SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - Texas State baseball coach Ty Harrington says he is taking a temporary leave of absence from the team while getting treatment for rectal cancer.

Harrington was first diagnosed in 2014. In a statement released by the school Thursday, Harrington says he plans to return to his team when he is healthy and feels “strong enough.”

Harrington says managing coaching while undergoing cancer treatments was harder than he expected.

Assistant Jeremy Fikac will take over as interim head coach.

Harrington is in his 16th season at Texas State and has a record of 507-381-1.
