South Carolina head baseball coach Mark Kingston calls Tyson Lusk the best in the business. High praise from a man with high standards. Coaches with high profile programs would rather not be bothered with details about things like travel and dining and leave it to professionals like Tyson to ensure that those areas are buttoned up tight.
In this episode, Tyson talks about growing up a Tar Heels fan in North Carolina, serving as the student manager for the University of North Carolina baseball team, landing the job at South Carolina, learning the job, the transition from the coach that hired him to a new coach, his biggest challenges, the focus on academics, taking care of visiting teams, the responsibility for game scheduling, and channeling his competitive nature into off-the-field activities.
