Bryan Adamski enters his sixth season at the helm of the Trinity College baseball program heading into the 2018-19 academic year after guiding the Bantams to an 18-15 record and a three-way tie for second in the East Division of the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) last spring. The Bantams finished the season strong, winning four of their final six games, highlighted by a 7-6 victory over in-state NESCAC West rival Wesleyan University on May 5. Trinity scored 40 runs in its final six games of the season to put the season total at 193 (T4th in NESCAC). The team finished second in the league with 65 stolen bases, second in triples (17), second in home runs (16), fourth in RBIs (172), third in OBP (.386), and second in slugging percentage (.416). Trinity's pitching staff also finished second in the conference in ERA (4.40) and gave up the second fewest hits to opponents (276). During the 2018 season, Adamski coached 2018 All-New England Region and 2018 All-NESCAC shortstop Matt Koperniak, as well as All-NESCAC second baseman Cooper Mooney. 

In 2017-18, Adamski led the squad to its highest win total since the spring of 2012. Trinity posted a 22-14 record while three Bantams were named to the NESCAC All-Conference Teams, including NESCAC Co-Rookie of the Year Alex Rodriguez, a first-year catcher. In 2016, Adamski led the Bantams to a runner-up finish in the NESCAC Championship Tournament after the squad had posted a 7-5 record in NESCAC East Division play. During that season, Adamski mentored NESCAC Defensive Player of the Year Scott Cullinane behind the plate and the Bantams boasted three All-NESCAC honorees as well. In his five seasons as head coach, Adamski has mentored 10 All-NESCAC selections and 32 NESCAC All-Academic Team selections.  

Adamski graduated from Massachusetts in 2007 with bachelor's degrees in English and journalism, and holds a master's degree from Springfield College in sport management.  He finished his collegiate playing career as the all-time save leader in UMass baseball history.  Adamski, who also has two years of head coaching experience with the North Adams Steeplecats in the New England Collegiate Baseball League, served as both the pitching and hitting coach during his tenure at Amherst.  He played a pivotal role in all aspects of the Amherst program, as the Lord Jeffs posted a 112-57 record (.663) in his five seasons with four consecutive post-season appearances.  He helped Amherst win a College-record 27 games in 2013, and coached the NESCAC Pitcher, Defensive Player, and Rookie of the Year that spring.  In his final year as the Amherst hitting coach in 2010, Adamski's hitters posted a College-record batting average of .349, and the Lord Jeff pitching staff set a new team record for ERA (3.17) with Adamski as their pitching coach in 2013. In 2012, the Steeplecats were 22-20 and qualified for the post-season in Adamski's first season after a last place finish the previous year.  He also coached prior to North Adams with the NECBL's Holyoke Blue Sox. Adamski resides in Southwick, Mass. with his wife, Stephanie, and their son, Kace.
