A coach at Wooster High School from 1995-2001, Dan Wyand is now in his 16th season within the college ranks. His duties at The College of Wooster are centered around working with the hitters, coaching the outfielders, and aligning the defense.
Wyand experienced working with collegiate-level players previously, as he coached 16 players with the Generals who went on to play college ball, including four at Wooster – Ben Byo, Ryan Kilpatrick, pitcher Ben Maibach, a two-time all-conference honoree, and Judd Orr.
While competing in the challenging Federal League, Wyand helped Wooster teams set multiple school records for hitting and base running. In fact, the Generals, as a team, never batted below .300. The 1998 squad was the best he worked with, as it advanced all the way to the state semifinals – a first in Wooster High School history.
Active in youth camps in northeast Ohio as well, Wyand has coached in two junior all-star games held at the Cleveland Indians’ Progressive Field.
A 1974 graduate of East Liverpool High School, Wyand is the owner of two businesses, one located in Lexington, Ohio, and the other in Loudonville, Ohio.
Personally, he and his wife, Cathy, live in Wooster, and have two grown children – Christina (40) and Sean (35).
