Head Coach Fairfield University
Before assuming the reins as head coach in the 1985 season, Slosar was an assistant coach for the Stags for eight years. Since coming to Fairfield in 1975, Slosar has helped coach the Stags to a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) championship, four MAAC South titles, six ECAC playoff appearances and twelve 20-win seasons.
In his final season as a player for the University of Connecticut, he helped the Huskies to a fifth- place finish in the 1972 College World Series in Omaha, Neb., by hitting .400 in the College World Series. He was named to the Sporting News Honorable Mention All-American squad. Slosar finished with a career .346 batting average for the Huskies. After his playing days in Storrs, Conn., Slosar spent one year in the New York Mets farm system. In high school, he helped Stratford High School to a state championship in 1968, and was inducted into its Athletic Hall of Fame in 1999.
In his first season as the Stags skipper in 1985, he led Fairfield to a 20-15-1 record, the school's third 20-win season. After a rebuilding period, the Stags earned their first MAAC South Championship in 1991, finishing with a 20-17-2 record. Along the way, Slosar picked up the MAAC Coach of the Year in 1991, and over the next two seasons he guided the Stags to a pair of 20-win seasons and a MAAC South Title, in 1993.
