Brian Walker is in his third season on the Razorback coaching staff and in his second year as the team’s volunteer assistant coach. Walker works primarily with the Razorback catchers.

Walker continued his work in developing Razorback catchers during the 2012 season. Jake Wise was one of the best defensive catchers in the country, not committing an error in 438 chances in 2012. Wise was also effective in slowing down the opposition’s running game as he threw out 17 would-be base stealers.
   
In his first season on the Arkansas coaching staff, Walker mentored James McCann, one of the top catchers in collegiate baseball. McCann, who was named a semifinalist for the Johnny Bench Award, enjoyed his best season at the plate, finishing the year with a .306 batting average with six homers and 38 RBI. Defensively, McCann had a .992 fielding percentage, committing just four errors, while throwing out 20 would-be base stealers. McCann was a second round draft pick of the Detroit Tigers in the 2011 MLB Draft.
   
Walker joined the Arkansas coaching staff after spending four years in the Anaheim Angels minor league system. Walker closed the 2010 season with the Angels’ triple-A squad, Salt Lake City. In six games with Salt Lake City, he hit .300 with six RBI.
   
A three-year letterwinner at Arkansas, Walker played in 164 games, including 145 starts, and hit .260 with 26 home runs and 98 RBI. Walker was stellar in the field for the Razorbacks, committing just five errors over his three-year career for a .996 fielding percentage. He was drafted in the 29th round of the 2007 MLB Draft by the Anaheim Angels.
   
A native of Tulsa, Okla., Walker graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in kinesiology. Walker and his wife, McKenzi, have two children, Claire (4) and Joseph (4).
