    Re: USM baseball expected to hire Ostrander

    A very poor exchange for Tech baseball. We lost an experienced pitching coach (who will coach against us in C-USA next season) and replaced him with a lightly experienced one in Protho. Same deal losing hitting coach Zulli and promoting Creel as his replacement. I'm sure we 'saved some salary money' on these changes though.

    most of our fans did not like the way our hitting or pitching went this year. I didn't care for Zulli as a third base coach.

    We will see what Burroughs can do with these younger asst coaches. Watching several interviews with Ostrander it appeared he was very frustrated with Burroughs' game management of his pitchers. Christian commented several times "That is what coach (Burroughs) wanted to do" on some very questionable game decisions. I hope we aren't dealing with a micromanaging ego issue at Head Baseball Coach. Driving your veteran assistants away for young "yes" men is a great formula for failure.

    Apparently, neither did HCLB.

    He has plenty of experience. I know a kid that was just drafted from USA as a pitcher and credits Protho for developing him. He doesn't have head coach experience like Ostrander did, but he is great from what I hear.

    With a name like that ... he's gotta be top shelf.

    Any idea who the top candidates are? && why Prothro is now out? Seemed like Prothro has a good past as a pitching coach, South Alabama is always a regional contender.

    No idea, but plenty of coaches would love to move up to Tech. Prothro was a good one, but apparently he was a wishy washy and our HC had enough of the drama.

    I'll say it so PawDawg doesn't have to...

    - Burroughs
    - Barton (assoc HC, pitching)
    - Creel (hitting, recruiting)
    - Knight (volunteer)
    - Jon. Washam (GA)
