We’ve got a couple of coaching-related notes to pass along from Wednesday’s games. In Lubbock, Texas Tech beat Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 10-5 to earn Red Raiders coach Larry Hays his 1,500th career win. That puts him in pretty exclusive company: just Texas’ Augie Garrido, Wichita State’s Gene Stephenson and Florida State’s Mike Martin (who reached the mark earlier this year) have won as many games. The Lubbock Avalanche Journal had a nice piece about Hays in today’s paper.
Elsewhere, Florida International and Miami met for the first time since former Hurricanes assistant Turtle Thomas became the Golden Panthers’ head coach last summer, and Miami rolled to a 13-2 win. As the Miami Herald reports, the Hurricanes aren’t expected to schedule FIU again after this season, so the April 23 meeting between the two teams could be the last in a while. The ‘Canes and Panthers have met at least twice each season since FIU started its baseball program in 1973. Thomas told the Herald he would like to play Miami four times per year, but Miami coach Jim Morris put the kibosh on that.
"That’s not going to happen," he told the paper. He was noncommittal about whether he would terminate the series altogether.
"I haven’t done the schedule at this point,” Morris said–tersely, according to the Herald. "The only thing I got done is our ACC."
