New USC baseball coach Jason Gill has hired former Nebraska assistant Ted Silva as an assistant coach.
They were teammates at Cal State Fullerton and spent 2011 together at Loyola Marymount. USC fans might remember Silva as the winning pitcher for Cal State Fullerton in its 11-5 victory over USC in the 1995 College World Series championship game.
Gill is also expected to retain USC assistant coach Gabe Alvarez from the previous coaching staff.
