Matt Reynolds was named head baseball coach at Washington College in July 2014. Prior to arriving in Chestertown, Reynolds spent seven seasons as an assistant coach at the United States Naval Academy.

While at Navy, Reynolds focused on hitting as well as infield and outfield defense and also coached third base. He coached a Patriot League Rookie of the Year and a Patriot League Player of the Year and a number of All-Patriot League players and Major League Baseball draft picks. With Reynolds providing hitting instruction, the Midshipmen set a number of offensive team records and top 10 all-time team totals during his tenure. In his first season, the Midshipmen broke school records for hits, doubles, home runs, RBI, and total bases. His most recent hitters have been especially disciplined at the plate as Navy led the Patriot League in walks drawn and fewest strikeouts in both 2013 and 2014.  

In addition to his on-field duties, Reynolds served as the team's travel coordinator, compliance point-person, and recruiter. He also began serving as the director of Navy Baseball Camps in 2012, a multi-season program which works with over 550 campers on an annual basis. He recently completed a six-year tenure as an active duty Lieutenant and Physical Education Instructor at Navy. He stood as the Physical Education Duty Officer, opening and securing Physical Education buildings and remaining on-call on a bi-weekly basis to respond to any facility issues. He was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for professional achievement in the superior performance of his duties as an instructor and coach.

Reynolds got his start in collegiate coaching at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass), his alma mater, where he served as a graduate assistant coach for three seasons. In that role, he worked with infielders and hitters and assisted in recruiting. Reynolds played his final two collegiate playing seasons at UMass after transferring from the University of Maine. He earned Atlantic 10 All-Tournament Team honors in 2003 and was named the Minutemen's Most Valuable Player the following season.

Reynolds earned a B.A. in Communications from UMass in 2005 and an M.Ed. in Education Technology from the school five years later.
