After roughly a month off, Luna Community College head baseball coach Peter Ortiz is back on the job, the school reports.
“Peter Ortiz has been reinstated as baseball coach at Luna Community College,” said Jesse Gallegos, LCC’s public information officer, in a written statement issued late last week. “He had been on administrative leave. Additional steps are being taken to improve our athletic programs.”
Ortiz had been placed on leave for unspecified reasons, with assistant coach Antonio Siqueiros replacing him in the interim. The school did not initially characterize Ortiz’s leave as either a termination or other type of leave.
The Rough Riders’ next series is scheduled for this weekend at Lubbock Christian.
