According to multiple sources, Mik Aoki will be named the next head coach at Notre Dame after spending the last four seasons as the head coach of the Boston College Eagles. He led the Eagles to the NCAA Tourney in 2009 but that was the only NCAA appearance. He finished the 2010 season with a 30-28 record while going 14-16 in ACC play. His career record with the Eagles was 114-104-1 while having a career head coaching record of 201-248-1 after spending five seasons in charge of the Columbia program before becoming the pitching coach at Boston College under former BC and current VT head coach Peter Hughes.
Aoki has had the worst facility in the ACC and has been able to compete over the last couple of seasons. The recruiting has seemed to drop off the last few seasons as they have not had any stellar young arms develop over the last couple of years.
We have had an excellent relationship with Aoki over the last couple of season as he has been a fixture of doing interviews with the site. You can check out his 2010 interview here and his 2008 interview by clicking here.
Rumor is that 1999 Boston College graduate Mike Gambino is set to take over the baseball program next season but he hasn’t interviewed for the position yet and is on a short list with current BC assistant coach Joe Hastings for the opening. My best bet would be on Gambino returning to the program.
