FIELD MANAGER – CASEY HARMS
On October 3, 2018, the Waterloo Bucks announced the hiring of Casey Harms as the team’s new Field Manager. Harms comes to the Bucks from Santa Barbara City College where he is the Associate Head Coach.”Throughout the meticulous process of interviewing a number of applicants for our managerial position, Casey rose to the top with his energetic attitude, successful coaching track record, and solid communication skills,” said Bucks general manager Dan Corbin. “He comes highly recommended and we look forward to him guiding us back to the playoffs with a winning culture.”
A former assistant coach at UC Santa Barbara, Harms joined the Santa Barbara City College staff this past fall. Harms had been with the Gauchos coaching staff for the previous six years, helping them to three NCAA Regionals, one Super Regional, and the first College World Series appearance in school history. Harms also has summer-collegiate experience, coaching for the Kelowna Falcons of the West Coast League in 2014.
“I am very fortunate for the opportunity to lead the Bucks in 2019 and am excited to represent the Cedar Valley next summer,” said Harms.
Before entering the coaching profession, Harms was an outfielder and three-year captain at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Harms earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Kinesiology from Occidental in 2012 and earned a master’s degree in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University Irvine in 2016. He and his wife Samantha currently reside in Santa Barbara, California.
