Noted college baseball insider, Kendall Rogers, is reporting that Pat Casey has emerged as the lead candidate to become the next head baseball coach at LSU University. He dropped his scoop on twitter Wednesday afternoon.

Pat Casey was a baseball coach at the collegiate level for 31 years before deciding to take a step back after winning his third CWS with Oregon State in 2018. Since that time he’s been in an administrative role for the Beavers, but has never ruled out a return to the diamond. Pat Casey is 62 years old and currently his son plays LF for Oregon State.

Rogers expounded on his ‘coaching scoop’ referencing LSU’s Athletic Director Scott Woodward and his desire to bring in an experienced coach. Many Oregon State fans have surmised that Pat Casey might return to coaching, perhaps even at OSU, but with the hire of Mitch Canham that doesn’t appear to be an option.

Stay tuned as this story works it’s way out. LSU and Pat Casey could be a good match and would presumably be poised to compete for championships in the seasons to come, but there’s no mistaking that both parties have somewhat of a complicated/troubled past. It would definitely be a unique pairing.
