    I would think the University is trying to keep things as meet as possible for any potential candidate for the UL National power Softball program Head Coaching position. Let's just hope this is over as quickly and neatly as possible FOR THE GIRLS SAKE, and the beloved UL SOFTBALL TEAM AND PROGRAM!!!

    UL Softball Re: Short List coaching search

    I'll say this. Is it a law that we put out a want ad for our coaches?

    I'd hope we'd be having conversations with several big time agents about their outstanding clients. I'm not going to be the least bit impressed with a news release saying we had hundreds of outstanding candidates. There's not but a handful of impressive candidates. The question is do we pay them twice Mike's salary & three times as much for the assistants?

    Yvette considered it an honor to be asked to help and is a key player in this search.

    Jerry, put the bottle down! Don't expect them to pay anymore than the previous staff and probably less hoping to hit gold on this hire!

    What exactly do you guys think we need as far as a type of new coach for softball? I think we need someone with a pitching background and a strong recruiter. What worries me the most is we didn't recruit great, but we coached great. No matter what anyone says Mike did a good job coaching kids up that wasn't as talent as others.

    Just trying to keep it real. Getting a bargain basement winner is a lot like playing the lotto instead of investing.

    I have heard that a name being bantered around a lot in the Athletic Department to replace Lotief is Tim Whitman, former Louisiana College head softball coach and athletic director.

    In 2009...Whitman is the first from a non-NCAA Division I school to be Louisiana Coach of the Year in softball. He has nearly 300 victories and has won more than 80 percent of his games in eight seasons at Louisiana College. This season Whitman guided the Lady Wildcats to a 38-9 record, a fifth consecutive appearance in an NCAA Division III regional tournament and a No. 1 national ranking for the third straight season.

    Not saying he wouldn't be successful or that he isn't a good coach, but this would not be a hire that would generate enthusiasm from the softball community. My concern would be no experience as a D1 coach and no experience as a recruiter at this level of college softball. To me this would be a hire to downsize. JMO

    Understand your concerns but look at the prior three coaches..... all had a lot less experience than him.
