REPORT: Pat Casey is leading candidate to be LSU Baseball’s next head coach

Longtime, legendary former Oregon State baseball coach Pat Casey is reportedly headed to SEC country to be the next head baseball coach of the LSU Tigers (AP Images).

In a development that stuns many Beaver fans, former OSU legendary baseball coach Pat Casey could be coming back to college baseball, but it won’t be anywhere near Corvallis.

D1Baseball.com’s Kendall Rogers says Casey is the leading candidate to be the next head coach of the LSU Tigers baseball team.  LSU’s current coach, Paul Mainieri, announced in May that he will be retiring at the end of the season.  LSU was a surprise Super Regional squad, after winning the Eugene Regional last weekend as a three-seed, including a pair of upset wins over the host Oregon Ducks.

Casey is 62 years old.  He has coached 31 years in college baseball, including his historic 1995-2018 run with the Beavers that brought home three national championships in 2006, 2007 and 2018.

Casey announced his retirement from Beaver Baseball back on Sept. 6th, 2018, after 24 seasons as OSU head coach.  He compiled a 900-458-6 record as the Beavers’ baseball coach, a winning percentage of .662. His teams made the College World Series six times.

Casey has had an administrative role with the Beavers athletic department since leaving the diamond.
