FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. –Arkansas head baseball coach Dave Van Horn has elected not to serve as an assistant coach for the USA National Team this summer.
He made the decision following the departure of assistant coach and hitting instructor Matt Deggs to Texas A&M. Deggs, a native of Texas City, Texas, returns to his home state to run the Aggies’ offense.
“With Matt leaving for Texas A&M, I felt that I needed to stay here and take care of this program,” Van Horn said. “I need to hire an assistant coach, take care of our baseball camps and finish up recruiting. It was an honor to be selected to serve as an assistant coach on the USA National Team, but right now I have to take care of our program.”
