One of the many Brandeis baseball alumni who has joined the coaching ranks, Brian Lambert is in his 15th campaign in his alma mater's dugout. Lambert served as head coach at Nichols College for two seasons in 2004 and 2005.
Lambert arrived at Brandeis as a freshman in 1995 and was an everyday starter in the outfield. His last three seasons, he was the centerfielder. During his four-year career, he led Brandeis to four post-season appearances, including an NCAA berth the last three seasons. As a senior captain, he led Brandeis to a then school record 29 wins. The lead-off hitter, he hit .376 with four home runs, 11 doubles, 25 RBI, 48 runs scored and 10 stolen bases as a senior. Lambert set a school single season record with 44 walks as a junior and has a career total of 105, second on the all-time list. Also that year, he tied the school record for runs with 44, and topped that with 48 last season. An outstanding fielder, he committed only two errors in 131 career games and stole a total of 42 bases.
A native of Walpole, Mass., he serves as the third base coach and oversees recruiting, summer team placement, ordering equipment and developing the team’s strength program.
In 2012, Lambert was presented with the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association's prestigious Kevin Burr Assistant Coach Award, which is presented annually to an active New England assistant coach who exhibits the integrity and dedication to the game of college baseball that Coach Burr demonstrated throughout his career.
