Danny Evans enters his 15th season as a member of the Gonzaga University baseball coaching staff in 2016. Serving as the associate head coach since 2009, Evans is the primary recruiting coordinator, third base and infield coach.
Evans has witnessed the growth of the baseball program during his tenure. During that time the Zags have had eight 30 win seasons, most recently winning 33 in 2017. The Bulldogs have claimed four West Coast Conference titles, winning the league in 2009, 2013, 2016, and 2017. He’s twice helped guide the squad to the NCAA Regionals, earning a berth via a WCC Series victory in 2009 and the program’s first-ever at-large berth in 2016. Furthermore, he’s taken the Bulldogs to four WCC Championships since the tournament was created in 2013.
Also, Evans helped guide the club to a national ranking in six different seasons. The Bulldogs have been voted as high as No. 19 twice: once by Baseball America in 2009 and the other by Collegiate Baseball in 2017.
The Bulldogs have flourished with Evans on the recruiting trail. In addition to nationally recognized recruiting classes, the Zags have seen a number of players get drafted into Major League Baseball. During Evans’ career, 38 Bulldogs have been selected during the MLB draft. Since taking over as the recruiting coordinator, 25 players have been chosen including one first round pick, a third round selection, two sixth round picks, four seventh round picks, one eighth-round selection, two ninth-round picks, and one more in the 10th. Also, the Zags’ 2014 recruiting class was named one of the top 35 in the nation by Baseball America.
Under Evans’ assistance, the Bulldogs have highlighted a number of season awards including 94 All-WCC players, 14 All-Americans and four Freshman All-Americans. The Bulldogs have also taken home four WCC Player of the Year honors, five WCC Pitcher of the Year accolades, and both a WCC Defensive Player of the Year and WCC Freshman of the Year award.
A 2003 graduate of Gonzaga, Evans was a four year letterwinner for the Zags and appeared in 162 games throughout his career. Bouncing between shortstop and third base, Evans was recognized his senior season with All-WCC Second Team honors.
