Former LSU coach Paul Mainieri was on The Jerry Ratcliffe Show over the weekend and talked about Virginia coach Brian O’Connor succeeding him in Baton Rouge. Per The Advocate:
quote:

“I wish I could have talked him into leaving Virginia and coming to replace me at LSU, but he wouldn’t bite,” Mainieri said. “He loves it where he’s at. He loves Virginia. He wants to be the coach at Virginia and nowhere else.”

Mainieri considers O’Connor one of his closest friends. O’Connor, 50, worked as Mainieri’s top assistant for nine years at Notre Dame. When Mainieri coached the U.S. Collegiate National Team in the summer of 2018, he picked O’Connor as the pitching coach. They talk about once a week, Mainieri said.

Why would Corbin leave Vandy? Need to take risk on younger guy like coach from Michigan. Kids come to LSU for program not coach. With Crews Morgan and Thompson now is best time to take risk Bianco was coach at McNeese for only like 2 years before Ole Miss
