Rick will be entering his first season as a member of the Bells coaching staff. His primary role will be to work with the Bells' hitters and assist with the infielders and outfielders. Teegarden currently serves as a graduate assistant at Seattle University. This will be his first year at Seattle University, having previously served as the associate head coach at Shoreline Community College. Shoreline’s offense showed great improvement under Rick’s guidance, moving from the bottom of the NWAC in most major offense categories to the top during his first year. Teegarden also had a stint as an undergraduate assistant at the University of Washington.
Originally from Bellevue, Wash., Teegarden played three years of baseball at Sammamish High School. During his senior year, he helped lead the Totems to the State Tournament. Although Teegarden’s playing career was cut short due to injury, he has been coaching at the college level for the last six years. Rick earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from the University of Washington and is currently working on a Master’s Degree in Education with an emphasis in Sports Administration.
