Remember when Huskers baseball assistant coach Will Bolt was only being interviewed for the head coaching job at Sam Houston State. Yeah, that gig’s beneath him.
An assistant spot at Texas A&M, however, is not.

Bolt is rather familiar with current Aggie head coach Rob Childress. The Texas A&M head man coached the Cornhuskers as an assistant for eight years, including during Bolt’s days as a member of the Big Red.
The Huskers’ Associate Head Coach also coached at Texarkana Junior College, only solidifying a talent pipeline that could bring the Aggies back to Omaha sooner than later.
Perhaps most importantly, Bolt has the chops to be the skipper of his own team someday and he’s built an impressive resume already.
Should Bolt head to College Station, he’ll join a head coach that helped Nebraska advance to the postseason five times, super regionals four times and be the hometown favorite at the College World Series three times.
Money or promises for advancement may not keep Bolt from…well, bolting. If he’s feeling the call to head home, maybe the wooing by Sam Houston State was a sign.
If Childress saw him wanting to return to the Lone Star State, Bolt may as well come to a program that’s in the national spotlight and can easily get to Omaha.
