Donegal Fergus
Head Coach Read more Read less

Donegal Fergus was named the ninth head coach of the Lions baseball program on June 24, 2023.

Fergus joins the Lions athletics staff after successful stints at UCSB and with the Minnesota Twins of the MLB.

Fergus’s coaching philosophy is very player-centric, focusing on player empowerment and setting foundations for growth in order to reach that final goal of getting drafted into Major League Baseball.

His experience stretches more than two decades, with success following every stop he has been at. Fergus has made stops at three Division I programs prior to leading the Lions. From 2010-2012, Fergus was the hitting coach at Seattle University where he increased the RedHawks hitting proficiency significantly from year to year. His next DI opportunity came at the University of Washington. During his tenure with the Huskies, the team made three NCAA Tournament appearances and a trip to Omaha, Neb. for the 2018 College World Series. He finally landed in Santa Barbara as an assistant on the Gauchos staff where in 2019, he helped them capture their first Big West Championship since 1958. The 2019 Gauchos also produced the second most MLB draft picks in the country. After a brief hiatus from coaching at the college level, Fergus returned to the Gauchos staff in 2022 to help them to another Big West Championship. His three years in Santa Barbara led to two conference titles, two NCAA Regional trips, two broken school records for homers in a season, and a multitude of offensive improvements.

During his hiatus from the Gauchos, Fergus served as the hitting coordinator for the Twins in which he oversaw all of their minor league hitting staff across MILB. The Twins had seven MLB debuts during his tenure and have transformed into a perennial AL Central contender in recent years. One of his biggest takeaways from being with the Twins was learning the ability to manage large groups of individuals, something he no doubt will utilize on the Bluff.

Fergus also oversaw the Irish National Baseball Team for a pair of seasons in 2018 and 2019, helping them to attain a gold medal and a Top 50 international ranking.

A native of Powers, Ore., Fergus played baseball at Linfield College where he earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and later earned a graduate degree in homeland security from American Military University.

Justin Dedman, Assistant Coach, Loyola Marymount Baseball
Justin Dedman
Recruiting Coordinator Read more Read less

Justin Dedman named as assistant coach in July of 2023 ahead of 2024 baseball season.

Dedman’s baseball experience has taken him across the country, most recently a member of the Missouri Tigers of the Southeastern Conference. Acting as the Director of Player Development, Dedman and the Tigers set program records in homeruns, batting average, slugging percentage and OPS. The Tigers went 30-24 in 2023, with a sweep against College World Series participant Tennessee and a win against CWS semifinalist TCU.

“I am ecstatic to work in LMU’s championship environment with a longtime friend and mentor in Ferg,” said Dedman. “He is an incredible human, genuine leader and true developer of ballplayers. I am deeply appreciative of him and can’t wait to get to know our team and build something truly special together.”
Prior to his time with the Tigers, Dedman was the hitting coach and recruiting coordinator at Miami University (OH). The Redhawks went 105-77 in his four years in Miami, Ohio and oversaw offenses that made significant leaps in production. The Redhawks upgraded batting average, on-base percentage, stolen bases and runs per game.

Dedman has also made stops at Ole Miss and at Division II and NAIA powerhouse Lee University in Tennessee. The Flames went 291-116 during his tenure and made five World Series appearances, finishing as runners-up on two occasions.

“Justin is one of the best offensive minds in the country, but also one of the best people. I’m so lucky to be able to get him to join me here on the Bluff,” said Fergus.

Dedman’s coaching career began in 2006 at his alma mater, Denison University, serving as an assistant for a pair of seasons before assuming the head coaching title in 2009. The Big Red went 48-37 during his tenure and made it to the NCAC Championship in 2008.
Dedman has coached in five World Series, coached 31 draft picks and 10 free agent signings and has recruited 28 picks to boot. Included in those groups is first rounder Sam Bachman, selected ninth overall in 2021.
Dedman was an All-NCAC outfielder at Denison University, helping the Big Red to a No. 5 national ranking during his senior campaign.
Dedman and his wife Brittany have a pair of children, Norah and Maddux, and he enjoys spending time with them, grilling, lifting weights and reading in his spare time.

He earned two victories in the 2012 College World Series closing out the first game in extra Innings against Florida State and also closing out the final game of the National Championship against South Carolina, helping the Wildcats capture the 2012 National Title. He finished his career with a 12-1 record and 15 saves while striking out 93 through 74 Innings pitched.
Mathew also spent two summers playing for the Orleans Firebirds of the Cape Cod Collegiate Summer League in 2012 and 2013. In 2013 he earned Cape Cod East All Star and All-League recognition after posting a 1.35 ERA with 11 Saves and striking out 32 hitters in 20 innings of work. Troupe received the team’s Tom Yankus Pitching Award and the Charles F. Moore, Jr. Award for outstanding performance on and off the field, and the league’s Manny Robello 10th Man Award that season.
After graduating from U of A in 2015, Troupe transferred to Cal State Northridge for his final year of eligibility.

Conner O'Neil
Director of Pitching Development Read more Read less

Conner O’Neil assumes the role of Director of Pitching Development for the upcoming 2024 season, bringing with him a remarkable journey from humble beginnings to a distinguished career in baseball.

Post-high school, Conner’s path to success was anything but conventional. Facing the absence of scholarship offers from four-year institutions, he forged his own destiny by walking on at Central Arizona College. After a standout season, his talent garnered recognition, earning him a scholarship to Cal State Northridge.

During his three-year tenure at CSUN, Conner left an indelible mark on the program. Setting records as the single-season and all-time saves leader (29), boasting the sixth lowest career ERA in school history, and achieving the lowest career ERA in the school’s Division 1 era (2.53), Conner’s impact extended to the fifth most games pitched in school history (78). His accolades include multiple All-Conference honors, 2016 pre-season All-American recognition (NCWBA), and consistent appearances on the Stopper of the Year watch list (NCWBA). The Detroit Tigers drafted him in the 32nd round of the 2016 MLB Draft, but Conner opted to return for his final year, ultimately graduating with honors.

Notably, Conner’s journey continued with a seventh-round selection by the New York Mets in the 2017 MLB Draft, marking the highest draft position for a player from his school since 2006. His pro career spanned five successful years with the New York Mets and Chicago White Sox, during which his gritty character and relentless work ethic became synonymous with his name. Beyond personal achievements, Conner assumed a mentoring role, guiding fellow players through the demanding challenges of professional baseball.

His college coach attested to Conner’s unparalleled consistency, describing him as a value-driven individual with a deep toughness that places him in the 99th percentile of student-athletes. Now, Conner brings this uniquely committed and resilient attitude to LMU, where his firsthand knowledge of the effort, skills, and mindset required for improvement and success will undoubtedly prove invaluable to both staff and players in the program.
