Is there any word out there on the progress of hiring a new baseball coach for the Penn State Nittany Lions? Why is it taking so long? Auburn hired a new coach very quickly. They took the guy who was at Oklahoma. I realize that Penn State baseball is not by any means a high power program. But Penn State is a big time school. With a big time athletic department and is home to what I am assuming is one of the best ballparks in college baseball. When Robbie Wine got fired/ or asked to resign I was pretty optimistic that the new head coach would be named, named quickly, and would be a name recognized within college baseball circles. Iowa has managed to land a new coach. They hired Rick Heller away from Indiana State. Was Penn State in the running for Heller? Surely Penn State would be more appealing than Iowa. Indiana has proven that Big Ten baseball teams can make it to the College World Series. Why not Penn State?
