Report: Potential candidate will not be next baseball coach at South Carolina

Michigan baseball coach Erik Bakich has been mentioned as a possible candidate at South Carolina and one report had him set to interview for the vacant job.

But according to Kendall Rogers, who is a national writer/editor at D1Baseball, Bakich is staying put.

Rogers tweeted out Wednesday evening that Bakich is “NOT a candidate for the South Carolina job. Bakich made it crystal clear he’s committed to UM long-term.”

Rogers also reported that Bakich turned down the Stanford job, which is also open.

According to a report from The Detroit News earlier this week, Michigan Director of Athletics Warde Manuel recently offered Bakich a five-year contract extension.
