Holley named baseball coach at University of Redlands

Aaron Holley has been named the Head Baseball Coach/Assistant Director of Athletics for Game Management at the University of Redlands.  He replaces Scott Laverty who also did both jobs before moving on to Chapman.

The transition should be a smooth one as Holley, who previously played for the Bulldogs, served as an assistant under Laverty in seven of the last eight years.

“It’s exciting to be able to lead the ball club that I have been a part of for the last 13 years as a player and assistant coach,” Holley said in a press release from the university.  “This university has given me so much and it’s a blessing to know that now I get to give back. This is a dream come true and I’m just excited to get started preparing our team for the upcoming season.”

Holley was a key played for the Bulldogs in his four-year career. He compiled a .325 batting average to go along with 58 RBI, 16 doubles, eight triples, and 103 runs in his career, earning first-team All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference as a senior.

Upon completion of his Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, Holley returned to the University of Redlands as an assistant coach in 2006.  He later assumed the role of graduate assistant coach while pursuing his Master of Arts in Higher Education.

Following a one-year hiatus, Holley then returned to Redlands to coach baseball and work as a member of the athletic facilities staff.

Beyond his coaching responsibilities at Redlands, Holley also takes on the role of Assistant Director of Athletics for Game Management.
