Lance used to be my favorite former Rice athlete, but at this point I have zero desire for Rice to hire him in any capacity.

Hallmark hired as head coach at UIW. At least we know there's one team that won't surpass us in the Texas baseball ranks.

Aside from the desire to move back home, I'm not sure how this advances Patrick's career. However, I would not be surprised if we play UIW in one of our Fall Ball exhibition games.

It advances it by giving him HC experience in an area that has a ton of HS baseball talent.

Not sure if a head coaching stint at UIW will be perceived as a step up from the primary assistant coaching job at Rice (where he was clearly #2 to The OG) or the pitching coach job at Mizzou.

That's one way to look at it for sure...another way is that if he has any success at all, he can parlay it into a bigger HC job. UIW is in a very fertile recruiting area. Lots of SA kids that may be enticed to stay home and build a program.

So how many former Coach Graham assistants have now been college head coaches?

Rayner Noble, Chris Rupp, David Pierce, Patrick Hallmark. I'm sure I'm missing some but that's at least 4.

Isn't Hallmark pitching coach at Mizou?
