Looks like some names are popping up. Andy Sawyers (K-State / Texas A&M assistant), Mike McGuire (Moorhead State HC), and Drew Dickinson (Illinois assistant) among others. Anyone have thoughts on these candidates?
Was at the Caps game last night and heard there was another candidate, not on this list, that is the front-runner? apparently, he's a pitching coach at a southern school either in Missisippi or Alabama?
seems like Sawyers jumps around a lot?
Maguire would be OK, I guess?
It's Sawyers! Apparently it wasn't a unanimous decision, but let's see what this guy can do?
Where did you hear its Sawyer's and that it was not unanimous. If Sawyers, good - for McGuire it would be a lateral move, Sawyer is moving up to a HC position - that is what I like - Now who is his hitting coach and what does he teach?
Kendall Rogers on his D-1 Baseball.com twitter page says,according to his sources, Sawyers has been hired.
Great, can you send link or screenshot. The more I read I like the hire...
Sorry,don't know how to do that.
Kendall Rogers -
BREAKING: #KState's Andy Sawyers (prev A&M/Nebraska) has been hired as the next head coach at @SEMObaseball, sources tell @d1baseball. #SEMO
Kendall Rogers - Really happy for Andy Sawyers. One of the better guys in the game, and it sounds like #SEMO is making a very solid commitment.
Thanks for the link. Just saw youtube video on him "Hot Seat" KSU - does seem like a good personality to play for. Also has agressive style :).
Now let's see if SEMO will step up on assistant coaches salaries?
The trick is going to be to find a good pitching coach . It looks like Sawyers background is all hitting .
Sawyers has coached all over so I would assume he has good connections in the coaching world. I'm sure he will bring in a good pitching coach (at least I hope).
Will his press conference be televised tomorrow?
Ovc digital network
Impressive guy! A lot of the same qualities of Bieser.
You would think if he was going to retain Borgschulte, he would have already done it?
I heard Borgschulte has another job offer, so it looks like there will be a new hitting coach.
Hope he gets a chance to stay, wonder why Beiser did not offer him a position with Mizzu?
Really no place for him at Mizzou. Bieser hired Dillon Lawson as his hitting coach, and he is actually considered a Volunteer Assistant since D1 only allows 2 paid assistants. Rhodes is the Recruiting Coordinator and Hallmark is the pitching coach.
I heard that another OVC school has offered Borgschulte a position as hitting coach.
Hope he is offered and stays. Would bridge gap between coaching staffs and seems like both have sumilar play style.
Heard they hired a new pitching coach. No word on who it is?
Correction! They hired a new hitting coach.
Borgshulte out then?
Where did you hear about a new hitting coach?
Borgsculte gone. All I know is that the new guy is a former colleague of Sawyers. Not totally unexpected? Not sure if SEMO will stick with the pitch recognition thing? I would hope so!
PItching Coach looks like a good hire!
Pretty sure they also hired a new hitting coach. Maybe waiting for his former school to announce that he is leaving?
Should be this week.
Does practice start today?
Not a huge fan of the hitting coach hire.
Why not a fan? I know a guy he played college ball with who said has good character. Just curious on the style and how they handle the different styles. Just hope they leave what works alone.
He probably is a great guy, wouldn't be hired otherwise. Just not a fan because of his credentials, but it could end up being a great hire.
Yep, we will see. Just hope he is not a "swing down" small ball type across the board type.
From what I have heard, Ringe (hitting coach) and assistants are well liked.
