Matt Vaughn Head Coach

With over 20 years of experience as a player and member of the coaching staff at UC Davis, Matt Vaughn was named head coach of the Aggies in August 2011.

Vaughn completed his third season at the helm of his alma mater and 22nd overall with the program in 2014.

The former pitching coach proved he could work just as well with hitters and the Aggies boasted the third best batting average in the Big West, hitting .283 over 56 games. UC Davis also had the third best on-base percentage (.359) and the third most doubles (95) in the conference and ranked No. 4 in runs scored (297). Despite all the firepower at the plate, Vaughn also instilled a great sense of patience in his hitters, as the Aggies struck out just 271 times, the fewest in the league.

Tony Schifano Assistant Coach

In 2008, former Aggie great Tony Schifano returned to his alma mater following a 10-year professional baseball career. Now in his eighth season, Schifano's primary duties include coaching infielders and serving as the third base coach during games. He also assists with baserunning, hitting and recruiting.

Brett Lindgren Assistant Coach

Formerly a volunteer assistant at Cal State Fullerton and Santa Clara, Brett Lindgren joined the UC Davis baseball staff in a similar role prior to the 2012 season. He has since been elevated to the role of assistant coach beginning in 2013 and enters his fourth season on staff.

Originally from Santa Cruz, Calif., Lindgren served five years with the Cal State Fullerton baseball program as a facilities manager and volunteer assistant. During that span, Cal State Fullerton won three Big West Conference titles and made three trips to the College World Series. He then moved closer to his hometown to coach at Santa Clara for one season.

Lloyd Acosta Assistant Coach

Acosta returns to his alma mater for the second year of his second stint on the Aggie staff after spending five years as an assistant coach at Saint Mary's, helping manage the Gaels' offense, working with the infielders, and coordinating the program's recruiting efforts.

Prior to that, Acosta spent six seasons as an assistant with the Aggies from 2002-07 as the program's recruiting coordinator and working with the defense, improving the team's fielding percentage in every season. UC Davis led the nation with a .970 fielding percentage in 2003 as the Aggies advanced to the NCAA Division II College World Series, finishing third.
