Jake Mahon

Assistant Coach

Mahon is in his third year as an assistant baseball coach at UE Athletics.

He was named an assistant coach on June 22, 2015. Mahon was a four-year starter for the Purple Aces from 2011-14 and served as the team’s volunteer assistant coach for the 2015 campaign.

In his time with the Aces, he’s helped guide the program to new heights offensively, highlighted in 2016 by an offense that slugged 51 home runs, which was the most for a UE team since the NCAA introduced new bat standards in 2011. Every UE player with an official at-bat homered in 2016, and the total of 13 players with a four-bagger was the most for a UE squad since 2001. Three players (Trey Hair, Korbin Williams and Jonathan Ramon) logged 10 homers apiece, tying for the most home runs for an individual UE hitter since Cody Fick hit 19 in 2010.

Hair, Boomer Synek and Josh Jyawook were all named to an all-conference team at the end of the season.

In 2015, he helped coach Kevin Kaczmarski to the highest batting average in the NCAA (.465). He’d earn All-America honors as well as the Joe Carter MVC Player of the Year award.

During his playing days at UE, Mahon saw time at catcher, first base, third base and designated hitter. He posted a .274 career batting average with 29 doubles, 105 runs batted in and a .389 on-base percentage. Mahon hit a career-best .322 during his junior year in 2013. He ended his career in 2014 with a .295 senior season with 35 runs driven in. Mahon was also an All-Missouri Valley Conference First Team selection in 2014.

A native of Plain City, Ohio, Mahon graduated from the University of Evansville in 2014.
