He’ll get you to the tournament, but surprised they would hire a coach with a winning % of only 60%

Numbers don’t tell the story. He turned around 2 programs that were floundering and started winning conference championships and could have one the 2019 CWS, plus he’s a phenomenal recruiter.
It tells a good portion of the story actually. I don’t disagree he may have helped get some programs back on track to an extent , but he has not shown he’s an elite coach that’s a “ splash hire “ as some say. He’s basically a solid hire with things to be determined going forward.

Not dissimilar from Kingston

The new Clemson AD seems to be a spin master of the highest level. He claimed that the guy from Michigan was his target from day one. But maybe day one started in his mind after he made hard overtures to the ND coach.

That is a very good record coming from a very cold weather school , plus his first college coaching job was at taterland . IMO, he will do a good job and be better for that program.
