Nick La Face was named to the UC San Diego baseball coaching staff as an assistant in July of 2014. The appointment follows a stellar five-year playing career for the catcher and designated hitter as a Triton from 2010-14.

In addition to coaching duties, La Face will aid in the recruiting process and camps, and have field maintenance oversight. During the 2015 season, he will serve as the first base coach.

In a UCSD uniform, La Face was a three-time All-West Region performer and .300 career hitter with 14 home runs over more than 200 appearances. He left the program ranked No. 2 all-time at UCSD in walks (134), No. 3 in doubles (60) and No. 8 in RBI (146).

La Face saved his best for last as a senior in 2014, garnering All-America honorable mention thanks to career bests in batting average (.347), runs (42), hits (67), doubles (21), triples (5), RBI (54), total bases (104), slugging (.539), walks (47) and on-base percentage (.486). He led the league in doubles, triples and walks, and put together a reached-base streak of 35 games.

All told, La Face was a part of one NCAA Division II West Region (2010), four California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) regular-season and four CCAA tournament titles, including the program's record sixth as a senior last May. The two-time All-CCAA First Team selection was named the Most Outstanding Player of both the 2012 and 2014 CCAA Championship.

La Face completed his degree requirements in political science with a minor in education studies at the conclusion of the 2014 winter quarter as a student at UCSD’s Warren College. He was a two-time Capital One Academic All-District 8 First Team honoree.

A North Hollywood product, La Face starred at Notre Dame High School prior to his days as a Triton.
