts and conferences. The new facility includes a fitness center, 100-meter track, locker rooms, coaches’ offices and wrestling room. Olivet’s men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and wrestling programs use the facility for practices and competition. In addition, the softball and baseball teams can use the batting cages for extra practice. All of the college’s 18 NCAA Division III athletic programs use the center for off-season workouts and conditioning. A native of DeWitt, Cutler is a noted software engineer and designer with Microsoft and holds more than 20 patents. After arriving at Microsoft in 1988, he launched the Windows NT group and has since led the development of three major releases of the product. In addition to leading the Windows 2000 team, Cutler contributed to the architecture of all parts of the system. In recognition of his significant contributions to the field, Cutler was awarded membership in the National Academy of Engineering in 1993.
