UNLV will bring back baseball coach Tim Chambers for two more years in hopes that he’ll build on the 69-59 record he’s compiled over the past three seasons.
“We are extremely happy that Tim Chambers will remain as our baseball coach for the foreseeable future,” said UNLV athletic director Jim Livengood in a release Wednesday. “In his third year, we are starting to see his recruiting come to fruition. He has done an outstanding job of building the program. We couldn’t be more pleased with what Tim and his staff have done with our young baseball team. As we move forward, we are excited for the program’s future in the Mountain West.”
In 2011, the team went 33-25, the first time UNLV had won 30 games in a season since 2005.
“We are building an exciting brand of baseball here and we have the tools to win. The camaraderie on our team and our staff is great,” Chambers said. “It is an exciting time to be part of Rebel baseball and the future is bright for the program.”
The school also announced that Stan Stolte has been promoted to associate head coach. Stolte was on the UNR coaching staff for 14 years. He has been with the Rebels for three seasons.
“Stan has been an instrumental part of our staff,” Chambers said. “He has helped our pitchers grow these past few seasons. He has a tremendous amount of experience at this level and will continue to help our program grow.”
