Assistant Coach/Recruiting Coordinator
Nathan Choate begins his third season as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator for Grand Canyon University. In his first season with the Antelopes in 2012, he directed a GCU pitching staff that included Major League Baseball draft pick Brady Wager and breakout freshman Jorge Perez. His second season saw him oversee the emergence of 2013 Pacific West Conference Freshman of the Year Andrew Naderer.
Choate joined the GCU staff after spending four seasons at UC Riverside, serving as the Highlanders' pitching coach and recruiting coordinator. While at UCR, he coached 11 pitchers that were drafted by Major League Baseball clubs. In addition, Choate coached back-to-back Freshman All-Americans in Mitch Patitio and Dylan Stuart. Stuart was later named the 2011 Big West Freshman Pitcher of the Year. UC Riverside's pitching staff compiled a 3.40 ERA during his final season, the lowest ERA in the last 15 years of the program and the lowest ERA for a UCR team at the Division I level.
Prior to his time at UCR, Choate was the pitching coordinator for UC Irvine, who finished fourth at the 2007 College World Series. He served as the Anteaters' director of baseball operations in 2006. Choate pitched collegiately at Cal Poly for two seasons, where he was awarded the "Jim Newkirk Fireman's Award", given to the team's best relief pitcher, in his junior and senior seasons. He also pitched two seasons at Santa Ana Junior College in 1998 and 1999, helping the Dons to a third-place finish in 1999.
Gregg Wallis enters his first season with the GCU baseball program after spending three seasons at the University of Tennessee. While with the Volunteers, he served as a volunteer assistant coach and most recently, as the director of baseball operations.
Ryan Cisterna enters his third season as an assistant coach for Grand Canyon University.
Cisterna attended the University of Arkansas and played in the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Prior to his time with Arkansas, he played for Chandler-Gilbert Community College.
Cisterna was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and played three seasons of professional baseball. He will also direct GCU's baseball camps throughout the year.
