Baylor baseball coach Steve Rodriguez has stepped away from the team after seven seasons at the helm of the program. Following a 26-28 finish overall and an eighth place mark in Big 12 play, it was only a matter of time before Rodriguez was relieved of his post — or stepped away himself. With the latter happening, Baylor is now in a search for its next skipper. Cameron Stuart, a local news guy, joins Drake to break down who the next coach will be.
To start the list, Cameron pitches Dan Heefner, the head baseball coach at Dallas Baptist, while Drake offers Steven Strout from Texas State as his fifth pick. Both coaches have claimed massive success in the mid-major ranks. The fourth spot on the list calls for Cameron and Drake to swap — the former going with Trout as his pick and the latter choosing Heefner. Baylor could not go wrong with either.
For the top three on the list, Drake led off with Sean Allen, the pitching coach at Texas who has been with skipper David Pierce for 10 seasons and crafted some of the best arms in the nation. Cameron, on the other hand, chose former Baylor pitching coach Chris Berry, the current softball coach at MCC. Drake rallied with Tennessee pitching coach and recruiting guru Frank Anderson, only to be met with Cameron's No. 2 pick — Texas assistant Troy Tulowitzki.
And, for the number one pick, both Drake and Cameron agreed on McLennan Community College head baseball coach Mitch Thompson. Thompson spent almost 20 years in the Baylor program and recruited some of the best athletes the program had ever seen. Could he be the next head Bear?
