Cody Kauffman returns for his second season in his second stint as an Assistant Coach (third season overall) with the Franklin Pierce University baseball program in 2017. He assists with all duties pertaining to the operation of the six-time regional champions.
Kauffman makes his first stop on the collegiate coaching circuit with the Ravens after starting at second base for the team's 2010 NCAA East Regional title as a player under head coach Jayson King. Between his stints at Franklin Pierce, he has spent time in support-staff roles in the Chicago Cubs' minor league system and USA Baseball.
Though Kauffman only spent 2009 and 2010 with the Ravens (player bio) after transferring from Massachusetts Amherst, he logged 111 starts in crimson and grey, primarily at second base and left his mark on the program. As a senior in 2010, he hit .311/.387/.436 over 225 at-bats and finished second in the Northeast-10 with 154 assists on his way to a selection to the Rawlings East Region Gold Glove Team. He also finished fourth in the Conference in doubles (17), sixth in hits (70) and seventh in total bases (98). In six games at the NCAA Championship East Regional, he hit 10-for-25 with a pair of doubles to earn selection to the East Regional All-Tournament team. He set a school record by being hit with 17 pitches in a season.
Originally from Blue Bell, Pa., Kauffman received his degree from Franklin Pierce in sports and recreation management in 2012. In July 2012, he was married to former Ravens soccer All-American, Amanda Panaro '12.
