I’m hearing UC Santa Barbara baseball coach Andrew Checketts has rebuffed USC’s efforts to hire him.
If USC really wants Checketts, it will need to regroup and improve its package. And when I say package, I mean assistant coach salaries, staff positions, recruiting budget, etc.
Meanwhile, former major-leaguer/Texas assistant coach Troy Tulowitzki told Austin-American Statesman columnist Kirk Bohls he will interview for the job.
“I will be talking to them,” Tulowitzki said. “I have not made any decision. I loved my time at Texas and living in Austin.”
