Michigan Baseball reportedly has interest in Kevin McMullan

The Michigan Wolverines baseball team continues their search for their next head coach following the departure of Erik Bakich, who departed the program earlier this month and was soon announced as the new coach at Clemson, returning to a program where he served as a volunteer assistant in 2002.

The 19th coach in team history, Bakich had just completed his 10th year with the Wolverines this season, leading the team to Regional Final before ultimately falling to Louisville. And according to Michigan Athletic Director Warde Manuel, he’d like to get a new coach to Ann Arbor swiftly.

“I’d like to get it done as soon as I can,” Manuel said. “It could be a week or two weeks. I don’t anticipate two months, or a month, actually.”

There was thought that the Wolverines might stay local in their search, as current Detroit Tigers pitching coach Chris Fetter was floated as a potential candidate. However, Fetter won’t be returning to Ann Arbor, withdrawing his name from consideration for the position.

Another candidate being considered for the job was Connecticut coach Jim Penders, who also withdrew his candidacy.

“I’m not thirty-one anymore, but I still owe UConn, and I renew my pledge today,” Penders said in a statement.
