Holbrook Named College of Charleston Baseball Coach

USC baseball's former coach now has a new gig, and he won't have have to go far to take the job.

For the second time, Chad Holbrook has accepted an offer to become the head baseball coach at the College of Charleston.

This time, it will stick.

Holbrook accepted the offer to take over the Cougars program after a bizarre two days which saw Holbrook seemingly have an offer Tuesday night only to have school president Glenn McConnell back off in the wake of support for current N.C. State assistant Scott Foxhall, a former College of Charleston player and assistant.

But in the end, it will be Holbrook getting his second chance to run a program after spending the past five years at USC.

It also means Holbrook will remain in the Palmetto State and assuming USC and the College continue to play, Holbrook will be returning to Founders Park where he will occupy the visitors' dugout.

A press conference to introduce Holbrook will take place Friday at 10:00 a.m.

"What an honor to be the head baseball coach at the College of Charleston," Holbrook said in a statement.

"It is a privilege to be associated with the College's incredible tradition of excellence that I have admired for years. My family and I can't wait to entrench ourselves in one of the most unique communities in the country. I am especially looking forward to meeting our players and the passionate alumni who make Charleston such a special place. Our goal is to create a championship program that excites both our student-athletes and fans alike. That journey starts today."
