I don’t understand why you would leave an MLB team in the middle of a season. Couldn’t he have finished out the season then joined LSU in October? I don’t understand the thinking here.

Congratulations coach Jay. I get the feeling from all the chats, social media, Colatta and Miked Up that you're really proactive and pushing Al the right buttons. So impressed with what you've been able to do the last year so far

If you're trying to speak directly to Coach Jay you should try an email instead. I highly doubt he will ever read this lol

He recently coached at Arky & Miss St. Majors may not have been for him.

I imagine he wants a college HC job and will very likely have one in a few years
