Another baseball de-commitment
Ty Madden - 2018 RHP Cy Ranch (Coach Pope's former player) flips to Texas. Huge loss. Extremely talented pitcher. Karlgaard needs to settle the uncertainty. It's killing recruiting. First Rivera (2019) and now Madden.

Yeah I was surprised to hear this too. We do need to hire a quality new coach ASAP.

But then again, JK has had a lot to deal with as our staff turnover this summer has been very high (men's basketball, women's basketball assistants, a couple of football coaches, women's tennis assistant which still hasn't been filled or announced). And those are just the coaches (and I'm probably missing 1 or 2).

JK shouldn't have anything to do with those. His responsibility is the head coaching positions which seem to be a problem for both football and baseball currently.

Agreed...unless, of course, we're hiring a coach in waiting for baseball. He simply has to make a decision regarding Wayne's contract situation ASAP. Until he does so, we're not going to find a quality assistant coach.

Agreed....and we will continue to lose recruits over it.

Graham needs to be fired if he refuses to cooperate. You can still get a quality HC at this juncture. See Cannizzaro/MSU

I strongly doubt that cooperation is an issue.

I don't... he's stated he wants to be extended. Makes it hard to bring in a head coach in waiting that will takeover after next year.

That's not a 'hc in waiting'... It's a lame duck current HC and a guy on the bench who can still leave you high and dry... and everyone puts a target on you to do just that.

You extend Wayne and name a successor/Associate Head Coach or whatever... and if Wayne keeps doing well and wants to keep going and the guy gets tired of waiting, you hire another successor. If Wayne doesn't want to stay and/or fails, you reassign him within the department and elevate the other guy.

That's how 'real' programs do it.... and Wayne's earned every dime for every sport on campus of whatever he wants to be reassigned to for however many years that is.
