Q: If this year’s baseball team doesn’t make the NCAA Tournament – and that would be the second time in three seasons – will Chad Holbrook be back as head coach?

A: I’m not going to answer that, but I’ll tell you that baseball is not any different than any of our other sports in that at the end of the season you always have an evaluation with your coaches. That kind of talk is premature; there’s still a lot of baseball left this season.

Q: When you went from baseball coach to AD in 2012 the model for a move like that was LSU’s Skip Bertman, who, like you, won some College World Series titles before they made him AD. And Skip eventually had to fire his successor, Smoke Laval, before looking to the Midwest for another coach, Paul Mainieri, who led LSU back to a national title. Have you talked with Skip about that stuff recently?

A: I have not talked to him about my job as it relates to our baseball program. I’ve talked to him about the AD role and he’s shared some things with me – some things he did right and some things he did wrong. He shared some important nuggets. He cares about me as a person and the role I’m in and I’m extremely grateful for that.
