Corbin tells LSU 'No thanks'

NASHVILLE-- Vanderbilt head baseball coach Tim Corbin has withdrawn his name from consideration for the head coach position at LSU. "I have decided to take my name out of the running for the job at LSU," said Corbin.

"I am honored and flattered that they would consider me for that job, but I think I have one of the best jobs in the country right here at Vanderbilt. The administration has shown a tremendous amount of support for the program and I believe we are building something special here."

"Tim Corbin is a Vanderbilt Commodore and we couldn¹t be more pleased in saying that," said Vice Chancellor David Williams. ³Tim is the face of our program and he is carving out a special place in our history with his tireless efforts and first class results. We want Vanderbilt to be his coaching home for many years to come."

Corbin is 144-95 in four seasons at Vanderbilt. The Commodores went 38-27 this past season and advanced to the championship games of the SEC tournament and at the NCAA Atlanta Regional. He is also the head coach of the USA National Team and will depart for summer competition on Friday.
