Here is legendary USC baseball coach Rod Dedeaux talking to second baseman Mike Gillespie in 1962. Gillespie succeeded Dedeaux and won a national title in 1998.
USC needs to find a way to regain the tradition that these coaches instilled. It has one NCAA Tournament appearance since Gillespie was fired in 2006. USC has unique challenges as a private school with baseball’s scholarship limitations but private schools like Stanford and Vanderbilt are doing better.
You need to right coach. And there is little to suggest at this point Lynn Swann will know what to do. The only hope is that his underlings are able to find the right coach.
