Louisiana Tech baseball coach Greg Goff could be the next baseball coach at Alabama.
According to a report from TideSports.com’s Ben Jones, the Crimson Tide is expected to soon name Goff as the replacement for former coach Mitch Gaspard.
Goff has a 67-47 record in two seasons as the Bulldogs head coach. His 2016 squad qualified for the NCAA baseball tournament, but lost in the Starkville Regional that was won by Mississippi State.
Goff would inherit a Crimson Tide team that has missed the NCAA tournament for the last two seasons. Alabama finished Gaspard’s final season with a 32-26 record.
Gaspard finished his career at Alabama with a 234-193 record before resigning in late May.
“We have consistently fielded a competitive program in the nation’s finest conference throughout our seven seasons at Alabama,” Gaspard said, according to AL.com’s Drew Champlin. “But I feel this is the right time to make a change – not only for me, but for the program as a whole. I think a good foundation has been set for whoever takes over the program. And, with our new stadium, the chance to recruit at a high level is definitely there.”
Goff would inherit a freshly renovated facility, as the Crimson Tide just finished its first season in Sewell-Thomas Stadium following a $42 million renovation.
