Question from Marc
Mac,
After college, how many players of yours go on to be coaches at any level in baseball? Do you encourage guys to stay in baseball after college, if so what is their best route for becoming a GA at a good baseball school. Good luck this year and February needs to hurry up.

Happy

Response from Head Coach John McCormack
Marc,
Thank you for your email. At this time we have about 15 former players working in baseball as coaches and scouts. The NCAA does not allow us to have graduate assistants anymore so that cuts down on the amount of people who are exposed to the coaching profession. I do encourage our players to coach if they want to, but as you know Marc there are a limited number of jobs and the pay scale for entry level positions is very poor. I do agree I am looking forward to February as well.

John McCormack
