Here is a link to another Atlanta Journal Constitution story on Georgia hiring Kent State coach Scott Stricklin:
According to those in the baseball know, Georgia hit a home run with its impending hire of Kent State’s Scott Stricklin.
Stricklin, 41, has agreed in principle to become the Bulldogs’ next baseball coach, multiple people familiar with the search confirmed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. UGA cannot announce his hire, however, until he clears the school’s routine background checks. An official announcement is expected Monday or Tuesday.
“All I can say right now is I can’t comment on it,” Stricklin said Saturday morning. “I’m just being respectful of Greg and the University of Georgia’s athletic department. Hopefully I’ll be able to comment on it soon.”
