Louisville coach Dan McDonnell says rumors wrong, he will listen if LSU calls
It's ludicrous if this is accurate and McDonnell hasn't been contacted by LSU. Woody, please make this happen! Per Louisville Courier Journal (subscription-based):
quote:

If LSU calls, Dan McDonnell will listen. And how could he not? There are certain doors you don’t close before learning where they might lead.

But the University of Louisville’s baseball coach says he’s not waiting on a call from Cajun country, is not “hunting” the LSU job, has not spoken to university officials and has not made a recent trip to Baton Rouge, despite what you may have heard.

“I don’t know how that started,” McDonnell said Wednesday afternoon. “Anything I heard from a third party, it was, ‘Hey, I’m not going there. I’m not discussing it. I’ve got nothing to say.’ I cut it off quick cause I didn’t like the rumor itself. That’s where it stopped or stalled. That’s as far as it’s gone.”

It's at least conceivable things could go farther. Though DI Baseball reports former Oregon State coach Pat Casey has emerged as the front-runner to replace LSU's retiring Paul Mainieri, McDonnell is said to be high on the short list for one of the most coveted jobs in college baseball.

McDonnell admits a strong affinity for traditions traced to former LSU coach Skip Bertman. “I think there are jobs out there that out of respect you’re curious to listen,” McDonnell said. “I think it’s healthy to listen, so I would never say I wouldn’t listen to somebody to talk about their situation.”

Mind games with Sully, no interest in Vitello, haven't contacted McDonnell, Casey and Bianco are front runners...

McDonnell's way of saying, "DON'T DO IT, SCOTT. CALL ME!"

Looks like Scott’s “playing hard to get game” worked.

Someone that is locked in at a school doesn’t say that

Could he raise his hand any higher and scream "PICK ME! PICK ME!"

Maybe I'm paranoid but that feels almost too direct. Could be leveraging the situation for more at UL.

Well, you see, we have the 2021 LSU baseball team still playing. You can’t hire a new coach while the current team is still fighting for a championship.

No new hire will be announced until after both LSU and the new coach’s current season is over.

Id normally agree, but they absolutely could do it before the season is over. And they very well may with Casey

I’m really hoping all these other names are just smoke and McDonnell, Godwin, and vitello are the real list

It's McDonnell. He's letting the air out of the tires in Louisville.

Interesting how this McDonnell "potential interest" statement was released just a couple hours after the Casey story broke. I doubt this timing was a coincidence.

How would that not causing unnecessary distraction to the current team?
