UALR’s Silva named new recruiting coordinator
Assistant coach Mike Silva has been named the new recruiting coordinator for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, head Coach Chris Curry announced Monday.
Silva has overseen the Trojans pitching staff since he joined the program in the fall of 2016, and the pitchers recorded a program-record 463 strikeouts last season. The team’s 8.5 strikeouts per nine innings ranked third in the Sun Belt Conference and 47th nationally. They also allowed the third-fewest hits in the league at 8.83 per nine innings. The Trojans’ ERA also dropped from 6.20 in 2016 to 4.76 in 2017.
