Notre Dame Hires Red Bank’s Trey Hicks as New Head Baseball Coach


Chattanooga-(WDEF) Notre Dame introduced Trey Hicks as their new head baseball coach on Wednesday.
Hicks is a Red Bank graduate, who served as the Lions head coach the last six years, and he was an assistant coach at Red Bank prior to that.
Now he’ll try to turn around an Irish team that won only five games last season.
Said Hicks,”It’s different. I’ve been used to being at Red Bank for about nine years. So it will be completely different. Kind of a short in the arm for something. Something to kind of put my stamp on here at Notre Dame.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
