Quite a few Astro fans have talked about hiring him as a head coach when he retires. Some of the fans wanted him this season but he signed on to play another year... I'd like to think the Astros can hire a better quality coach than the Vols. Especially since some of the people here want the Astros left overs. Referring to Phil Garner.
I don't think it's a coincidence that Astros pitching was some of the best in baseball with Ausmus and has been horrible since he left.
Let's put it this way... I don't think Ausmus or any other guy that's played professional baseball would be so bad at coaching that they'd lose their first 10 conference games of the season. Raleigh is as bad as it gets. There is a reason he was coaching at a bad school prior to Tennessee and it's not because he was getting black balled like Bruce Pearl. It's because he isn't a good coach.
