Head baseball coach candidate: Jason Marshall

Jason Marshall will interview for the baseball head coaching on Tuesday. Marshall has been on the coaching for UTSA for the last 11 seasons.

After serving as an assistant his first three seasons for UTSA, Marshall was promoted to associate head coach prior to the 2004 campaign. He coaches both the infielders coach and is the recruiting coordinator in addition to running the UTSA Baseball camps.

His efforts on the recruiting trails have resulted in a pair of All-Americans (Mark Schramek 2002/Michael Rockett 2008), four Freshman All-Americans (Ryan Crew 2003/Rockett 2006/Tim Palincsar 2007/Ryan Dalton 2010), 46 All-Southland Conference performers (including 11 first teamers), the 2007 and '08 Southland Regular Season Championships and 2005 Southland Tournament title.

The Roadrunners posted a .964 fielding percentage in 2007, the second-best mark in school history, and have recorded the top five fielding seasons in school annals under his guidance. Five years ago, UTSA led the Southland Conference with a school-record .969 fielding percentage.

A standout performer at Texas A&M from 1989-92, he was named the Aggies’ Most Valuable Player after leading the team in games played (61), hits (66), runs scored (35) and RBIs (40) as a senior.

Following his collegiate career, he was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 13th round of the 1992 Major League Baseball Draft. Marshall went on to play four seasons in the Royals organization before finishing his professional career in 1995.
