Leyba Promoted to Associate Head Coach
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Eric Leyba has been elevated to the position of associate head coach for the 2023 season, Oregon State head coach Laura Berg announced Friday.
"I'm really excited about this promotion," said Berg. "Coach Leyba has done an incredible job with the hitters and the infield. He deserves this promotion."
Going into his fifth season in Corvallis, Leyba works primarily with the hitters and infielders.
The Beavers had one of the best seasons in program's history in 2022. Oregon State made their second-ever in the Women's College World Series after winning the Knoxville, Tenn. Regional and Stanford, Calif. Super Regional. The staff – including Leyba – was named NCFA Pacific Region Coaching Staff of the Year following the 39-22 season that featured a 17-game winning streak.
Leyba guided a pair – Mariah Mazon and Frankie Hammoude – to All-America honors and four – Mazon, Hammoude, Kiki Escobar and Eliana Gottlieb – to All-Pac-12 honors last year ahead of the run to Oklahoma City.
Before joining Berg's staff, he instructed student-athletes at Churchill High School, the University of Oregon and New Mexico State.
