Big test for Harris, answer is not rocket Science simply spend the money!!!

Possible Hires:
1. Jake Gautreau enters his seventh season on the Mississippi State baseball coaching staff, serving as the recruiting coordinator, hitting, and infield coach.

Gautreau's passion for the game has enabled him to succeed at every level: high school, college, professional, and coaching. The 2019 National Assistant Coach of the Year has an unmatched passion for teaching the game and building relationships that reach far beyond the locker room.

2. Tony Cannizaro if not head coach, hitting coach. Cannizaro remains a very good coach and, like Gautreau, was a College World Series star for the Green Wave on the same team. While he likely would not be considered for the head coaching position and the possibility of returning to professional baseball in some capacity lingers, Cannizaro would be a consideration as an assistant coach.

The A.D. is not going to get rid of Hunter let alone do anything after this season with Uhlman. All this talk about Tulane finally realizing that
a successful athletics program can bring great things to the university is just all b.s.!

Why would Kingston leave SC? And for Tulane? No possible way

If Tulane can tank the final 2 months of a season in men’s basketball, a major revenue sport, without making any changes…

Wave baseball fans shouldn’t be too optimistic about getting a new coach, especially after last year’s “Make a Wish” run to Baton Rouge

I'm not in favor as of yet to replace coaches but the guy at Lamar is the first choice.

There's a better chance of me hitting the lottery, twice, while getting struck by lightning as the winning numbers are drawn both times. You don't leave South Carolina to come to Tulane unless you were fired as the Gamecocks HC.

I have my doubts we will make a change especially since record wise we are guaranteed to be better. (Tulane don’t take that as a challenge please)

Although I’m not sure why Harris couldn’t pull the plug if he wanted to. Uhlman is Dannen’s pet project. There wouldn’t be any pushback from whatever is left of our baseball fanbase either
