Adrian Blewitt was named the head coach of the Army West Point Black Knights in December 2017. Blewitt came to West Point following a five-year stint at the helm of Arkansas Little Rock, where he turned around a struggling program. He guided the Trojans to five consecutive Sun Belt Tournament berths, four consecutive winning seasons and increased the program’s RPI by over 200 spots in four years. Little Rock had not accomplished a winning season in the 25 years prior to Blewitt’s arrival. Off the pitch, the team has seen success with the Sun Belt Conference Team Academic Award in two of his five years. He was hired by the Trojans in December of 2012 after spending a brief time at UNC Greensboro as an assistant. Blewitt immediately went to work, doubling Little Rock’s win total from 2012 to 2013, reaching the Sun Belt Conference Tournament for the first time since 2009. He has compiled 245 total collegiate wins both on the men’s and women’s side throughout his 20 years of coaching experience. Blewitt has an overall women’s record of 113-66-15, with a 4-1-3 postseason NCAA Tournament mark.
