Following months of speculation as to if Louisville Baseball head coach Dan McDonnell could be on the move following the 2018 season, the head coach spoke to the Courier Journal and informed them that he would not field any potential offers from other schools and would stay at Louisville.
This comes after rumors had been swirling for months that the Mississippi State Bulldogs were interested in hiring him after they had fired their head coach in the beginning of the 2018 season. McDonnell said that he had been in contact with MSU’s athletic director, but did not say if he was actually presented with a contract offer.
McDonnell is Louisville Baseball’s all-time winningest coach, with a record of 554-222 over his 12 years as the Cards’ head coach. Over that span, he has made 11 trips to the NCAA Tournament (Just 1 prior to his arrival), including 4 trips to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska.
