Nebraska baseball is bringing home a former assistant who has spent a long time leading the Texas A&M baseball program.

On Monday, the Huskers announced the addition of Rob Childress to the staff of head coach Will Bolt. Childress previously spent time in Lincoln from 1998-2005 before leading the Aggies program to over 600 career wins.

“I’m excited to get back to Nebraska and help Will and the rest of the Nebraska baseball staff any way I can,” Childress said. “Nebraska is a special place, and my family and I couldn’t be happier to be back in Lincoln.”

“What an honor it is to have Rob and his family rejoin the Husker baseball family,” Bolt said. “The wealth of baseball knowledge and experience he will contribute to our program is surpassed only by his ability to help motivate and mentor young people. This is a grand slam hire for our program, and we couldn’t be prouder to have him back to represent Husker baseball.”

Childress’ new role will be that of Director of Player Development for the Huskers. Welcome back and best of luck to Childress in his new role at Nebraska.
