I spoke with Athletics Director Wood Selig earlier today. He is currently in Baton Rouge, La. to watch the Toppers play in the opening rounds of the Preseason National Invitational Tournament.
No big news to report. He did say he and Stanford assistant coach Willie Taggart have texted back and forth, but only about Stanford’s recent success, including a win over USC over the weekend.
Selig said the pool of candidates has reached between 70 and 80 people. He said he hopes to have that down to a short list of about 5-10 people in the coming weeks.
He also said that they have not had any direct conversations yet in the pool of candidates.
We’ll update if we hear any more.
