Year: 1st season
As the head baseball coach at the NCAA (Alderson Broaddus College, Ohio Northern University), NAIA
(York College), and NJCAA (Southeastern CC, College of The Albemarle) levels, Milan Rasic has earned a
career record of 331-267-3 (.553). He has compiled a mark of 220-162-3 (.575) at four-year institutions,
with a junior college standing of 111-105 (.513).
 
A turnaround specialist, the combined win percentage of the baseball programs Rasic inherited the year
prior to his arrival, is .352. The combined win percentage during his first season at new schools, is .486.
He has molded unproven and underachieving programs, and turned them into record setting clubs.
 
After more than two decades as a baseball head / assistant coach, Rasic transitioned to college softball
as the head coach at BSC in 2019. He assumed duties after the start of the academic year, inheriting a
roster comprised mostly of first and second year players. The program generated an immediate
turnaround, earning 15 victories (15-17, .468), and narrowly missing what would have been just the
second winning season for the program as a NCAA-II member. BSC softball had combined to 15 games
over the previous four seasons (2015-2018). The team ranked within the top ten in three separate
NCAA-II Softball Offensive Categories (batting average, on base percentage, scoring), and realized a .571
win percentage against NCAA-II competition.
 
Prior to BSC, Rasic’s most recent coaching stint included five years as a head coach at two NJCAA Region
X colleges. For four seasons, Rasic led the program at College of the Albemarle. During the spring of
2015, the college’s board of trustees recommended, and approved the suspension of intercollegiate
athletics at COA, citing financial reasons. Despite learning the status of the program within the season,
the players held steadfast in pursuit of their goals, earning the number one seed for the NJCAA-III,
Region X tournament. The program concluded the season at 23-17 (.575), and a tournament runner-up
finish. The roster featured 16 student-athletes who possessed a cumulative grade point average of 3.0,
or higher.
 
COA competed without the incentive of athletic-related financial aid, and no on-campus facility. During
his four years at the northeastern North Carolina school, Rasic compiled a record of 89-80 (.526). The
Dolphins earned 22 victories against NJCAA scholarship programs. Twenty-eight players advanced their
playing careers to four-year institutions.
 
Rasic’s coaching stints also include a successful four-year tenure at another West Virginia school. From
2006-2009, he served as the head coach at Alderson Broaddus College (now University). The program
compiled a record of 103-53 (.656), and realized the first four overall winning seasons in Battlers’
baseball history. His first season culminated with an above .500 record, just one year removed from the
program’s 9-32 mark. A-B achieved the second highest overall winning percentage of all WVIAC baseball
schools from 2006-2009.
 
Rasic realized his first head coaching position, and initial positive program building experience came at
York College of Nebraska. In the fall of 1999, he took over a team just removed from a 15-41 season.
The 2000 team won 29 games, and gained the first .500 season, as a NAIA member playing school.
His experience as a college assistant includes working for three head coaches, who combined, have
earned more that 2,000 career victories, qualified for 12 World Series’ appearances, and won two
national championships.

professor of physical education at two previous colleges. Rasic has also gained experience in a college
setting as an academic advisor, admissions counselor, intramurals coordinator, and facilities manager.

University, located in Alpine, Texas.
