: : ASU is reportedly interviewing Charleston coach, Monte Lee.
: :: Don't know much about the guy but I don't think that's gonna resonate much with big time recruits on the west coast. Anderson needs to make a splash here. Maybe his strategy is to interview a few guys with different backgrounds (one or two older, more established coaches,one or two up and comers, etc.). This is a critical hire and I would hope the athletic department doesn't give everyone this line that the move to Muni will generate all this new revenue and then they go and hire someone based off the fact that they'll take the job at a lower salary than someone else. Some of these baseball alums that are in the big leagues need to get involved here and pony up some money to the baseball program. Ridiculous with the kind of money these guys are building that they can't contribute $50k or $100k. I would really like to see them bring in Schlossnagle but who knows if he even wants to leave.
Read his bio on the C of C website. Was recruiting coord at So Carolina for several years before moving on. Looks like he knows how to recruit and coach. Certainly meets the "young up and comer" mold. The concern would be a lack of west coast ties, but he's done well at previous stops. The experience at So Carolina should acclimate him to the expectations here.
