College of Charleston head baseball coach Monte Lee helped advance his Cougar program out of the Gainesville regional and into the field of 16 in 2014, good enough for the best run out of all the talent-laden programs in the state of South Carolina this season.
For his efforts, we’ve had coach Lee on the program a lot lately, documenting their incredible run as a four-seed.
The Cougars run also meant that his name was inevitably going to be tossed around for consideration for some high profile jobs. Arizona State showed serious interest in luring Lee away from the coast of South Carolina, but Lee ultimately stayed put and signed an extension with the “College of Knowledge.”
Tonight we talked with Coach Lee about weighing overtures, and what it means to him to remain at his Alma Mater, coaching the Cougars, and much more.
