Griffin Mazur

Position: Assistant Coach

Griffin Mazur is in his second year with the Tiger program and first as an assistant coach in 2024 after serving as the volunteer assistant coach in 2023. Mazur (pronounced MAY-zuhr), who was named to the staff on June 27, 2022 and works with the catchers, played the 2021 season at Michigan under Bakich after he transferred from UC Irvine, where he was a player from 2016-20.

In his first season in Tigertown in 2023, Mazur coached the Tigers to the league championship by going 4-0 in the ACC Tournament at Durham, N.C. It was a big reason they earned the No. 4 national seed in the NCAA Tournament. Clemson went from last place in the ACC in early April with a 2-8 record and finished with a 20-10 league mark, good for second place in the overall standings, thanks in large part to a 17-game winning streak.

The Tigers finished the 2023 season with a 44-19 record, their best mark since 2018, and ranked as high as No. 15 in the nation by Baseball America in the final polls. Clemson hit .306, 22nd highest in the nation, with a .400 on-base percentage in 2023, its best marks since 2011, and totaled 103 steals, most by Clemson since 2013. The Tigers set a school record for fielding percentage (.977) as well.

Caden Grice, the winner of the 2023 John Olerud Two-Way Player-of-the-Year Award, and Billy Amick earned first-team All-America honors. Grice, who was the No. 64 overall pick of the 2023 MLB draft, became the first Tiger in history to either lead the team or tie for the team lead in wins and homers in a season. Amick and Cam Cannarella, the 2023 ACC Freshman-of-the-Year, were First-Team All-ACC selections. Amick (.413) became the first Tiger since Khalil Greene (.470) in 2002 to hit .400 in a season. Cannarella was named a first-team freshman All-American and led the ACC in batting average (.408) in conference games. Catcher Cooper Ingle, who was a fourth-round draft pick in 2023, earned Third-Team All-ACC honors as well.

Mazur worked as a program assistant at Michigan during the 2022 season after playing 44 games in his one season as a player at Michigan in 2021. He hit .247 with six homers, eight doubles, 33 RBIs and 31 runs, as he was a Second-Team All-Big Ten Conference catcher.

Mazur, who was voted team captain in 2021, also was named a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and was a All-Big Ten Academic selection.

In his four active seasons (2016,18-20) at UC Irvine, he played 110 games (55 starts).

After his college career, he played one season (2021) and 17 games with Tri-City (A+) in the Angels organization.

Mazur graduated from UC Irvine in 2020 with two degrees, one in criminology, law & society and one in education sciences. He also received a master’s degree in sport management from Michigan in 2021.

He was born Griffin Cole Mazur on April 8, 1997 in Mission Viejo, Calif. and is a native of Moorpark, Calif. Mazur is married to Amanda Lorenz.
