Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- Jack's back.
Clemson head baseball coach Jack Leggett will return for his 22nd season in the upstate.
Athletics director Dan Radakovick and Jack Leggett released joint statements Tuesday afternoon officially announcing the decision.
Radakovich has a little less than two weeks to examine the program which included discussions with Leggett and current players.
"This past season's results were not to Clemson's standards, and Coach and I are working together to improve many areas of the program, some which will be visible and others behind the scenes," Radakovich's statement read in part..
"Making adjustments within the baseball program, including the university's participation in the Academic Common Market and investing in facility upgrades, will serve us well into the future. We have talented and committed student-athletes in our program, and we must do whatever is necessary to create opportunities for on-field success for these young men. "
Leggett's statement acknowledged the fact that the season was a disappointment as the Tigers failed to win a regional game for the first time in 26 years.
", I have no doubt we can return quickly to the success we have become accustomed to at Clemson,' Leggett's statement said in part.
"I am excited about the future, and look forward to working with Dan on improvements and adjustments to get us back to the level we all expect.."
