Before being promoted to associate head coach in June 2022, Haring served as an assistant coach and the recruiting coordinator on the BYU baseball staff for nine seasons. 

In his current role, Haring will continue to coordinate recruiting, work with Cougar infielders and oversee team defense. 

Haring has been part of a staff that has developed 29 All-WCC honorees, eight All-Region honorees, five Freshman All-Americans and two All-Americans. He has helped coach 18 players selected in the MLB Draft, including three—Jacob Hanneman, Jaycob Brugman and Michael Rucker—who have recently spent time in the majors. 

Under his guidance BYU has landed some of the top recruiting classes in program history, including the 2019 class ranked 25th in the country by Baseball America and 16th by D1 Baseball, the highest ranking in program history.

Since joining the program in the summer of 2012, Haring has helped BYU claim West Coast Conference regular season championships in 2016, 2017 and 2019. BYU advanced to the NCAA Tournament after the Cougars also won the WCC Tournament in 2017.

Haring has also served as head coach for the American Samoa National Team and its various divisions since 2010. In January 2019, the team defeated Australia, ranked No. 7 in the world, and took second place at the Oceania U-18 Baseball Championship in Guam.

Prior to BYU, Haring was an assistant coach at Dixie State for three seasons. He has also coached at Harding University, Mt. Olive College, College of the Ozarks and Southern Virginia. 

Haring played for Colorado Northwestern Junior College and at Southern Virginia where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physical education and recreation administration. He also holds a master’s degree in education/kinesiology from Harding University.

He and his wife Mary have two sons, Tomasi and Nikolao.
