    Collège baseball seems to be the only place where hired and volunteer are acceptable in the same sentence.

    And when a paid assistant leaves his job to take a role as a volunteer assistant, it seems clear the term "volunteer" is a misnomer.

    It wasn't that long ago that the pay gap in baseball was so stark that guys left head coach jobs at smaller schools to become UF assistants.

    FAU’s pitching stats aren’t great in 2021 or 2019. Anyone have thoughts on this guy?

    Greg;

    There is an article on the front page of Gator Country by Ethan Hughes that does a pretty good job of describing Kopp's attributes. He was a three year starter at Clemson when Sully was their Pitching Coach, was on good Tiger teams (one was #1 seed heading to Omaha). Made it to Triple A, but not the Bigs.

    It also talks about his Coaching background also. FWIIW.

    So I thought Sully worked with the pitchers and Gators were more in need of a hitting coach. It just gets more and more peculiar in Gators baseball. Some have suggested that Gators' pitchers have gotten very little coaching instruction in last few years- I've heard the same.... so where does that leave us? Never heard of this hire from FAU but wish him all good luck. Sully's Clemson buddy ... so whatever.

    Jeroloman was hired last year as the hitting coach.

    If Caddyshack is your answer for a hitting coach then here is Kris Armstrong turning on one...
