Dan Tischler reunited with his former college coach Brett Boretti and joined the Columbia baseball staff as an assistant coach in June 2012.

A native New Yorker, Tischler comes home to Columbia after spending the previous two years as an assistant coach at Cornell. In 2012, he helped guide the Big Red to a program record for wins (31), Ivy League wins (14) and the program’s first Ivy League championship since 1976.

At Cornell, Tischler was the team’s first base coach and a key recruiter at a number of Ivy League camps and other showcases. He assisted with daily practices, helped work with the hitters and was primarily responsible for base running instruction.

Prior to his stint at Cornell, Tischler was the pitching coach at Swarthmore (Pa.) for two seasons. In 2010, the Garnet had its first 20-win season in 25 years and made the Centennial Conference tournament for the first time in program history.
