In the spring of 2013, Lindquist served as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Marietta College. As a member of the Pioneer baseball team, Lindquist helped Marietta capture back-to-back national championships in 2011 and 2012. One of the premier closers in Division III baseball, he finished his collegiate career with 28 saves, the most in program history. Lindquist earned first-team All-American, All-Mideast Region and All-OAC honors during his senior season.
A three-time All-OAC honoree, Lindquist set the Marietta single-season record with 12 saves in 2011. He holds the top three marks for saves in a season with seven in his sophomore and senior years, in addition to the 12 from his junior campaign.
