And you thought the coaching carousel had ground to a halt now that it’s nearly November. Fat chance.
A day after Eastern Michigan coach Roger Coryell announced his retirement, prompting another national coaching search, UC Irvine announced the hiring of Ted Silva as pitching coach. Silva joins Mike Gillespie’s staff after spending a year as the pitching coach at Fresno State. Before that, he was a volunteer assistant at Cal State Fullerton. Now, Bulldogs coach Mike Batesole has a vacancy to fill on his staff.
The Anteaters also hired Jason Dietrich away from Cal State Los Angeles to be their director of baseball operations.
The situation at EMU, meanwhile, is an ugly one. The 60-year-old Coryell had just finished serving a 30-day suspension for misusing the school’s e-mail system–the school said he had inadvertently sent an objectionable message to supporters of the program–and upon becoming eligible to return he decided it was time to retire after 20 years at EMU. The school said assistant coach Del Young will serve as the interim head coach until a full-time hire is made.
