For some reason, some people think that an AD of a D1 school goes into a situation such as a coaching search, without any idea what is going on out there. That is just not true. Especially with Coach Tanner. He had the hiring of our football coach mapped out a week after The HBC retired.

Ray was a great baseball coach, but I'm not convinced he will turn out to be a great AD.

Reports coming in that Assoc. Head Coach at Louisville, Roger Williams, is being interviewed. Would be a great hire.

I'd try to avoid these sort of hires BUT Williams resume looks excellent and he's just as much a reason for Louisville's success as McDonnell.

Landon may be good down the road but I think he needs to get more experience before given the keys to a program such as this, similar to how Monte paid his dues.

The interesting thing about Kingston is that his resume can be looked at as similar to Monte's, but because he's not been to Omaha, folks don't want him. And some of those same folks think Monte should be given an interview.
I don't think that a USC alum would automatically make a better coach, but there seems to be some thought that a UNC alum would be better. I mean...we had a UNC athletic director, a UNC baseball coach (who did not work out and kept getting blown out....by UNC) and now we are looking at another UNC coach? At least an alum would have his heart in the right place. Plus a USC alum would have an actual education - as opposed to athlete that has gone to UNC in the last 25 years.

Kingston has more experience than Landon Powell, but Powell has been a head coach for three years at North Greenville, where he has been very successful (22 win improvement in his first year). Plus he has pro playing experience (like Kingston).

Catchers usually make great managers, and he knows the recruiting footprint well, being from North Carolina, plus playing and coaching in South Carolina. He has name recognition, which helps. And he learned from one of the best in Ray Tanner.

If it came down to Landon or Kingston, I'd go with Landon.

Just stop mentioning Landon Powell. He's not even being considered.

I agree. If a coach can get the job done I couldn't care less about any affiliation to UNC.

Look, (yes, I started with look), Tanner is learing on the job about the hiring process of big time athlectcs. He didnt handle the football hiring process well, but did get the right guy. This hire is in his wheelhouse. He may not be able to get the top guy on his list, but he knows more about the available coaches than anybody. Let him go through the process and get the right guy. Again.

We are South Carolina. Can;t we find someone with South Carolina ties, or at least someone with ties to Tanner? Instead of a generic coach that was a North Carolina player? I would rather get Landon Powell.
It's baseball....it doesn't matter who we hire, it isn't going to make a huge difference initially in season tickets.

Doesn't matter that he's a former Tarheel.

As for current coaches with ties to Ray, there aren't a lot. Landon is in no way ready to take over a SEC program, and Ray isn't going to put him in that situation. You have to remember, Landon was the batboy at NC State as a kid, Ray has known him a long time. He's not going to set him up to fail.

Most SC baseball fans actually know very little about college baseball as a whole...there may be a lot of mistakenly disappointed fans when he makes his decision as HBC.

He is Tanner's choice, but there are significant obstacles to overcome. It will be incredibly difficult and expensive to get him and his staff. I personally would do it but there are no guarantees. Florida will match anything that we offer, that will be hard to overcome.

"Money is no object" is something that is just said when trying to attract candidates to talk to us. Not that we wouldn't spend a lot of money, but that doesn't mean there isn't no limit.

I don't have sources like many of you. However, I do know some people around the TN baseball program (from the past) and in speaking with them they say Sully is the guy. We'll see if they are correct.
