Clemson assistant Bradley LeCroy and Coastal Carolina head coach Gary Gilmore could be on Georgia’s list of candidates to replace Dave Perno as the Bulldogs head baseball coach. College baseball writer Kendall Rogers mentioned both LeCroy and Gilmore in his story about Perno’s firing.
LeCroy is Clemson’s recruiting coordinator and considered one of the top recruiters in college baseball. Gilmore has turned Coastal Carolina into a power in the Big South. The Chanticleers are regulars in the postseason and have even hosted NCAA Regionals and Super Regionals a couple of times over the past several seasons.
Perno was let go Sunday night after 12 seasons in Athens. He led the Bulldogs to the College World Series three times in his tenure, but his team has struggled each of the past two seasons. This year’s team didn’t qualify for the SEC Tournament.
Rogers also mentioned former USC assistant Mark Calvi was as a potential candidate for the Bulldogs post. Calvi, who served as USC’s pitching coach under Ray Tanner, has spent the past two season as the head coach at South Alabama.
