Brian Walker is beginning his third season as an assistant coach for Wichita State.

Walker worked with two Shockers drafted in 2015 including first team all-Valley outfielder Sam Hilliard, who was taken in the 15th round by the Colorado Rockies, and second team all-Valley outfielder Daniel Kihle, who was taken in the 18th round by the Minnesota Twins.

During his first season in 2014, Walker helped develop Shocker first baseman Casey Gillaspie into one of the top hitters in the nation as Gillaspie was a consensus first team All-American. Gillaspie was the 20th overall pick to the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2014 MLB Draft after hitting .389 with 82 hits, 15 doubles, 15 home runs, 50 RBI and 58 walks.

Walker also helped develop catcher Tyler Baker and third baseman Chase Simpson. Baker was a 15th round draft choice by the Arizona Diamondbacks and Simpson was a 14th round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Baker finished the season with a .989 fielding percentage and threw out 22 of 45 base stealers in 2014. Simpson hit .258 with 14 doubles, six home runs and 41 RBI.

In 2013, he finished his third season on the Arkansas coaching staff and his second season as the volunteer assistant. He spent five seasons with Shocker head coach Todd Butler at Arkansas. His responsibilities at WSU include recruiting, hitting, catching, assisting with pitching and coaching third base.

During his three years at Arkansas, Walker helped the Razorbacks to three NCAA Tournament appearances and a College World Series appearance in 2012. The Razorbacks also entered the 2013 season as the number one team in the country.

As a coach, he organized hitting schools and developed summer, winter and spring camps, served as either the first base or third base coach, was the catching coach and assisted Butler with hitting.

As the catching coach, Walker was instrumental in developing Jake Wise and James McCann at Arkansas. During the 2012 season, Wise was one of the best defensive catchers in the country, not committing an error in 438 chances in 2012. Wise was also effective in slowing down the opposition’s running game as he threw out 17 would-be base stealers. Wise threw out 20 runners in 2013 and had just four errors for a .991 fielding percentage.

In his first season on the Arkansas coaching staff, Walker mentored McCann, one of the top catchers in collegiate baseball. McCann, who was named a semifinalist for the Johnny Bench Award, enjoyed his best season at the plate, finishing the year with a .306 batting average with six homers and 38 RBI. Defensively, McCann had a .992 fielding percentage, committing just four errors, while throwing out 20 would-be base stealers. McCann was a second round draft pick of the Detroit Tigers in the 2011 MLB Draft.

Walker joined the Arkansas coaching staff after spending four years in the Anaheim Angels minor league system. Walker closed the 2010 season with the Angels’ triple-A squad, Salt Lake City. In six games with Salt Lake City, he hit .300 with six RBI.

A three-year letterwinner at Arkansas (2005-07), Walker played in 164 games, including 145 starts, and hit .260 with 26 home runs and 98 RBI. Walker was stellar in the field for the Razorbacks, committing just five errors over his three-year career for a .996 fielding percentage. During his career, he played in three SEC Tournaments and three NCAA Tournaments and earned all-regional honors in 2005 and 2007. He also served as team captain in 2006 and 2007. He was drafted in the 29th round of the 2007 MLB Draft by the Anaheim Angels.

A native of Tulsa, Okla., and a graduate of Tulsa Union High School, Walker graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2010 with a degree in kinesiology. Walker and his wife, McKenzi, have two children, Claire (6) and Joseph (6).

I believe he was recruited by OSU and OU before going either JUCO route or signing with Arkansas.

I attended one of the regionals in Fayetteville and ORU won with Walton as the HC. ORU had a big and tall 1B that hit a bunch of HR and beat OSU, Arkansas, and an Ivy League School. Walker was somewhat of a character back then.

And a liar.
If you're going to lie and get caught and you find yourself embarrassed publicly, be sure to throw a huge child-like tantrum and see how much shame you can heap onto yourself in a short period of time.
That was like a scene out of a movie where the writer wants us to hate a specific character.
