LSU head coach Paul Mainieri confirmed this week that former player Sean Ochinko is no longer on the staff.

Ochinko played at LSU from 2007-09, helping the Tigers win the National Championship in 2009. He served as LSU's volunteer hitting coach the past two seasons.

Mainieri has yet to comment on the report that Tulane assistant Eddie Smith is replacing Ochinko as the teams new hitting coach. Per The Advocate:

LSU coach Paul Mainieri on Monday confirmed via text message previous reports that Ochinko is leaving the LSU staff.

Mainieri declined to comment on reports that Tulane assistant coach Eddie Smith, a former player under Mainieri at Notre Dame, will be taking Ochinko’s place.

"Mainieri declined to comment on reports that Tulane assistant coach Eddie Smith" It's on their Instagram... so why decline comment.

He was compensated very well for being a “volunteer.”

Huge blow for the tigers. Look for LSU to struggle to make a regional next season now. Ochinko is a hell of a coach.
