Texas State baseball coach Ty Harrington will take a temporary leave of absence from the team because of health reasons and his ongoing bout with rectal cancer. He plans to return when healthy, and there is no definite timetable at this point. Harrington was diagnosed in August 2014.

“My return will be determined by how I feel. As soon as I feel strong enough to lead the team in the high manner it takes, then I will return,” said Harrington. “I will still be associated with the team, but I’m confident that my assistant coaches, who have done most of the work with these guys in my absence, will do a good job and continue to work with our student-athletes at a high level.
