    Dan Gakelar. Pro Baseball and Pro Coaching experience. Lives in Greensboro

  • hahaha said,

    anyone who takes this job is a fool. GC is in so much financial trouble that I find it hard to believe that the school itself will be around much longer, much less the baseball program…or even the athletic department altogether.

  • don said,

    Hoping they promote Head Assistant Matt Acre

  • I agee said,

    Matt would be a great choose. Great Coach knows the program,player and incoming class. Remember this is a very good incoming class. That is loaded with pitching. Maybe Matt could convince them not to transfer.

  • Wahoos1017 said,

    How about Alan Ashkinazy?? He has the baseball knowledge and experience in recruiting. He seems like a good fit with so many players in the area going through GBC. Recruiting is ok in college athletics.

  • Andy said,

    Alan would do a good job at Greensboro College.

  • raygc said,

    Amen I say Alan for the next head Baseball Coach at GC good choice.

  • kbenton said,

    No way Alan has the time for this and run his business also. But he would be a good choice. kids would enjoy playing for him.

  • jerry said,

    alan would be good what college did he graduate from

  • Eddie Willis said,

    New York Tech.

  • John Barrow said,

    Al is helping out with the GTCC baseball program this year, and I am very excited to have him!

  • reggie said,

    You’re a lucky man John. 😉

  • Guilford County said,

    Well i was thinking of local guys that could be good for this position

    1. Alan A. (but he has a business to run)

    2. Justin Smith (he is capable but i bet he loves his summer program more than to be a college coach, althought i think he could be good for the job)

    3. Andy Partin (would he give up his money as a dirtbag to coach this college team)

    4. Tommy Myers (be a father son tag team)

  • ????? said,

    Justin Smith are you freaking kidding me? You can always tell the poeple who know nothing about the game.

  • Robert Jones said,

    Where is this guy Eddie Willis to comment on this post? I don’t mean to be rude , Guilford County, but Tmmy Myers and his dad? Tell mr that you are joking, please. That suggestion makes Justin look like a “good hire”.

  • Wahoos1017 said,

    Andy Partin doesn’t coach, he recruits. You have to be able to coach and teach at the college level. How many transfers do you see at the college level?? Not many. Partin is successful because he recruits from other programs. Look at the job he did last year at Forsyth Country Day School. Below average at best. You have to know the game to be successful in college. Because he cannot teach baseball, this year you will see at least 5 kids transferring to FCDS. That is how he develops a team. There is a reason the Dirtbags have never won a National Championship with all that talent.

  • GC Parent said,

    What a mess! What was Lojko thinking?

  • T said,

    GC Parent – The guy quit. Not lojko’s call, so don’t blame her.

  • Phil Thee said,

    As an aside, Justin Smith would not be a candidate because he is not a college graduate! Of the 3-4 locals mentioned, Alan is the only one with a 4-year degree.

  • GC Parent said,

    T-Do not assume. Carlyle did not quit. He was forced to resign.

  • GC Baseball said,

    Word here at GC is that and guy named Van Hurley has put in his name for the job.

  • who else said,

    Who else has put there name in the hat for the job at Greensboro College

  • Robert Jones said,

    Who is van hurley—google searched him and there is nothing related—-maybe that’s what they want!

  • coach said,

    Van Hurley is the head coach @ Randleman HS
