Ty Rogers begins his first season as an assistant coach at Oakland in 2012-13. Rogers will work with recruiting and infielders in addition to assisting with the offense.

Prior to joining Oakland, Rogers spent last season as an assistant at Bradley where he was in charge of the outfield defense, assisted with the hitters, and coached first-base on game days. Under his instruction, freshman centerfielder Max Murphy was named to the 2012 Louisville Slugger All-American team, which is selected by the Collegiate Baseball newspaper. In 2012, the Braves hit 46 home runs with a .398 team slugging percentage, which both ranked top three in the Missouri Valley Conference. Prior to his time at Bradley, Rogers spent a year as an assistant coach at Parkland College in Champaign, Ill. During his time at Parkland, Rogers was responsible for recruiting and infield defense, while working extensively with the hitters. In his time with the Cobras, Rogers saw 16 players sign with 4-year schools and the team earned a preseason #8 national ranking heading into the season.

A graduate of Lafayette (Ind.) Jefferson High School, Rogers played collegiately at Indiana where he was a starter at second base or centerfield. Among his highlights with the Hoosiers, Rogers helped Indiana breeze through the 2009 Big Ten Tournament to win the program's first conference championship since 1996 and earn a spot in the NCAA Louisville Regional. A former All-Big Ten player at Indiana, Rogers led the team with 15 doubles in 2009, helping Indiana to a 16-7 (.696) regular-season record in Big Ten conference play. When Indiana reached the Big Ten tournament, the offense hit .411 and bashed 16 doubles, both tourney records. An All-Big Ten Conference selection in 2010, Rogers finished seventh in the Big Ten with a .377 batting average that season and he was the league's leading hitter in conference play with a .427 average. His performance at the plate in 2010 also helped Indiana (.328) become the only NCAA Division I school from 2008-10 to post a team batting average of .325 or higher. Also in 2010, the Hoosiers set a team record with 85 home runs on the year, a total that finished 25th nationally. Rogers posted the seventh-best career batting average (.349) in program history. He still holds the IU record for most RBIs in a conference game, from his six-RBI effort against Michigan.

Following his collegiate career, Rogers played professional baseball with the Gateway Grizzlies and the Oakland County Cruisers of the Frontier League.

In high school, Rogers played summer baseball for the prestigious Cincinnati Midland and Indiana Bulls organizations.
