Gierlach served as an assistant coach for Rice in the 2013-14 season after being named video coordinator and director of player development in 2012-13.
The Rice alumnus began his career as a four-year student manager with the program. As Video Coordinator and Director of Player Development, Gierlach's responsibilities included creating comprehensive breakdowns of video and cutups for opponent scouting, assisting in the development of scouting reports as well as coordinating film exchange.
