Oregon State baseball legend Pat Casey could be making his return to the dugout, but it won't be with OSU.

According to D1Baseball.com, Casey is in the running to become the next head coach of the LSU Tigers. 

Casey holds a career 1,071–571–7 coaching record, with most of the success coming in Corvallis. 

Casey coached six seasons at George Fox before jumping to Oregon State in 1995. He slowly started to build the foundation for the Beavers dynasty and by 2005 he took OSU to the College World Series for the first time in more than 50 years. 

That was just the beginning. 

From that point on OSU became the premier baseball program in the nation. Casey led the squad to back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007, and brought home another one in 2018.

Casey retired following the 2018 Championships, ended his run at OSU with a 900–458–6 record with the Beavers. 

He built one of the greatest programs the nation has ever seen, so it's no surprise LSU would want a chance to bring him into their storied program.

Since retiring, Casey has remained in the OSU athletic department. According to the Oregonian, Casey is under contract with OSU through June of next year and is due $630,000 over the final year of his deal.
