EDMOND — Cody Painter, who has served as Central Oklahoma's graduate assistant baseball coach the past two years, will take over as the program's recruiting coordinator while continuing his on-field duties with catches and hitters, head coach Dax Leone announced Thursday.
"Cody has earned this title and I couldn't be more happy for him and his wife, Candace," Leone said. "He has a great eye for talent and understands completely the type player we want here at UCO. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can continue to accomplish with the momentum we've created."
Painter, who will finish up work on his master's in secondary education this summer, has helped the Bronchos to back-to-back 30-win seasons and played an instrumental role this year as UCO went 37-17 for its most wins since 2008.
