Chad Holbrook has made it clear that he hopes to be back in the dugout coaching college baseball soon after resigning from South Carolina earlier this month.
He will get an opportunity to earn a new job when he interviews this weekend, he told 107.5 The Game on Wednesday afternoon.
“I’m going to go out of state here for a couple of days on the weekend and talk about a possibility at another baseball program,” Holbrook said. “I’m not in a comfortable spot to tell you where that program is, but I am going to go explore a few opportunities this week. A couple of them are out of state. But we’ll just see. I do feel certain that I will be in the dugout coaching baseball next year, and I feel good about that.”
Holbrook did not specify if the job entails being a head coach or an assistant coach, and he told The State last week that he would be interested in all coaching opportunities, either running his own program or working as an assistant.
Current head coaching jobs open include Cal, Dayton, East Tennessee State, Incarnate Word, LaSalle, Southern, Santa Clara and UL Monroe, in addition to USC.
Holbrook has recently been linked to the College of Charleston job if it comes open. According to a report from the Post and Courier, Charleston head coach Matt Heath is under investigation after former players accused him of abusive behavior.
