BEEVILLE – Things are changing within the Coastal Bend College Athletic Department. Frank Morón, a two-year assistant coach in the softball program, will take over the head coaching duties from Estevan Vasquez.

“Frank has a passion for the game and over 20 years of top-flight experience in the game,” said Vasquez, who will remain as the athletic coordinator at CBC.

“He has good chemistry with the players, having had a hand in recruiting them over the last two years, and he has the ability to keep the program advancing.”

Morón plans on keeping the Cougar softball program competitive in a very tough Region XIV environment. The region almost always produces two or three nationally-ranked junior college softball teams every year.

“I want to stay competitive. We have some good recruits coming in, and we will be playing an aggressive style of softball on the bases and in just playing the game,” said Morón.

“We’ll be continuing with what coach Vasquez has started, and he will be missed.”

Vasquez relinquishes his duties as head coach but will now be able to better serve the department as a whole.

“This move will enable me to get more involved in the other sports. I will also be able to work and put more interest in other projects within the department,” Vasquez said.

One of the projects, according to Vasquez, will be promoting games at the college and making the programs more visible within the community and surrounding area.

The reason behind it all will be to increase the awareness of CBC athletics to aid in recruiting and to get more people to come and see what the athletic department is accomplishing.

The department also may affect the overall enrollment at the college with winning programs that maintain a winning tradition, he said.
