USC and Head Baseball Coach Jason Gill Mutually Agree to Part Ways
LOS ANGELES – USC and baseball head coach Jason Gill agreed amicably to part ways after three seasons, Director of Athletics Mike Bohn announced today (June 6).
"I enjoyed my time at USC and appreciated the opportunity to lead its baseball program," said Gill. "I am excited to see what the future holds for me and my family, and I wish the players and the program the best."
Gill was hired as the USC head coach in June of 2019 after spending 11 seasons at Loyola Marymount. Over the last three seasons under Gill, including a shortened 2020 campaign, USC went 60-59 overall. The Trojans were 25-28 this season.
"We are thankful to Jason for his three years of service to our university and baseball program," said Bohn. "Jason's first season at USC was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and that created a difficult environment to navigate in the ensuing two years. We appreciate that Jason led us through those challenging circumstances. However, we ultimately determined it was in our shared best interest to part ways at this time. We wish Jason and his family all the best moving forward."
USC owns the most storied history in college baseball, with 12 national championships (double any other school) and 21 College World Series appearances.
Said Bohn: "We believe in the promise of USC baseball, and our expectation is to compete for national championships. We are determined to restore the unrivaled winning tradition of our program, and we will make the necessary commitments to ensure we successfully recruit an elite leader for our baseball program."
A national search for Gill's replacement will begin immediately.
