Clemson assistant coach Tim Corbin visited Nashville Wednesday to interview for the vacant Vanderbilt baseball head coaching position, according to the Anderson (S.C.) Independent-Mail.

Corbin, 40, currently serves as Associate Head Coach and Recruiting Coordinator for the Tigers under head coach Jack Leggett.  Now in his ninth season at Clemson, Corbin was named the 2000 Assistant Coach-of-the-Year by ABCA/Baseball America.

Although Corbin told the Independent-Mail that no offer had been made, he was quoted as saying of the interview, "It went pretty good. [Vanderbilt]'s a good place.  It's got a lot of tradition academically. The stadium is nice and brand new. I thought it went well."

Corbin's recruiting classes have been ranked in the Top 25 nationally for each of the last nine seasons, and his 1999 class was ranked No. 1.  Clemson has advanced to the NCAA Super-Regional round of the NCAA College World Series each of the last four years.

Clemson faces Arkansas this weekend in the Super-Regionals.

Former coach Roy Mewbourne resigned on May 19 after 24 seasons as Vandy skipper.
