Mazey Adds Steven Trout to WVU Baseball Staff


Staff additions continue for the West Virginia baseball team as head coach Randy Mazey announced Thursday that Steven Trout would join him as an assistant coach.

"Steven played for me at TCU when I first arrived there, and he was one of the hardest working players I have ever coached," Mazey said in a release from the university. "He had a tremendous work ethic and got the most out of his abilities. He has a really good feel for the game, and the work ethic and energy he showed as a student-athlete have transferred to his coaching. I believe Steven is one of the best young coaches in the game, and I am really excited to have him join my staff."

Trout's most recent coaching stop was at Texarkana College, where he led the Bulldogs as head coach since 2011. His duties with Texarkana included coaching the infielders and hitters in addition to serving as the third base coach.

Texarkana was also a home to Trout in his playing days before he finished his baseball career at TCU, where Mazey served as associate head coach before joining WVU.

Trout's first coaching position was at Texas State University as a volunteer assistant before he took the job with the Bulldogs.

"I'm very excited to join the WVU baseball staff," Trout said. "Coach Mazey is one of the best baseball guys I know. I know I will learn a lot working with him and Derek Matlock. I think Mountaineer baseball is going to make a lot of strides in the Big 12 Conference, and I'm excited to get started."

Trout joins Derek Matlock as the first two assistants hired by Mazey since being named WVU head coach on June 6th.
