He had a school-record 52 wins, but he was only at Louisburg College for one year and then Coach Mike McGuire decided to acquire a new baseball coaching post, at Morehead State….There is talk circulating around, that a former college coach from Greensboro, might just be the new head man at Louisburg and the lean looks to be toward Coach Keith Shumate, who was most recently at N.C. A&T….Coach Mike Gaski was let go at UNCG, but the name we keep on hearing for the Louisburg job is Keith Shumate and if it works out that way, best of luck to him in his new role, as the head man for Hurricanes baseball, at Louisburg College….(We’ll keep you posted.)
Here is the word on Coach McGuire lighting a fire and then deciding to retire on to Morehead State….from the Louisburg Hurricanes web site…..
LOUISBURG, NC – Hurricanes head baseball coach Mike McGuire has accepted the head coach position at Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky.
As Athletic Director Mike Holloman noted, “Mike did a great job in the year he spent here with us. He re-established our baseball program as one of the premier junior college programs in the country, overseeing a Louisburg College record-breaking season of 52 wins. Obviously I’m sad to see him leave; he was a good friend and a good colleague to Louisburg College Athletics, but I’m also happy with this professional opportunity for him.”
