The Trojans are 12-19 and has not made the NCAA Tournament since 2005. So I might as well again suggest USC rehire Mike Gillespie. He is currently 20-8 at UC Irvine and would know how to succeed at a private school with scholarship limits, which A.D. Pat Haden recently referred to as a “conundrum,” when describing baseball.
Gillespie’s had a lot of success at Irvine and someone will point out it is a public school. But he’s already proved he can win at USC (national champions in 1998), so why not bring him back?
