The future of USF baseball coach Eddie Cardieri’s career will continue to be discussed today and possibly over the next few days, the coach said Tuesday.
Cardieri said he and Athletic Director Doug Woolard met Tuesday for the first time since the season ended May 24 with the 6-4 loss to St. John’s in the Big East Tournament.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
