FARGO, N.D. – North Dakota State head baseball coach Tod Brown today announced the addition of Tyler Oakes as the team's pitching coach for the 2014 season.  Oakes replaces Jake Angier, who was hired in November as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Sacramento State.

Oakes was a graduate assistant pitching coach at South Dakota State in 2010 and 2011 before spending the past two years as a volunteer assistant at Minnesota.  He was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten performer from 2006-09 at Minnesota, where he pitched in the starting rotation as a sophomore and worked out of the bullpen for three seasons.  Oakes signed with the Tampa Bay Rays as an undrafted free agent and played one season with the Princeton Rays of the Appalachian League.

"Tyler has a wealth of experience both as a player and a coach at the Division I level," Brown said.  "He has taken on a lot of responsibility early in his coaching career and will continue to have success at NDSU."
