Does the future of baseball coach Chad Kreuter rest on financial concerns? USC is currently paying former assistant football coaches Pat Ruel and Brennan Carroll for another year as well as whatever fee it paid to buy out Lane Kiffin’s contract. On top of that, there were the hefty salaries paid to Kififn’s coaching staff, such as Monte Kiffin and Ed Orgeron.
So is there a lack of will to find the money to pay off Kreuter?
Arizona State is the nation’s top seed in the NCAA baseball pairings. UCLA is hosting a regional. And UC Irvine faces defending champion LSU in the first round. Baseball can flourish in the Pac-10 and Southern California, apparently.
The Trojans use a seven-run eighth inning to end the season with a victory. USC finished the season 28-32 and 7-20 in the Pac-10. Coach Chad Kreuter is 111-117 in four seasons, including 39-63 in the Pac-10.
Now the question is whether he returns next season?
