SALT LAKE CITY – Utah head coach Bill Kinneberg has announced the hiring of Pete Flores to the baseball coaching staff. He will serve as a volunteer assistant.

“We are really excited to have Pete join us,” Kinneberg said. “The people he’s been around in his playing and coaching career give him new ideas to bring to the team and I’m very anxious to see him work on the field.”

Flores most recently spent three seasons at East Los Angeles College, serving as the top assistant. East made the state regional tournament two of the last three seasons. Flores worked with the team in a number of areas, including hitting, base-running and skill work.

Flores also spent the last three summers (2006-’08) coaching in the Central Illinois Collegiate League.

In 2005, Flores coached for one year at South Gate High School in Los Angeles, where the team made the city semifinal. Prior to that, he played at Southern Nazarene, as well as El Camino College.

Flores also played at University High in Santa Monica, Calif., reaching the city championships in 1998.

The baseball team opens its 2009 season at Loyola Marymount Feb. 20.
