Matt Deggs has resigned from being the Texas A&M Associate Baseball Head Coach. He has resigned due to personal health and family matters.
He has coached the Aggies offensive and infielders, while assisting in recruiting, over the past 5-years. His approach has helped the Aggies win three Big 12 Championships and four straight NCAA tournaments, which ties a school record.
He has also been an assistant coach at Arkansas and at Northwestern State. He was the head coach at Texarkana from 1998 to 2002.
“I’ve spent the last 16 years pouring my heart and soul into this game and over that time it’s taken its toll with much of that coming at the expense of my family and my health,” Deggs said. “The hardest part about this is stepping away from this team and coaching staff, especially Rob Childress who I’ve worked with for so many years and is one of my closest friends.
“Texas A&M has great players, a great coaching staff and I expect big things from them during the 2011 season and into the future. I will always cherish the time I’ve had here and the memories I’ve made. Most of all, I’ll miss the players. I still have the burning desire for this game and to coach it, but right now I need to focus on my family and my health.”
