Greg Maddux to join UNLV as volunteer assistant

  UNLV baseball is set to add an MLB legend to its coaching staff.

UNLV baseball just added quite the baseball mind to its coaching staff.

Greg Maddux, who pitched 23 seasons and won 355 games in the big leagues, is set to join the Rebels’ staff in the fall. What a hire by head coach Stan Stolte, who was understandably elated when speaking about Maddux.

“To add arguably the smartest player to ever step foot on a baseball field to our staff is so exciting for our student-athletes and the program,” Stolte said. “After meeting with Greg, you are so impressed with him not only with his knowledge of the game, but how grounded he has remained and his genuine desire to share his knowledge with up-and-coming players. He may be the most respected teammate in the game past or present, which is the ultimate compliment as a player. We look forward to his immediate impact once we begin our fall season.”

Maddux ranks eighth in wins and 10th in strikeouts in MLB history. To say UNLV pitchers could learn a thing or two from him would be an understatement.
