Jon Sjogren, Ed.D. enters his 15th season at the helm of the Tars' baseball program in the 2019-20 school year, and brings with him a career record of 725-657-5 over a 27 year career. 

Sjogren was hired in July 2005 and became just the fifth head coach in the Tars' illustrious history.  Through thirteen seasons with Rollins, he has compiled a record of 366-352-3.  In 2010, Sjogren led the Tars to a 16-8 Sunshine State Conference record to finish second in the conference, the highest finish for Rollins under Sjogren's tenure.  Along with the highest conference finish, Rollins' 41-19 overall mark also tied for the second most wins in program history. 

The 2010 season also marked the first for Sjogren in postseason play while at Rollins.  The Tars went 3-2 with wins over Albany State, Valdosta State, and SSC-foe Florida Southern before falling 7-1 to Southern Arkansas to end their run at the NCAA South Region Tournament title.

In his fourteen seasons with the Rollins Tars, Sjogren has reached three noteworthy milestones with win No. 400 and 500 - both over Eckerd while picking up career win No. 600 against the University of Sciences on March 6, 2014.  On March 10, 2007, he picked up his 400th career victory in an 8-3 win at Alfond Stadium and win No. 500 on April 17, 2010 in a 12-5 rout of Eckerd on the road.



Prior to taking over the Tars' program, Sjogren served as head coach at Bryant University in
Smithfield, R.I., for 15 years.  He built the Bulldogs into one of the premier Division II teams in New England. He compiled a career record of 359-305-2 with Bryant, including a victory over Rollins in the opening game of the 2004 NCAA Division II World Series.  

Sjogren was named the Northeast-10 Coach of the Year four times and ABCA All-Northeast Region Coach of the Year in 2004. His teams have won five Northeast-10 Conference championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 1998, 2002, and 2004, and he has coached five players who earned All-America honors.  For all his success on the playing field at Bryant, Sjogren was inducted into the 2011 Northeast-10 Conference Hall of Fame in the fall of 2011.

Sjogren played for Florida Southern in 1985 before transferring to Bryant for the remainder of his career. With the Bulldogs from 1986-88, he established himself as one of the best players in the history of the program, garnering All-Conference honors all three years while posting a career batting average of .370. He led the Bulldogs to a Northeast-10 Conference title and an NCAA Tournament appearance in 1986. In January 2007, he was inducted into the Bryant University Athletic Hall of Fame.



After graduation, Sjogren spent two years as an assistant coach at the University of Rhode Island before returning to take over the Bryant program in 1990. He earned a master's degree from Rhode Island College in 1993 and a doctorate in Education from Boston University in 1998.
