SEC Country is reporting that Michigan baseball coach Erik Bakich is expected to interview for the open South Carolina job.
Bakich is familiar with the SEC, having served as an assistant at Vanderbilt from 2003-09 and also has experience in South Carolina from coaching at Clemson in 2002.
Florida coach Kevin O'Sullivan is reportedly a strong candidate for the same job
Meanwhile, Bakich's pitching coach, Sean Kenny (an Ann Arbor native), is headed to Georgia to be their pitching coach. So even if Bakich stays at U-M he'll have a big hole to fill on his coaching staff.
