Stanford University has an opening for a head baseball coach and reportedly A.J. Hinch has generated plenty of interest at his alma mater.
Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle listed Hinch as the man at the top of the school’s wish list. The Houston Chronicle reported that Hinch described the report as a “non-story.”
Mark Marquess is retiring from the head coaching position after starting at Stanford in 1977. One of his pupils was Hinch, who was a two-time Pac-10 Player of the Year. Marquess won back-to-back national championships in 1987-88, however a successor has not been named.
Hinch referred to Marquess as like a “second father to me” in the Chronicle article.
