Tracz Hired as Head Coach at Marist


Former pitcher and pitching coach Chris Tracz (left) has been named head coach at Marist.


Tracz was a standout hurler for the Red Foxes from 2001-05 and holds the school’s career records for victories, strikeouts, complete games, starts and innings pitched.


At the conclusion of his playing career, Tracz became the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator for Marist from 2006-08.


This past season, Tracz was the pitching coach at Army. He helped the Black Knights win the regular season and tournament titles in the Patriot League. Army advanced to the finals of the Austin Regional before falling to host Texas, the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.


Tracz replaces Dennis Healy, who resigned to become pitching coach at Wake Forest.
