Is your confirmation this tweet? Or something else?

Ha, Sorenson is a friend of mine. I'm actually his "rocksolid source."

Ty has already announced it to the baseball staff and interviews to replace him have begun. No idea why there hasn't been a public announcement.

Steven Trout will probably get offered the job because he graduated from TCU.

Hearing to expect an email soon and press conference tomorrow.

You think Trout is a serious candidate or is that tongue-in-cheek?

Names we've thrown out at the other site that we'd think would get consideration:
Matt Deggs
Derek Matlock
Kirk Saarloos
Pat Hallmark

Shit hadn't heard that. Good hire for them probably.

Kirk Saarloos is not coming here. He'd be taking a paycut if he did. He'll go to a major school if he leaves TCU.

I would be fine with Matlock coming back. He's a good guy and a great coach. That we had our best success while he was here is not a coincidence. Neither is the fact that we spiraled down after he left.

Deggs does have a nice resume.

I would love to see us go after Tripp Couch, who took an assistant job at South Carolina a couple of years ago. Things aren't so smooth there any more, and he might be willing to take a pay cut to run a program in his home state.

I thought Harrington still had a good 3-5 years left, but he's doing the right thing for the program by leaving a solid roster for the next coach to come along.

New coach will have to build a brand new weekend rotation with all 3 drafted this year (McMahon, Fraze, Reich). That could be a difficult rebuild for the next guy from a starting pitching perspective.

“I chaired the search committee when Ty was hired 20 years ago,” Texas State athletics director Larry Teis. “Ty mentioned to me six weeks ago that he has been a head coach all his life and wanted to try something new. I tried to talk him out of retirement then and did so up until the end.”


So now he tried to talk both Fran and Ty out of retiring. I guess that's easier than hiring someone to replace them.
