Kenny Creehan was named the head baseball coach at Penn State Greater Allegheny on September 7th 2018 and takes over a program that has a history of success in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference. Creehan has head coaching experience at almost every level of NCAA and has seen success in a majority of his endeavors. Creehan began his collegiate career in 1989 at Allegheny College. In his first season with the Gaotrs, Creehan led them to the NCAA Division III Regional tournament for the first time in school history. Creehan would then make the jump to the NCAA Division I circuit when he went to the Citadel.
This is where he had his first big break through leading his team to the Division I college world series in Omaha. His team was the first ever Military Academy to make it to the Division I World Series. Creehan got a chance to work under legendary Citadel head coach Chal Port and gave him many lessons that he uses in his coaching today. He got his first stint as a head coach a couple years later when he took over as head baseball coach at Lincoln Memorial College. Over his four years as head coach at Lincoln Memorial, Creehan’s teams broke over 60 school records and Creehan won over 100 games as manager over those four seasons. Creehan would remain in the college circuit returning to Allegheny College, the place where his coaching career started, as an assistant for several seasons.
He then turned his attention to training the next generation of college players when he turned to the AAU Circuit. Along with his head coaching duties at PSUGA, Creehan is also the head coach at Team All-American, which is a top AAU program. During his tenure, his teams have won over 400 games and been in 50 different championship events. His proudest moment, is leading his 16-year old team to two seperate National Championship events.
Creehan is excited about the opportunities that present themselves at PSUGA. and he is ready to lead this group of men as they try to continue the winning tradition set forth before them.
“There are so many people that are making PSUGA an exciting place to grow,” said Creehan. “The administration is full of passion and our Director of Athletics, Korie Morton-Rozier, is eager to win which makes me want to be a part of something special.”
Creehan is working with a team of 10 returners from last year’s PSUAC Playoff team. PSUGA made the playoffs in five of the last nine seasons winning four championships over that span. Creehan is excited to work with this year’s team and keep them on their winning track.
“I am very excited to get going here at PSUGA and get the ball rolling with all the returning players and getting our system in place,” said Creehan. “The plan is already put in motion for recruiting and the outpouring of high school players calling us asking if they can come play here has been fabulous.”
Kenny, his wife Amy and their three children Brent (17), Briauna (13) and McKenzie (10) reside in Irwin, PA.
