Bryan Aughney
Head Coach
4th Season
Bryan Aughney was named Head Baseball Coach at The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College in October 2008.
 
In four years as head coach of the Scorpions, Aughney has compiled a record of 124-107 (.537), and guided the Scorpions to the postseason all four years. The Scorpions improved on their record for each of the first three years, and posted a winning record in Aughney's fourth season.
 
In Aughney's first season as a head coach in 2009, the Scorpions finished with a 28-31 overall record and 9-3 mark in the Red River Athletic Conference. UTB/TSC finished third in the RRAC Tournament for the second straight year. At the time, the 28 victories was a school record in the NAIA era.
 
In the 2010 season, the Scorpions finished with a 31-24 record and finished first in the South Division during the regular season. UTB/TSC finished second in the RRAC Tournament, qualifying for the NAIA National Championship tournament for the first time in school history. The Scorpions played in the Opening Round Tournament in Lubbock, where they finished third. The 31 wins became the NAIA school record for victories.
 
In the 2011 season, the Scorpions took another step forward. They finished with a 35-26 record and finished in fourth place in the 11-team RRAC during the regular season. They finished second in the RRAC Tournament again, qualifying for the NAIA National Championship tournament for the second straight year. The Scorpions played in the Opening Round Tournament in Oklahoma City, where they placed fifth. The 35 victories became the NAIA school record for victories.
 
A native of Bozeman, Mont., Aughney began working at UTB/TSC in September 2007 as Assistant Baseball Coach. During the 2008 season, the Scorpions went 24-32 and were seeded sixth in the RRAC Tournament. UTB/TSC was the surprise team in the tournament with a third place finish.

During the 2006-07 season, Aughney was an assistant coach at Bellevue University, which reached the NAIA Baseball World Series semifinals. During 2005-06, he was Assistant Coach at Northland College under Joel Barta, the former Scorpion Head Baseball Coach who Aughney succeeded.

Prior to that in 2005 and 2006, Aughney was also Hitting Coach for the Wisconsin Woodchucks of the Northwoods League, a summer baseball league for collegiate baseball players.

For two seasons in 2004 and 2005, Aughney was head coach of the Big Sky Fall Baseball League for players 18 years of age and younger. From 2001 to 2004, he was also Associate Head Coach of the Gallatin Valley Outlaws American Legion team.

Aughney attended Dawson Community College (Mont.) from 2001 to 2002, helping the Buccaneers win their conference and region championship and advancing to the 2001 NJCAA World Series.

He then transferred to Northland College (Wis.), where he became an All-Conference outfielder and utility player and was team captain and received the Team Foreman Award in 2004. Aughney was a two- time All-Conference Outfielder and also earned Academic All-Conference honors.

Aughney received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and a Coaching Minor from Northland College in 2004 and a Master of Arts in Leadership from Bellevue University in 2007.
 
Aughney and his wife, Kathrine (Japp) Aughney, live in Brownsville.
