John Meil joined the Retriever staff in January 2012.
A veteran of the travel and club softball circuit, Meil comes to UMBC after spending one year in Owings Mills at Division III Stevenson University, where he worked primarily with the pitchers and catchers.
At UMBC, Meil will serve in a similar role, in addition to acting as the dugout and bullpen coach during games. Meil will also assist in recruiting and scouting for the Retrievers.
"John will be vital to the success of our rotation," head coach Joe French said. "His knowledge of the game and more specifically, pitching, will help our staff become proficient in all of their pitches."
