Ray Tanner to be named South Carolina AD, Holbrook baseball coach

According to Teddy Heffner, sports talk host at 560 the Team, Ray Tanner will be named Athletic Director at South Carolina in a 2pm press conference tomorrow.

Tanner won two national championships, six SEC East titles, three SEC regular-season titles, one SEC tournament and went to six CWS in his time as baseball coach.

The Big Spur reports Tanner is likely to make $700,000 a year in his new role.

The first person to announce this: Matt Barber of Dixie Fried Sports. South Carolina will announce Ray Tanner as its next AD on Friday. Monday they will announce Chad Holbrook as Head baseball coach.

Sammy Esposito will probably be the coach replacing Holbrook in his assistant role.

Jay Phillips of 107.5 the Game: We have been able to confirm that USC will announce Ray Tanner as AD on Fri and Chad Holbrook as baseball coach on Mon.

Jay Phillips: A Board of Trustees committee has already met. Full board vote approving Ray Tanner as AD will take place Friday morning.

From Isabelle Khurshudyan: Things that made AD search looked tipped towards Tanner from start: Staley on advisory committee, prior AD experience not a qualification.

Ray Tanner is 54 years old. He has been SC baseball coach since 1997. Now, he takes over as their athletic director. Chad Holbrook I believe is 40, almost the same age as Mr. Tanner was when he took over the program fifteen years ago.

Jerry Meyers will be pitching coach, Sammy Esposito will be full-time assistant coach, & Brian Buscher volunteer.
