: With the wolves nipping at his heels Esmay resigned today. He probably was left with no choice I'm guessing. He didn't have the success we would have hoped for but he conducted himself with a helluva lot more class than many "die hard" Devil fans have during this past season. I can't believe the level of dislike toward him especially after the season. I hope good candidates aren't scared off by the way his ass was unceremoniously run out of town after making the regionals. I know a regional appearance & done won't get it around here & I get that but it is total bullshit how he was treated on his way out.
: Well Ray get out your checkbook because some young up & comer or flash from the past ain't gonna get it here in "The most coveted ncaa baseball coaching job in the country" (at least that seems to be the general opinion over on the Scout Board). As far as how I feel about it I'm left with the wise words of my dear old dad who from time to time would tell me "be careful what you wish for, it might come true".
: Good luck Tim I hope you land on your feet, you will always be a good old Devil to me.
Tim Esmay always conducted himself with class. Some other school will be fortunate to hire him. He was just not the right guy for ASU.
I trust that Ray Anderson understands how critically important this hire will be.
In addition, with the roster expected to be here, this is not a rebuilding project. No need to rush, but we need a really good selection to be made.
