Baseball America is reporting that South Carolina is targeting former LSU head coach Paul Mainieri to be the teams new head coach.

South Carolina recently fired Mark Kingston who had been the head coach of the Gamecocks since 2017.

Multiple sources on Monday told Baseball America that South Carolina is targeting Paul Mainieri as its next head coach. As of yet, there is no confirmation that a deal is in place.

Mainieri, who won the 2009 national championship at LSU, has been out of baseball for the last three seasons after retiring as the Tigers coach following the 2021 season.

Mainieri, 66, would bring an impressive pedigree. He was a head coach for 39 seasons at LSU, Notre Dame, Air Force and St. Thomas (Fla.) and ranks eighth all-time in wins with 1,505. Mainieri led LSU to the national championship in 2009 and a runner-up finish in 2017. He is one of 13 coaches to lead two different programs to the College World Series and was named Baseball America Coach of the Year in 2009.

I’ll be rooting for Paul and his son to have a bonding moment soon again in the Omaha dugout BUT this time they both will be wearing Garnett & Black.

I hope Paul and Jay are both staples in Omaha in June for years to come.

It’s all true. Some tiger fans think we should win the nattie every year. College baseball isn’t at up that way any longer.

How can any Tiger fan wish nothing but the best for Paul Mainieri? Why all the hate?

Because he dragged the program down those last few years especially in recruiting. Look at the roster especially LHP and you’ll find why people were pissed.
