Former A&M Coach Rob Childress to Join Nebraska Baseball Staff

July 11, 2021

Will Bolt and the Nebraska baseball team are making a big addition to their coaching staff, according to a report from d1baseball’s Kendall Rogers. Former Texas A&M head coach Rob Childress is joining the Huskers as the director of player development.

Childress—who did not have his contract renewed by Texas A&M after 16 seasons as the Aggies’ head coach—is more than familiar with Nebraska. He spent eight years as the Huskers’ pitching coach from 1998–2005, helping Nebraska advance to the NCAA Tournament five times, the Super Regionals four times and the College World Series three times.

Childress was hired by the Aggies in 2005 and went 622-336-1 during his tenure in College Station. That includes a pair of visits to the College World Series. He was also named Big 12 Coach of the Year in 2008. His 622 victories with the Aggies is good for third in school history.
