It was announced by the Athletics Department on December 18th that Tim Chambers had stepped down as head coach of the UNLV baseball program. He had been on indefinite medical leave since early July and Associate Head Coach Stan Stolte has been named acting head coach.
"At this time, the best thing for the players and myself is to resign as head coach," said Chambers. "I would like to thank the administration at UNLV for their support during this challenging time. The last two years have been difficult for me and it's important that at this time I focus on my health and family before making decisions about the future.
"It's also equally important, if not more so, for UNLV baseball and its talented student-athletes to move forward and continue its great traditions without further uncertainty. I will continue to support UNLV baseball and I wish them all the best of luck in the upcoming season and will miss each and every one of them."
Coach Chambers had a record of 157-132 and was entering his fifth season at UNLV. His best season as coach had to be 2014 when the Rebels won the regular season title and a NCAA bid with one of the best pitching staffs in the country. He has been one of the more successful head coaches in the MWC.
