Evans promoted to associated head coach

Posted: Updated:

Gonzaga has a new, familiar assistant head baseball coach.  Mark Machtolf, the current head coach, said Tuesday Danny Evans would be promoted to associated head coach.

"Danny has been a huge part of our success in the past few years," Machtolf said in a news release.  "He is very deserving of the promotion as he continues to head our recruiting efforts along with making us one of the best defensive teams in the country year in and year out."

Evans has been with the Gonzaga baseball program for the past six seasons, serving as the team's recruiting coordinator, infield coach and third base coach.  He's helped the Zags to 30 wins a season, including 30-win seasons in each of the past three years.  Last season Gonzaga achieved 36 wins and went to the NCAA Tournament.

Evans, a 2003 graduate of Gonzaga, was a 4-year letter winner for the Bulldogs, appearing in 162 over his career.  He alternated between shortstop and third base and capped his senior season with a second-team All-West Coast Conference honor.

"I'm proud of Danny and all that he has accomplished in his career at Gonzaga," said Machtolf.
