Biography: Thomas College Baseball Coach Greg King is entering his 17th season at the helm for the Terriers.

King, a native of Benton, Maine graduated from the University of Maine in 1991, with a bachelor's in secondary education. In 1993, King earned his master's from the University of Maine in health, physical education and recreation and completed his doctorate at the United States Sports Academy in 2011.

Hired in 1996, King faced the difficult task of resurrecting a baseball program that had been absent from the College for 10 years. Under Coach King's guidance, the Terriers doubled their win total for three consecutive seasons. After winning only two games in 1997, the Terriers won four games in 1998, eight games in 1999 and 17 games during the 2000 season.

Following the 1999 and 2000 seasons, Coach King was named the Maine Athletic Conference Coach of the Year. After only five seasons, King led the Terriers to the NAIA New England Championship. From 2001 to 2005 he led the Terriers to four consecutive appearances in the conference championship, winning three out of four. The most recent conference championship came in 2004 when the Terriers won the 2004 North Atlantic Conference baseball championship. King also won his 100th game during the 2005 baseball season.

In 2006 and 2011, King was named the NAC Coach of the Year.  In 2006 he led the Terriers to a 7-5 conference record and the fourth seed in the playoffs.  In 2011 he led the Terriers to a 9-7 conference record and the third seed in the playoffs. 

While at UMaine, King played for legendary coach Dr. John Winkin, earning three letters. During his senior year, he was a member of the 1991 Black Bear team that finished the season with a 48-18 record and was ranked 17th in the country. Upon graduation, King pursued his master's and served as an assistant coach at UMaine for three seasons.

For four summers, King served as the head coach for the Hyannis Mets of the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball league, leading them to a playoff appearance in 2003. King also served as an assistant coach with the Harwich Mariners in 1994 and 2011 where he was a part of the 2011 Cape Cod League championship team.  He also was the assistant coach at the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox in 1995, the Cotuit Ketleers in 2003 and the Bangor Blue Ox Professional Baseball Club in 1997.

King has been an instructor at a number of sports clinics, including the Thomas Baseball Camp, the University of Maine Baseball Camp, the American Collegiate Baseball Academy and the Dale Plummer Professional Baseball Experience.
