# Mike Huling
Hitting Coach
1st Season
Mike Huling joins the Holy Cross baseball coaching staff in the 2014-15 season for his first year at the school. He will be responsible for coaching the hitting and outfield for the Saints. 
Huling comes to Holy Cross from Bowling Green State University in the Mid-American Conference where he served as a baseball assistant coach for two years. At BGSU, Huling mentored four All-MAC selections and been part of the 2013 Mid-American Conference Tournament champion and NCAA Regional team. 
Serving as the primary hitting coach for the majority of the 2014 season, the Falcon offense saw a transformation during the second half of the 2014 season, under the tutelage of Huling. The Falcons raised their season batting average from .266 to .286 under Huling, while increasing offensive productivity, as well.
Most impressive was Bowling Green’s knack for stealing bases during the second half of the season. The Falcons, after stealing just 20 bases through the first 22 games of the season, stole 56 bases over the final 30 games (19-11 record).
Prior to his time at Bowling Green, Huling coached for one season at Mishawaka High School as the varsity assistant coach. He also coached the 16U Michiana Scrappers for two seasons.
Huling graduated in 2011 from the University of Southern Indiana, where he played for two seasons. His 2010 team at USI won the NCAA Division II National Championship. In his two seasons, Huling batted .342. In 2010, the year USI claimed the National Championship, Huling led the team with a .387 batting average with 49 RBI. Prior to his time at USI, Huling also played at Glen Oaks Community College, where he batted .374.
