Also shorter season, less travel (or at least shorter trips).

... Wow, I expected it to at least be a head coaching job.

Smart choice. A college pitching coach with MLB coaching experience is an elite recruiting tool rather than a future scapegoat for a front office that can't/won't do its job, like every non-player in every MLB dugout.

You wouldn't change jobs for the exact same position with less responsibility, less stress, fewer working days and double the salary?

Oh, there are fewer fans in the stands, fewer days. But LSU baseball, even well past their prime years, is an institution which demands results much more than the Twins do. That program treats itself like the Yankees, and in the 90s they were just that.

I mean, the guy seemed to have an upward trajectory, that's why I'd have expected him to at least bolt for a head coaching job if dropping down to college. And given the trajectory of the rest of the SEC West, along with what the Tennessee schools are putting together, I really don't think it's gonna do much except maybe fatten his wallet a little bit, LSU has too much competition to ever be what they once were.

Also, nah, I wouldn't move to Louisiana.

What does it say for SECSPN money that this can happen? This is like LIV golf shiat.

The chow is 20x better in south Louisiana than anything anywhere in Minnesota.  And the land won't turn into tundra.  Ever.
