re: Vitello: no communication w/ LSU but sidesteps whether he'll be at 10RC next season - JPLSU1981
He was supposedly asked directly if he’ll be the head coach at Tennessee next season and didn’t answer [link=(https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-coach-Tony-Vitello-claims-no-contact-so-far-with-LSU-about-vacancy-166869184/)]LINK[/link]...

re: It's Vitello - JPLSU1981
Just thinking out loud here… if LSU is indeed after Corbin or Johnson (or someone else), these contract numbers about Vitello/LSU could be Vitello’s agent using the final couple of hours/days available - before LSU announces a hire - to push Tennessee’s offer up. Obviously once LSU makes its hire...

re: Say the guy ends up being Johnson from Arizona - JPLSU1981
[quote]Johnson is more likely to have success here, but his three down seasons after the title are concerning. LSU is not a place where that is acceptable.[/quote] He could do very well at LSU and I certainly hope he does if he’s indeed the choice. But if he replicated those first 4 Arizona ye...

re: Who is logjamming LSU and why is he so confident - JPLSU1981
I found what you speak of…. [quote]I can confirm this. Vitello has agreed to terms with LSU. $2.7 million per year. Staff salary will be in the $2-$3 million range between pitching, hitting, and recruiting coordinator. Only issue is whether Josh Elander joins Vitello in Baton Rouge or tries to ...

re: Say the guy ends up being Johnson from Arizona - JPLSU1981
From what I’ve seen, he’s generally well-received on here. A few have said pretty adamantly that it’s gonna be Johnson. I personally would prefer Vitello/McDonnell/Corbin over Johnson. Johnson seems like a risky hire to me...

re: Why is Jay Johnson a candidate? - JPLSU1981
I won’t melt, just definitely think we have better options than Johnson. You have been saying for days that it’s gonna be Johnson. You have connections/sources or is that just your prediction? I’ll get on board with any hire in relatively short order whether I like the hire or not. ...

re: Why is Jay Johnson a candidate? - JPLSU1981
I just do not want Johnson. I can’t think of any examples of good/great coaches declining their first 4 seasons on a major job If you have some examples to the contrary, please point them out, I just can’t think of any...

re: All signs point to....Vitello - JPLSU1981
Yeah I’m not convinced LSU has Vitello at 1 or 2 on their list, but there’s no way Vitello turns down a destination CBB job. He’s gone the first time LSU or Arky or Texas offers, if that ever happens....

re: Now that we know it isn’t Bianco - JPLSU1981
Fair enough, but one has to be concerned with taking over a program and seeing it steadily decline the first 4 years. Great coaches don’t typically do that in their first four years. Their first year is usually their worst and the program gets gradually/consistently better....
