The Terrapins baseball team hired Corey Haines as a volunteer assistant coach, coach John Szefc announced today.
Haines spent last season at Shippensberg University as a volunteer assistant coach working with infielders. He will return to the Terps for the first time since spending three seasons—from 2009 to 2011—as a volunteer and student assistant.
“Corey is a great overall fit for this program,” Szefc said in a news release. “He has a lot of passion for Maryland. He is a good fit because he is versatile. With Jimmy [Belanger] handling the pitchers, Rob [Vaughn] handling the catchers and my responsibilities with the infielders, Corey can bounce between all three of us and help in all three areas.”
Haines worked as a volunteer assistant in 2009 under former head coach Terry Rupp and continued as a student assistant from 2010-11 under former head coach Erik Bakich. He graduated from Maryland in 2011 with a degree in kinesiology.
