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.

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.
