Scott Eul is in his 2nd season as the Minot State University head baseball coach. He was hired in June 2016 and made an immediate impact on the Beavers baseball program.
In 2017, Minot State qualified for the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference tournament for the first time since joining the league. The Beavers tied a school record for wins in a season with 29, going 29-22 on the year including a 23-17 mark in NSIC play.
MSU also won its first postseason game in the program's NCAA Division II history, topping Minnesota Crookston 3-2 at the NSIC Tournament. Eul coached two All-NSIC individuals as Jordan Schulz was named to the first team and Michael Borst was a second-team selection. Schulz added a NSIC Gold Glove Award to his conference honors.
Eul also coached Schulz to the NCBWA All-Central Region Second Team following a stellar senior season.
Overall, Minot State was ranked in the top 5 in 19 statisticaly categories in the NSIC including second in on base percentage (.389), third in slugging percentage (.437) and fourth in batting average (.302). The Beavers were fourth in earned runs average in the league (4.45) and sixth overall in fielding percentage (.962).
Before coming to Minot State, Eul, a native of Rosemount, Minn., spent two seasons helping build St. Cloud State into a national powerhouse and has five seasons of coaching experience from American Legion Baseball, Beach Collegiate League and NCAA Division II level.
He spent the past two seasons as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator and earned his Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Administration at St. Cloud State, helping the Huskies to a 97-15 overall record and to the nation’s No. 1 ranked team in NCAA Division II last season. The Huskies started both 2015 and 2016 23-0 and earned Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Tournament titles in 2015 and 2016 and were the 2015 NSIC regular season champions. SCSU ranked nationally in multiple pitching categories during his coaching career including leading the nation in shutouts and hits allowed in 2015 along with being fourth in DII in ERA.
After a successful playing career at the University of North Dakota where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education, Eul began his collegiate coaching career at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn., where he served two seasons as the pitching coach, recruiting coordinator and strength & conditioning coach.
Along with coaching at SCSU, he was involved in the Beach Collegiate League as the head coach for the Litchfield (S.C) Manowars since 2014, earning league championships the past two seasons along with a runner up finish in three seasons.
Eul will begin his duties immediately and feels the groundwork has been laid to move the baseball program into the next level in the competitive Northern Sun.
