Report: Gamecocks to hire Kingston as baseball coach

kingston2The University of South Carolina is poised to name South Florida baseball coach Mark Kingston to take over the Gamecocks’ program, according to multiple media reports.

According to the reports, Kingston is leaving the Bulls after three successful seasons that saw the rising program reach two NCAA Tournaments. South Carolina missed the postseason two of four seasons under former coach Chad Holbrook.

Kingston interviewed for the vacant Gamecocks post last week as one of the finalist on current athletics director and former baseball coach Ray Turner. USC’s Board of Trustees were expected to meet to approve the move, with an official announcement to follow as soon as Friday.

Kingston previously coached at Illinois State, helping the Redbirds reach the NCAA Tournament before taking the South Florida post. The North Carolina grad guided the Bulls to a 42-19 mark in 2017, the first time since 1996 that the team had reached the 40-win mark.
