Ryan Mummert enters his 5th season as Head Coach of the Titans baseball program. In 4 years as the Head Coach at TCC, Mummert has led the Titans to an overall record of 128-53 and playoff appearances in all 4 years. Since taking over the Head position, he has helped 41 players move on to 4-year schools, with 22 playing at the Division I level. TCC has improved every year with Mummert at the helm and the program has taken a significant jump over the past couple years to national recognition.

The 2014 season turned out to to be the best in Program history. The Titans finished the season with a 39-8 record, best in the NWAACC, and earned a 3rd place finish at the NWAACC Tournament. The 39 wins set another school record breaking the previous mark established the year before and was the first time in the history of the program of 30+ wins 3 seasons in a row. TCC produced the top pitching staff in the NWAACC last year with a 2.37 ERA, as well as leading the NWAACC in WHIP, Walks and Shutouts. Mummert moved 10 players on to 4-year universities and sent 6 players to Division I schools, pushing the total to 20 Division 1 players over the last 3 years.

In 2013, Mummert led the Titans to a 35-16 record and earned a 5th place finish at the NWAACC Tournament. The 35 wins at the time was a new school record and was only the second time in the history of the program of 30+ wins in back to back seasons. TCC finished tops in the West Region in hitting, led by the NWAACC batting champion Jordon Woodring. Mummert helped 13 players move on to 4-year universities and sent 9 players to Division I schools, the most in the NWAACC that year as well as the most in program history in any single year.

TCC finished 30-13 in 2012 and made the Playoffs for the 8th consecutive year. They were ranked in the top 20 on the West Coast and top 50 nationally at moments throughout the season for the 1st time in program history. Mummert sent all 11 Sophomores on to 4-year universities, including 5 going on to play Division I baseball. Under Mummert the Titans finished tops in the West Region in pitching and 2nd in hitting as well as in the top 4 in the NWAACC in both categories.

Before taking over the Head position, Mummert was an Assistant at TCC where he coordinated the offense, worked with infielders, manned the 3rd base coaching box, and was a tireless recruiter for the Titans. In his first season at Tacoma, he helped the Titans get back to the NWAACC Tournament for the first time since 2006.

Mummert joined Tacoma from Midland College in Midland, TX, where he spent 3 years as an Assistant Coach on David Coleman's staff. He coached infielders and hitters and other duties included recruiting, field maintenance on Christensen Stadium and he also started the first ever Baseball Camps in the history of the program. At Midland, Mummert helped lead the Chaparrals to a 101-69 record and two NJCAA Regional Playoffs Berths. He coached 38 players that went on to 4-year universities, including 18 to Division I. Also 7 former players have moved on to play professional baseball.

Mummert has also had coaching stints at St. Martin’s University, Sehome High School and in the West Coast Baseball League with the Bellingham Bell's.

Mummert graduated from Kennedy High School in Seattle where he led the Lancers Baseball team to 1998 State Runner-Up and 1999 State Champions.

After high school, Mummert played at Bellevue Community College, where in 2001, he helped the team set a NWAACC record for the most consecutive playoff appearances. Mummert was also named All-North Division Infielder and team captain. Mummert graduated with a degree in Sports Psychology from Western Washington University in 2004.
