McCormack has led the Owls to 131 victories in his first four seasons, including 69-47 (.595) in Sun Belt Conference contests. That is the top winning percentage during that span. McCormack has led FAU to a pair of Sun Belt Conference regular season titles and one NCAA Regional appearance.

Prior to becoming head coach in 2009, McCormack was an assistant at FAU since 1991. He was associate head coach for 11 years. The Owls have posted 14 consecutive winning seasons. FAU has had 89 players reach professional baseball during McCormack’s tenure, including a pair currently in the major leagues.
