|THIS IS A "FAKE" STORY - DO NOT TAKE IT TOO
AUTHOR: RUSTY CRANKSHAFT --
Clemson baseball Coach Jack Leggett, who has been consistently whipped by Ray Tanner’s Gamecocks time and time again in recent years, has been on Cloud 9 since Tanner was named the new Athletic Director in Columbia. Leggett held a press conference to talk about what Tanner leaving means for his future.
“What a tremendous day for Clemson University and our baseball program. I have no idea what kind of Coach Chad Holbrook will be in Columbia, but I can tell you that we’ve got nowhere to go but up with Ray gone. “ The Gamecocks have ended Clemson’s postseason runs three notable times of late, including 4 head-to-head devastating whippings in Omaha at the College World Series.
Leggett had been pushing Texas A & M very hard to hire Eric Hyman as their AD in the hopes that USC would hire Tanner, and actually offered part of his salary to Tanner to make sure the deal got closed. A spokesman for Texas A & M made special note of Leggett’s involvement when Hyman was hired. “Yes, we thought it was strange that a Clemson head coach interjected himself so directly in our AD hiring process here in Texas, but give him credit. He really helped make it happen.”
