UNLV will play two doubleheaders over the next two weekends as part of its fall practice schedule.
Jarvis follows Fox from the University of Texas-Arlington, where he served as Fox's assistant from 2013-16 before being promoted to associate head coach prior to the 2017 season.
Together, Fox and Jarvis led the Mavericks to five consecutive conference tournament appearances and most recently their first postseason berth since 2003 as the team played in the National Invitational Softball Championship after a 32-win campaign last season. The 2017 season was also one of the best offensively in program history, with Jarvis helping the Mavericks set marks for runs scored, hits, and RBI, while posting the second-highest batting average all-time.
The Renton, Washington native played baseball at Oregon State, where he was a four-year starter and three-time All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention selection. Jarvis remains in seven Oregon State all-time career top-10 record books and still owns 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.
After playing professionally at the minor league level for two seasons, Jarvis spent five seasons as a volunteer assistant baseball coach at Texas Tech, working with his former college coach Dan Spencer, who was the Red Raiders' associate head coach. During his time at TTU, the Red Raiders won 140 games, including 36 over ranked opponents, and saw 28 players selected in the Major League Draft.
Fox and Jarvis have one one son, Andrew (1), and another baby on the way.
