Jarvis' last season with the Red Raiders was in 2012
Andy Jarvis enters his fifth year on the coaching staff at Texas Tech as the volunteer assistant coach in 2012. Jarvis' main responsibility is working the Texas Tech hitters. He also serves as the team's video coordinator, first base coach and assistant camp director.
Jarvis joined the program prior to the start of the 2008 season as he followed his former collegiate coach, Dan Spencer, to Lubbock when Spencer joined the staff as associate head coach. Jarvis played under Spencer for four seasons at Oregon State and left as the program's all-time leader in hits, home runs, RBI and total bases. He helped lead the Beavers to 112 victories. Jarvis was named All-Pac 10 Honorable Mention in 2000, 2002 and 2003.
Jarvis' contributions to the Texas Tech baseball program in four years have been significant.
In 2011, Texas Tech had three position players selected in the Major League Baseball First Year Players Draft as infielders Kelby Tomlinson (12th Round - San Francisco Giants), Nick Popescu (33rd Round - Atlanta Braves) and Reid Redman (37th Round - Los Angeles Dodgers) were all taken.
Texas Tech has been among the top hitting teams in the Big 12 Conference while working with Jarvis.
The Tech hitters finished tied for second in the Big 12 with a .307 batting average in 2010, and they led the league and ranked seventh in the nation with 162 doubles. It was the most doubles by a Big 12 team since 2003 (Baylor).
Texas Tech also led the Big 12 in batting for the second straight year - during conference play - with a .310 average. It is the first time a Big 12 team has led the conference in hitting (during Big 12 play) in back-to-back seasons since 2003-04 (Baylor).
One of Texas Tech's top hitters in 2010, Scott LeJeune, led the Big 12 with 28 doubles and ranked seventh in the nation. In 2009, two of Jarvis' hitters ranked among the top 20 in the Big 12 in batting average, and three Red Raiders finished in the league's top 10 in on-base percentage. Tech's 2008 hitters finished 29th in the nation with 127 doubles, which was third in the league.
Jarvis started four years for the Beavers where he compiled a .320 batting average (232-for-725) with 141 runs, 42 doubles, three triples, 34 home runs, 173 RBI and 82 walks. He played in 201 games and started in 179 contests. In addition, Jarvis still holds the Beavers' single-game home run record (3, vs. Washington State - 2001), the career RBI and total bases record and is tied for the career home run mark. He remains in seven Oregon State all-time career top-10 record books.
After finishing his collegiate career he signed a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Phillies reaching Single-A in the Florida State League before finishing his pro career in July 2004. In two minor league seasons, Jarvis played in 80 games batting .247 (68-for-275) with 11 doubles, one triple, nine home runs, 46 RBI and 42 walks.
He then turned immediately to the coaching ranks where he was named head coach of the Cannons Baseball Club in Renton, Wash, in the American Legion Baseball League in the summers of 2005, 2006 and 2007. In 2006, Jarvis joined the coaching staff of his high school alma mater (Liberty High School) where he served as an assistant varsity coach for both basketball and baseball.
Jarvis is a native of Renton, Wash., and is the son of Robert and Judith Jarvis.
