COACHING NEWS: Hearing @UCSB_Baseball will round out its coaching staff w/ @SMC_Baseball’s Matt Fonteno. Fonteno spent the last five seasons with the #Gaels and joins Donegal Fergus on the #UCSB staff. @BigWestBaseball
8:52 AM - 8 Jul 2018

__________________________________________

Strong hire by Checketts for the #2 assistant because Fonteno was the #1 assistant and recruiting coordinator at St. Mary's.  He coached position players and Valenzuela is the HC/pitching coach.

They have been recruiting well up there the last few years since Valenzuela was hired as the HC (he hired Fonteno five years ago) and the program has gotten much better, going to a regional in 2016, going 37-20, 18-9 in 2017 and 31-23, 14-13 this season, which was a bit of a disappointment because most of the team returned from 2017.

Harvey goes from a volunteer at UCSB to getting a paycheck at UCSD, replacing JT Bloodworth who moved up to Irvine when a spot opened up with Gillespie retiring and Orloff taking over.  HC Newman coached the pitchers at UCSD so Harvey will do that and Newman will focus more on the position players.
