University of New Haven: Assistant Baseball Coach (2000–2002)

Prior to working with the Royals and the Pirates, Patrick returned to his undergraduate Alma Mata as an assistant coach for University of New Haven. As a UNH graduate he earned a B.S. degree in Business Administration, and played under legendary head coach Frank “Porky” Vieira from 1984-1986. His responsibilities from 2000–2002 included: national recruiting, practice implementation, team defense, and base running. During this two year period UNH compiled a 51–22 record.

Norwalk Community College: Associate Head Baseball Coach (1997–2000)

Success at the collegiate level began early for Patrick in is capacity as the Associate Head Baseball Coach at Norwalk Community Technical College and as a member of UNH’s nationally ranked teams in the early 80’s. During his three years at NCTC the program was ranked #1 nationally by the NJCAA (1997-2000). The Panthers compiled an astounding 142–15 record during that three year span. The crowning moment came when Patrick and the Panthers captured the 1998 NJCAA National Championship. The 1999 season saw the team finish with a 50-2 record including an amazing 50 straight wins. Even though a second national championship eluded them, the NCTC program had five players selected in the 1999 MLB draft. The highest selection in the third round was Baltimore Orioles LHP Eric Bedard. Patrick has coached and developed more than twenty additional players that have been MLB draft picks or have signed professional baseball contracts.

As the Associate Head Coach at NCTC, Patrick was also responsible for a national recruiting effort, on field coaching duties included work with infielders, outfielders, catchers, hitters and base runners, enforcing athletic policies, and conduct governing athletics and academics. Patrick also provided guidance and counseling for student/athletes in the areas of academics, financial aid, and admissions.
