MARYSVILLE, CALIFORNIA: The Marysville Gold Sox have just been informed that Field Manager, Dallas Correa, will not be able to coach in 2018 due to NCAA coaching eligibility guidelines.
According to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), a paid coach cannot be affiliated with another baseball club outside of one hundred miles of the current university he/she is employed at (see Bylaw 184.108.40.206 and Bylaw 220.127.116.11.2.1 below).
“I am very thankful for the opportunity and trust that you all gave me to lead the Gold Sox. You all gave me the opportunity to become one of the youngest collegiate baseball Head Coaches in the nation at the age of 23 and that experience was priceless” says Correa.
“We are very disappointed that Dallas will not be with us in 2018 but we wish him future success in baseball and at Hawaii Pacific University. Dallas did a great job for the team and the character of his players were at an all-time high for the Gold Sox. Sometimes in sports, you’re only measured by wins and losses, and even though we came up short in 2017, Dallas and our players were winners in my book and were a credit to this organization. He will be missed by many as his personality and work ethic were infectious to everyone around him. May he be blessed in his career of baseball and he will always be part of the Gold Sox family, including my personal family,” says VP/GM Michael Mink.
*Bylaw 18.104.22.168 Local Sports Clubs. In sports other than basketball, an institution's coach may be involved as a participant or in instructional or coaching activities in the same sport for a local sports club or organization located in the institution's home community, provided all prospective student athletes participating in said activities are legal residents of the area (within a 100-mile radius of the institution). Further, in club teams involving multiple teams or multiple sports, the 100-mile radius is applicable only to the team with which the institution's coach is involved; however, it is not permissible for the coach to assign a prospective student-athlete who lives outside the 100-mile area to another coach of the club. A coach may be involved with a local sports club located in the institution's home community that includes prospective student-athletes participating in a sport other than the coach's sport, regardless of where such prospective student-athletes reside. A coach also may be involved in activities with individuals who are not of prospective student athlete age (i.e., before the ninth grade), regardless of where such individuals reside.

22.214.171.124.2.1 Involvement of Coaching Staff. No member of the coaching staff of a member institution may be involved in any capacity (e.g., coach, official, player or league/team administrator) at any time (i.e., during the academic year, vacation periods and summer) with an outside team that involves any student-athlete with remaining eligibility from that institution's baseball team except as provided under Bylaws 14.7.5, 126.96.36.199.1 and 17.29.
