Former Clemson and College of Charleston head baseball coach Monte Lee is back where his coaching career got its kick-start, as an assistant coach at USC. Lee was named late last week by Mark Kingston as the program’s associate head coach and recruiting coordinator. Prior to becoming the head coach at Charleston in 2009, Lee spent six years as an assistant to Ray Tanner at USC, a period when the Gamecocks emerged as a national power.
Lee spent seven years at Charleston followed by another seven seasons at Clemson. He was fired by the Tigers following last season after failing to make the NCAA Tournament.
Monday Lee met with the media via Zoom instead of in-person as head coach Mark Kingston has Covid.
