COACHING STAFF

KEVIN GRANT

Grant is the first Field Manager in Texarkana Rhinos’ history. He will be leading the charge through the 2024 season!  Grant has served as Cornell College Baseball’s pitching coach since the Fall of 2022 in Iowa.  Prior to arriving at Cornell, Grant worked as a volunteer assistant coach at NCAA Division I University of Evansville, where he helped guide the 2022 Purple Aces to their first 30-win season since 2014.

Before his time at Evansville, Grant served as the vice president at Prestige Travel Baseball in Chicago, Ill. His job duties included serving as the high school recruiting coordinator, head of youth development, strength and conditioning coordinator and head coach.

Grant, a military veteran, served four years in the United States Navy from 2011-2015. He was stationed on the USS Kearsarge (LHD3), an amphibious assault ship, and was deployed for 10 months to the Middle East in 2013. Grant worked on the flight deck and was a part of Crash and Smash, an elite crew of rescue fire fighters. Working with this crew helped shape Grant into the leader he is today.

Grant played baseball collegiately at St. Norbert College.
