Texas A&M has given head baseball coach Rob Childress a two-year extension, according to a press release from the Aggies athletic department.
The extension, which will keep Childress in College Station through the 2021 season, comes after the Aggies won the SEC Tournament this season and made it to the NCAA Super Regionals.
“Rob has demonstrated his commitment to our goal of winning conference and national championships with an SEC title in 2016 and has had his team one game away from the College World Series the past two seasons,” Texas A&M athletics director Scott Woodward said. “Our baseball program is poised to take that next step under Rob’s leadership.”
Childress is entering his 12th season as the Aggies head coach. He has led the team to the NCAA Regionals 10 years in a row. The Aggies made it to the College World Series under Childress in 2011.
“I’m extremely thankful for the confidence that the Board of Regents, Chancellor (John) Sharp, President (Michael) Young and Scott Woodward have in the work we are doing and the direction we are taking Aggie Baseball,” Childress said. “I’m proud of the work we have done here and we’re set up for a great future. I’m excited about the staff and the team we have moving forward. We’re hungry to chase more SEC titles and get back to Omaha.”
