AUSTIN (KXAN) — David Pierce won the Baseball America College Coach of the Year for leading the Longhorns to the College World Series for the first time in four years.
With only two years on the resume’ as the Texas head coach, Pierce was more than deserving of the award for hitting the right buttons and putting the right pieces in place for the unexpected postseason run.
Pierce took very little time away before looking ahead to the 2019 season. The Longhorns lose two starters to the MLB Draft from the weekend rotation, but have several young arms and a promising recruiting class to fill the holes.
Pierce joined Roger Wallace on More than the Score this week.
