Paul Svagdis is currently the head baseball coach for APU as well as an assistant professor in the department of physical education. He is an East Coast native with a heavy accent and a purely east coast vocabulary, and he loves baseball every bit as much as a west coast guy. His enthusiasm and love for the game are indeed contagious. He's proven he can take a program that's in shambles and rebuild it into a national contender. He's now out to prove he can take a perpetual winner to the next level. He has visions of some day in the near future returning Azusa Pacific to the NAIA World Series-a place no Cougar team has been since 1984. He is an active member of COIN (Coach of Influence), the American Football Coaches Association, and the American Baseball Coaches Association.
