LSU Hires New Baseball Coach!

Paul Mainieri has just become the 25th head baseball coach at LSU. Former LSU baseball coach and now A.D. Skip Bertman went on a 3 week nationwide search to find a replacement for Smoke Laval who was fired after falling to make the regionals this year. This was the first year in 18 that the Tigers didn't make the regionals.

Following Skip's legacy ain't easy. 5 National Championships in 10 years!

What I find so cool is that LSU got a head coach from the "almighty" Notre Dame University. Unbelievable! Who would have thought that a "successful" head coach would leave ND to come to LSU? Not me.
Another cool fact is that he played baseball and met his future wife while attending LSU his freshmen year. He later transferred to Miami Dade JC so he could play for his dad who was the head baseball coach at that time.
