Deggs Named FInalist for Sam Houston State Head Baseball Coach

Brad Kemp/

When a school has great success, their coaches become very attractive to other schools.

So, it should come as no surprise that Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns’ assistant coach Matt Deggs has been named a finalist for the head coaching job at Sam Houston State in Huntsville, Texas.

SHSU Athletics Director Bobby Williams made the announcement of the finalists Thursday morning.

The other finalists are Texas State pitching coach Jeremy Fikac, Nebraska associate head coach Will Bolt and Texas A&M Corpus Christi head coach Scott Malone.

Deggs has been on the Cajuns’ staff since March, 2012.  The last two years the Cajuns have been among the nation’s leaders in most offensive categories.  Deggs and Bolt were both on the staff at Texas A&M in 2006-07; Deggs as associate head coach and Bolt as a volunteer assistant.

Fikac is a Texas State grad and former major league pitcher who amassed a 7-10 career record with a 4.49 ERA.  He was a two way player for the Bobcats and helped the TSU pitching staff to the best ERA in conference games in the Sun Belt.

Malone has been at TAMU-CC for eight seasons.  He has led the Islanders to finishes near the top of the Southland Conference the past two seasons.
