Evans left the Red Raiders after the 2003 season.

Evans, Texas Tech's first base and infield coach, has been primarily responsible for Texas Tech's oustanding defense over the last several seasons. Evans rejoined the Red Raider coaching staff in 1998 after serving as an assistant at Texas Tech from 1993-1995.

Evans, nicknamed "E-Moe," served as an area scout for the Montreal Expos in 1997. His scouting area included the Southeast Region including Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Northern Florida. In his year-long stint with Montreal, Evans signed three first round picks including three players among the top-50 picks.

Under Evans' direction, Texas Tech had a fielding percentage of .971 in 1999 which was ranked in the nation's top five. In 2000, Evans guided the team to a .967 fielding percentage and in 2001 his team was the best in the Big 12 at .971.

Prior to arriving at Texas Tech in January 1993, Evans was an assistant at Lubbock Christian University from 1988-90. He served as head coach at Frank Phillips Junior College in Borger, Texas from 1990-92 where he compiled a two-year mark of 64-46. In his second season as head coach, his team established a school record with a 39-16 record. Helping Evans accomplish that feat were two ex-Red Raiders, Robin Hariss and Travis Smith. In 1996, he was named head coach at Grayson Junior College where he assembled and recruited a squad that finished seventh in the nation in 1997. In addition, he coached the Elkhart entry of the Jayhawk League in 1994-95 that consisted of Texas Tech players Matt Kastelic, Brandon Kolb and Scott Pfeifer. That team won its league title and finished fifth in the national tournament.

A former collegiate baseball player at Ole Miss from 1981-85, Evans played second base, third base and in the outfield. He graduated from Ole Miss in 1985 with a Bachelor's degree in Public Administration and received his Master's degree in Sports Administration from Texas Tech in 1987.

Evans has the unique distinction of having coached two members of the Hays family (Daren and Shanon) and having coached with three members of the Hays family- Daren, Shanon and Tech head coach Larry Hays.

Evans and his wife, Allyn, have a five-year old daughter named Kathryn Adele.
