David Martinez returns to Riverside City College, a place that he calls home, and assisting the baseball program in its quest to be State Champions for the fifth time in the program’s history. Martinez’ last RCC stint with RCC lasted two years before he accepted the Pitching Coach/Recruiting Coordinator position at University of Nevada - Las Vegas, but not after the Tigers captured their fourth state title. While at UNLV, he guided the Running Rebels pitching staff for three years (2008-10) before taking on the same position with the University of New Mexico Lobos from 2011 & 2012. During both those years, the Lobos qualified for NCAA Regional play.
Martinez then accepted the Pitching Coach/Recruiting Coordinator position at Dixie Sate. During his three years there, the Red Storm earned NCAA Tournament berths in each season and won the Pacific West Conference championships in 2013 & 2014.
Shortly after, Martinez took on the task of rebuilding the program at Cal State San Bernardino as the Head Baseball Coach in 2015. He guided the Coyotes to a NCAA tournament berth in one of the two years at the helm. He then took on another pitching coach/recruiting coordinator position at Cal State Dominguez Hills in 2017.
Head Coach, Rudy Arguelles “We are ecstatic to have David back home. His knowledge, experience and total awareness of the Tiger program and family is invaluable. Not only will our pitchers, but all will benefit from his teaching and mentorship abilities”.
David and his wife Saraya are the parents of two children, Andrew and Sofia.
