    Met Ex-Tech Pitching coach

    I recently moved to Hattiesburg and while running into my neighborhood I met Christian Ostrander. He noted my Tech shirt and filled me in on who he was. Had nothing but good things to say about Tech. I wish we could hang on to quality coaches.

    I remember wanting Tech to hire Ostrander before Burroughs got the job

    We didn't lose him. He chose to move away from the "co HC" position our goof ball AD gave him.

    Our goof ball AD did that. I won't say Ostrander would have been better than LB. We will never know. What we do know is that Ostrander was chosen to be the coach by most Tech baseball peeps and our AD decided to go to NSU and get an unproven coach.

    Unproven coach? He has proven he can't make the NCAAs.

    I was lukewarm about that hire. I did pose the question at the time of: what is it in his resume' that makes LB worthy of the Tech job? No one on this forum ever posted a response. I took that to mean the answer was "nothing." No wait...one poster defended the hire saying LB had inherited a mess at NSU and had had a couple of winning seasons there. Okay. But there are many other coaches who did that and more elsewhere.

    I am not anti-LB. I'm just not on that bandwagon either.

    I'm sure that was a well thought out contract in EllAyeTech's favor. Unbelievable!

    Brooke also got one (and I like Brooke!) despite zero results. Not sure how long.

    Honor is earned, not given!

    Yes, I like her too. She is probably the only genuine coach we have and should have been our AD's first hire, instead of the pervert he hired and hid for months before he FINALLY fired him.

    Our AD made a big deal out of holding on to LB and listed all his accomplishments at Tech except us getting in a regional.

    What did he do to hold on to him? Nothing. A new 5 year deal with the same money he was earning before. It won't prevent any team who wants him from hiring him away. It's doubtful that the great negotiator put a buyout in place.

    What team that's a step of from us would want him?
