Prior to his year at CSUDH, Bendik spent two years as the pitching coach at Los Angeles Harbor Community College where he worked with current Arizona pitching coach and former Harbor head coach Andy Diver.

A 2004 graduate of Cal State Dominguez Hills, Bendik played collegiate baseball at LA Harbor and at the University of Nevada, Reno. He was named the California JC and South Coast Conference Player of the Year at Harbor in 1994, as well as the team’s MVP. That same season he was named a first-team All-American.
