Great.  I'd like to see them talk to Virginia's assistants once their tournament run ends.

If Penn State makes a change, Joyner should take a long look at UVa's top assistant, Kevin McMullan.  McMullan had successful head coaching stints with East Carolina (interim) and at IUP, his alma mater.  He's also coached in the Atlanta Braves minor league system and has been an assistant coach at St. John's.  McMullan makes every list of top D-I baseball assistants that you can find.

Virginia's top assistant may be a very good choice, but UVA recruits Pennsylvania baseball talent and we all know Penn State believes there is no baseball talent in PA.  Nor softball talent for that matter.

Penn State Proud, Joe Paterno Proud and the rest of the world can kiss my Blue and White ARSE

God Bless JVP and rest well

Not Penn State, Robbie Wine.

Let's face facts, when you bring in a guy who knows Big XII baseball, he's going to recruit the areas he knows.  Wine knew Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, etc. 

Get a coach who knows the area and Penn State could become the next Indiana.

FWIW, Robin Petrini quit today, too.

The press release reads as if Petrini's "resignation" was forced. 

If Petrini's gone, it's hard for me to imagine that Robbie Wine will get another year.

Two B1G teams in the WCWS.  Indiana in the CWS.

It's pretty clear that B1G schools need to step it up.

Considering the big moves that have been made so far with coaching hires, I have to think they at least have their eye on someone currently playing on Omaha.

I was just wondering if he was going to make another season. Expect announcement sometime today or this week?

I'm close with two former psu coaches as as well as a psu baseball alum coaching in college and they all heard the same thing that wine is out and that the announcement will be this week.... Let the speculation as to the replacement begin.... Just give me somebody who will recruit pa and the surrounding states.... This program can really do well with the right guy...

Okay. I agree on the replacement. When Medlar Park was built, everyone talked about that being a huge recruiting tool. I don't follow baseball recruiting close enough to see if it was a help or if it was player development that was the problem.

Anyways, I still think the facilities can bring in recruits, the coaches just need to identify them and then develop them.

Note to PSU baseball coaching search committee....take a good, long look at Kevin McMullan and Karl Kuhn at UVA.  They, along with head coach Brian O'Connor, have built Virginia into a national power, perennially in the CWS regionals, super regionals, and occasionally in the CWS. 


They recruit Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Maryland almost exclusively, and they know how to win. They know how to win at a fine academic institution.

These guys pack their stadium with winning baseball teams every year, and bring in regional and super regional crowds that are a sight to behold almost every year.

It would be great to see this at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park, and these guys know how to get it done with local and regional talent.

It all depends on what they want to pay.... I bet the two UVA asst coaches would be taking a pay cut to be the head psu coach. Coach Mac, in particular, is a popular candidate for many jobs .

Re: Robbie Wine out? 


Agreed! I live outside of Charlottesville and go to home games at Davenport Field yearly. I always look at the program to see where the recruits are coming from and it's all within the Mid-Atlantic. PSU has the better facility, but UVA has the better coaching and weather. If they get someone that focuses on local recruiting, I think you'll see a lot of recruiting battles with schools like UVA in the upcoming years. Let's hope they get someone with that focus in mind.

Jeff Tambroni and Cael Sanderson are wondering that you mean.

Perfect Game, a college baseball website, mentions Wright State's Rob Cooper as a possible candidate for Penn State.  Wright State took two of three games from us at Medlar Field over a weekend in early April. The Raiders struggled a bit this season, but Cooper's had a strong W-L record during his tenure, and he is also the USA National 18-Under head coach for 2013. He's going to have a busy summer.

Only two losing seasons since 05.  Plus he's a Miami grad, which means he probably has some decent Florida ties.

Looking at their roster, it looks to be heavy on Ohio and Illinois kids.  That could work well for Penn State's traditional recruiting grounds.
