"They've done a lot of good things here, so I'm just looking to add on to that," Allen said. "Then obviously the recruiting, which is a huge, huge piece."
Allen takes over for Eric Snider, who left to become the hitting coach and recruiting coordinator at Louisville. Head coach Dan Hartleb says Allen has been on his list of candidates long before Snider left town.
"Spencer's been a person that's been on my list for a number of years," said Hartleb. "He's a quality person, a quality recruiter, and a great coach."
