Cory Holley

Assistant Baseball Coach

Coach Cory Holley is in his third year as the Assistant Baseball Coach at Galveston College.  Under Holley, the Whitecaps' pitching staff finished 3rd in the country in ERA (2.58) in 60 games.  In two years coaching at Galveston College, every member of the pitching staff has had an opportunity to move on to a 4-year program.  One of the pitchers was selected in the draft by the Boston Red Sox (25th rd.), and another signed as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Rays.  During that stint, the Whitecaps also produced one All-American and two All-Region pitchers.  

Prior to coaching at Galveston College, Holley served as pitching coach for Lamar University for two years ('11-'12).  In that time, the Lamar Cardinals' pitching staff finished among the top in the Southland Conference in ERA, producing three MLB draft picks (LA Angels 35th rd., Boston Red Sox 37th rd., Houston Astros 44th rd.).  

The Galveston College alumnus pitched for the Whitecaps through the 2008 season, where he earned Region XIV All-Conference honors.  He continued on playing at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX, where in his junior year, he helped the Lamar Cardinals become ranked as high as 24th in the country among NCAA Division I programs.  In his senior year (2010), he lead the Cardinals in appearances, era, and saves, as they went on to win the Southland Conference Tournament, which landed them at TCU for the NCAA Regionals.  Coach Holley graduated in May 2012 with a Master’s degree in Kinesiology from Lamar University.
