Oct. 19, 2001
Brent Rincon, a University of Oregon softball assistant coach, has been selected interim head coach, athletics director Bill Moos announced Friday.
Rincon, who was hired in August as one of two new assistants, takes over following the resignation of Rick Gamez on October 1. Gamez was 168-164-1 in five seasons and resigned his post after financial irregularities were discovered.
Prior to being hired at Oregon, Rincon served as the athletics director and assistant principal at Tempe High School in Arizona. Rincon also served as the head coach at Arizona High Schools Corona Del Sol and McClintock.
Oregon assistant coach Jennifer Jaime will serve as the first assistant on an interim basis as well. Jaime played at University of Oklahoma and was part of the 2000 national championship team, which finished the season 66-8. Jaime served as a graduate assistant for the Sooners last season. The team finished 50-9 overall and 14-2 Big 12.
Rincon and his wife of seven years, MaryJane, are the parents of two daughters: Maren (5) and Madison (3).
