Former Cougar Russell Stockton begins his first season with the UH program in 2009. The Houston native will work with the offense and assist with the infield defense, as well as assist with the on-field coaching duties and the recruiting process.

"Russell is a mirror image of what we have in the program right now. We have three coaches on our staff now that are going to be getting after it in a big way. That's why I am excited that he has come on board," head coach Rayner Noble said.

"He is a very patient person and he pays attention to detail. First and foremost, he is a very hard worker. He is relentless and gets the job done. That's exactly what someone would want in a coach, someone that's going to stay on task."

Stockton comes to Houston after spending 10 seasons as the head coach at Texas A&M-Kingsville. He left there as the program's winningest baseball coach, finishing with a 275-273 record. His 275th win came as the Javelinas defeated top-seeded and nationally ranked Abilene Christian to win the 2008 Lone Star Conference Tournament and advance to the NCAA Division II Tournament.

In 2007, TAMUK advanced to the Lone Star Conference Tournament, earning wins over Prairie View, a NCAA Division I Tournament participant and nationally ranked St. Mary's. Senior Brandon Hevner took home South Texas College Pitcher of the Year honors, the second consecutive season that a Javelina pitcher was given the honor. In addition, four players earned Second Team All-Lone Star Conference South Division honors.

With Stockton at the helm, the Javelinas posted 30-win season in four of his last six years. The Javelins posted four-consecutive 30-win season from 2003 to 2006, including a 132-86 record and a 70-27 mark at home.

Stockton has tutored many players that have earned league, regional and national honors, including Mike Adams, who is currently a member of the San Diego Padres. Adams was the 2000 LSC South Division Pitcher of the Year and finished the year with 105 strikeouts and a 4.28 ERA.

Garret Murdy and Chris White, both Stockton pupils, were selected in the Major League Baseball Drafts in 2004 and 2006, respectively. Both were named Lone Star Conference Pitcher of the Year honors and Murdy was named the 2004 NCAA Division II Pitcher of the Year.

In addition, Steve Foley played in the Seattle Mariners farm system, Joe Luis Lopez played in the Pittsburgh Pirate system, Bobby Lara is a professional in the Mexican League and Aaron Smith played with Shreveport Sports of the Central Professional Baseball League in 2004 and 2005.

Prior to his time at TAMUK, Stockton was the head coach at Cedar Valley College in Lancaster, Texas. There he was named the 1997 National Junior College Athletic Association Regional Coach of the Year and was a NJCAA regional director. In addition, he was selected as the 1997 Texas and New Mexico Junior College Baseball Coaches Association coach of the year and was the recipient of the Louisville Slugger Award. In 1997, he was also the recipient of the American Baseball Coaches Association Diamond Sports Regional Coach of the Year Award.

Stockton was the vice president and head coach at the Bragg Stockton Skill and Drills Baseball Camps for 12 years. He has also been a private instructor and has coached more than 500 players at various levels and positions.

From 1991-1994, Stockton served as an assistant coach the Houston before taking the head coach position at Cedar Valley. Prior to that he was a four-year letterwinner with the Cougar baseball team and was a member of teams that qualified for the NCAA Regionals twice and the Southwest Conference Tournament three times. Stockton started in the infield for three years and was a relief pitcher for two years.

His father, Bragg, is a former head baseball coach at Houston.

Stockton holds a bachelor's and master's degree in kinesiology from the University of Houston. He and his wife, Linda have five children, Zachary, Lauren, Jacob, Amanda and Peter.
