Head Baseball Coach University of MN Gophers
John Anderson is one of the best and most respected college coaches in any sport in the country. He has been involved with University of Minnesota baseball for 45 years, first as a player, then as a student coach, a graduate assistant, an assistant coach and, since 1981, as the Golden Gophers head coach. Building upon the foundation of his mentor, the iconic Dick Siebert, and with a philosophy to prepare his players “for the next 50 years of their lives,” Anderson has made an indelible impact upon the University and the sport. An eight-time Big Ten Coach of the Year and the winningest coach in school history, Anderson has guided the Gophers to winning seasons in 36 of his 38 years at the helm, along with 24 finishes of second or better in the conference (including 11 regular season Big Ten titles), 20 tournament championship games (a conference-best 10 Big Ten tournament titles) and 19 NCAA postseason appearances. He has also mentored 328 Academic All-Big Ten selections, while coaching at least 20 future Major Leaguers.
Anderson has been inducted into four different organizations’ halls of fame: the American Baseball Coaches Association (2008), the University of Minnesota “M” Club (2002), the Minnesota High School Baseball Coaches Association (2013) and Hibbing Community College. In 2019, he received the Herb Carneal Lifetime Achievement Award named after the Minnesota Twins’ longtime radio voice.
