Lance Brown, Texas Christian University's all-time winningest baseball coach, is the team’s bench coach.  In 2010 he was the pitching coach for Grand Prairie. Brown completed his 17th season as the Horned Frogs head coach in 2003, with a career record of 517-471.  Brown played a large role in the success of TCU baseball, first as an all-America player who pitched the Horned Frogs to the 1963 Southwest Conference championship, then later as a coach. Thirty-one years after he earned the '63 Southwest Conference Player of the Year honors by posting an 11-1 record (8-1 in the SWC), he guided the Frogs to the 1994 SWC title as the head coach, making him one of only two men to win both the SWC Player and Coach of the Year honors. Brown is third for the school mark for pitching victories in a season (following Matt Purke and Lance Broadway) and ranks third in strikeouts in a single season with 109. Brown was selected as the 1994 Regional Coach of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association. He was named the 1994 SWC Coach of the Year, his second such honor in his career. He also was the 1991 SWC Coach of the Year. Preceding his arrival at TCU, Brown served as the pitching coach at Rice University from 1983-86 and Texas Tech from 2005-2007.During the summer of 1983 Brown coached the Kenai Peninsula Oilers in the perennially tough Alaskan League. He also served as a batting practice pitcher for the Houston Astros from 1984 through 1986, the National League All-Star team in 1986, the American League All-Star team in 1995 and the Texas Rangers during parts of the last decade.
