New to the Board...look forward to posting more. Here is the release from North Carolina (long)

from UNC Athletic Communications
UNC Athletics wrote:CHAPEL HILL --- Former UNC pitcher Bryant Gaines has been hired as the North Carolina pitching coach, head coach Mike Fox announced Wednesday. Gaines, a two-time captain for the Tar Heels, returns to Chapel Hill following two seasons as the pitching coach at Liberty under former UNC assistant coach Scott Jackson. Gaines spent nine seasons as a member of the North Carolina Tar Heel program, five as a player and four as an assistant coach, and during his time North Carolina advanced to five College World Series, including four consecutive appearances as a player from 2007-11.

I kinda sorta predicted something like this might happen a few weeks ago. Don't blame him a bit. As far as his replacement is concerned there is someone extremely qualified who would not need the services of a real estate agent to take the job, but I have no idea if there is any interest on either side.

Oldflame, I think I know exactly who you are talking about; but if that coach is not interested, Ballcoach might be persuaded to make the commute from Gretna.

Gosh, I hate to see Coach Gaines leave. He's one of the best pitching coaches in college baseball, plus a good recruiter.

Cider, my expertise on pitching is softball, not baseball.

Was almost a really bad week. Jackson turned down notre dame real late in the game and i think had another school pursue him heavy. Gaines is a big loss. Tomlin would def be as good as anybody from a coaching standpoint. Recruiting is a bit of ? Mark but he has turned LCA into a powerhouse.

The second uncc hired woodard i knew we would lose gaines. It also makes it easier to consider other jobs when you have to replace your top assistant anyway.
