Brock is entering his second season at Georgetown after spending three seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Toledo. Brock assists in all aspects of the program, but his main responsibility is working with the infielders. He also helps coordinate the Hoyas' diverse offering of baseball camps.

At Toledo, Brock helped lead the Rockets to the team's first appearance in the Mid-American Tournament since 1999, and only their fourth trip since 1981. As the infield coach, the 2005, 2006 and 2007 teams ranked first, second and third for assists in school history, with the 2006 team finishing 12th in the nation, averaging 1.15 double plays per game.

During the 2002 season, the Gaels tied the school record for wins in the West Coast Conference (WCC) and turned 64 double plays on the season and had the highest per game mark in the NCAA that season.

While at Saint Mary's, Brock coached three players - third baseman Mark Teahen (supplemental 1st round, Oakland A's), outfielder Jason Waugh (11th round, Toronto Blue Jays) and shortstop Brett Wayne (22nd round, Los Angeles Dodgers) - who were selected in the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft. He also worked with catcher Nick Conte, who was drafted in the 13th round by the San Francisco Giants in 2003.

Prior to his coaching stint at Saint Mary's, Brock was an assistant coach for the Danville Dans (Danville, Ill.) in 2001 and helped coach Danville's championship summer team of the Central Illinois Collegiate League (CICL).

A native of Colorado, Brock played two years professionally in the Arizona Diamondbacks' organization in 2001. He started his career at Class A South Bend (Ind.) before moving to AA El Paso for one season.

Brock was a four-year letterwinner at Notre Dame from 1995-98 and graduated with a Bachelor of Sciences in mathematics. He served as the team captain during the 1997 and 1998 seasons. The 1997 Fighting Irish squad won the Big East regular season championship. Brock started 238 games in the infield and was the team's MVP as a senior. He was also named a first-team All-Big East shortstop in 1998 and was named a GTE Academic All-District selection as both a junior and as a senior.

Before his coaching stops at St. Mary's and Danville, Brock earned a master's degree in physical education athletic administration at Ohio University from 2000-01. While at Ohio, he spent one season working with the Bobcats' outfielders and hitters as a graduate assistant coach.
