CLEMSON, S.C. (WCSC) - Clemson has found their next head baseball coach.

The Tigers have agreed to a deal with Michigan head coach and former Clemson assistant Erik Bakich to take over the program. Rivals and D1baseball.com were the first to report the move on Tuesday night.

“Our family is thrilled to join the Clemson Athletics family and immerse ourselves in the local community,” Bakich said in a statement. “It was an honor to wear the Clemson uniform 20 years ago as a young coach on Jack Leggett’s staff. I am forever grateful and very appreciative for the opportunity to start coaching at Clemson surrounded by three Hall of Famers and a record-setting team. It is a privilege to serve as a steward of this storied tradition and help lead Clemson Baseball back to prominence competing for ACC Championships, trips to Omaha and our first National Championship.”

The 44-year-old has spent the last 10 seasons as the head coach at Michigan and will now replace Monte Lee who was let go earlier this month after 7 years.

“We are delighted to welcome Erik, Jiffy and their three children back to the Clemson Family,” Clemson Director of Athletics Graham Neff said in a statement. “Erik impressed us with his integrity, his approach to running a program and the emphasis he puts into the student-athlete experience. He knows well the expectations at Clemson, which he contributed to, through his role within the 2002 team and working alongside Jack Leggett, Tim Corbin and Kevin O’Sullivan, among others. I am confident in Erik’s ability to compete for ACC Championships and return to Omaha, and do it the right way.”

In his 10 seasons with the Wolverines, Bakich led Michigan to the NCAA Tournament five times including making it all the way to the championship series in 2019.

Bakich was the consensus national coach of the year in 2019, when he led Michigan to an NCAA runner-up finish and a 50-22 record. He also led it to the NCAA Tournament in 2015, 2017, 2021 and 2022, meaning five of his last seven teams (excluding 2020) advanced to the national tournament. Bakich guided the Wolverines to Big Ten Tournament titles in 2015 and 2022 as well.

Bakich got his start coaching at Clemson in 2002 working as an assistant to Jack Leggett for one season. From there he would move on to Vanderbilt where he spent 7 years working as an assistant under Tim Corbin.

His first head coaching job came in 2010 when he took over at Maryland. He would spent 3 seasons with the Terrapins before moving to Michigan,

Overall, Bakich’s record as a head coach sits at 398-314.

Bridgeman Named Men’s Golf ACC Scholar Athlete of the Year

CLEMSON, S.C. — Jacob Bridgeman has been named the ACC Men’s Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The announcement was made Monday by the league office. The award is named after Rod Myers, Duke’s men’s golf coach between 1973-2007.

CLEMSON, S.C. — Jacob Bridgeman has been named the ACC Men’s Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The announcement was made Monday by the league office. The award is named after Rod Myers, Duke’s men’s golf coach between 1973-2007. This marks back-to-back honors for Bridgeman – the first to do so since James White at Georgia Tech won consecutive awards in 2011 and 2012. Bridgeman is joined by teammate Zack Gordon on the All-ACC Academic Team.

The Inman, S.C. is the second golfer to be named the ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in men’s golf, as Stephen Behr won the honor for the 2015-16 academic year.

A senior management major, Bridgeman led the Tigers this year with a. 70.43 stroke average, posted a team-best 15 rounds in the 60’s and had 19 under-par rounds. He was 29-under-par for his 30 rounds. He won two tournaments this year, the Linger Longer Invitational in March with a 16-under-par score of 200, and the ACC Championship in April with a 13-under-par score of 203.

The week after the ACC Championship he was named the ACC Golfer of the Year. Bridgeman is a three-time All-ACC performer and three-time All-American.

He had five consecutive top four finishes at one point this season, the longest streak of its kind by a Clemson golfer since 2002 when DJ Trahan had six in a row. Bridgeman finished with six top 10 finishes this year, also best on the team. He had 18 top 10’s for his four-year career.

For his career, Bridgeman finished with a 70.74 stroke average, second in Clemson history behind Doc Redman’s 70.70. Bridgeman set a Clemson record with 50 career rounds in the 60’s and his 64 rounds under-par rank in a tie for fifth with Lucas Glover. His 463 career birdies rank sixth-best in Clemson history.

In the final computer rankings this year, Bridgeman was second in the PGA TOUR University rankings, giving him status this summer on the Korn Ferry Tour. He just finished tied for fifth at the BMW Charity Pro Am in Greenville and Spartanburg with a 19-under-par score. His 29 birdies (28 birdies and one eagle) led the field by three.

Bridgeman also finished ninth in the final Golfstat rankings and was 12th according to Golfweek. His round of 62 at the Maui Jim Invitational on September 11, 2021, was tied for the second best single round in Division I college golf this past academic year.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards were established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports.

Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career for undergraduate students. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.

The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.

Perimeter Road construction is under way and will continue over the next 18 months. OUR Clemson collected input from leaders and stakeholders from the City of Clemson, the local trails community, South Carolina Botanical Garden and Clemson University to understand more about the project.

In monitoring daily traffic patterns on Perimeter Road, University Facilities noted that daily vehicular traffic had increased more than 30 percent in the three years between 2015 and 2018. These daily traffic patterns do not include those associated with football games.

In 2017, the University released its Long-Range Framework Plan to include enhancing and protecting green space corridors throughout the middle of campus. Additionally, the plan supports environmental sustainability while promoting health and wellness for active lifestyles for members of the Clemson community, building upon a master plan for campus bikeways to include a network of bike lanes, shared roadways, shared-use paths and mountain biking trails connecting the entire extended campus.

The Roadway Pedestrian Safety Enhancements Project was established to provide additional pedestrian facilities and vehicular capacity along Perimeter Road to continue to encourage Perimeter Road as the primary vehicular gateway to campus, while enhancing the experience for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists along Walter T. Cox Boulevard.

Insights from Area Experts

As work moves ahead, the following experts answered OUR Clemson’s questions:

How long will this project take?

Todd Barnette, chief facilities officer, Clemson University: We’ve worked hard with our teams to reduce construction time. This project will take 18 months, and disruptions will be minimal and may include limited single lane closures and shifts.

What will it look like when the project’s done?

Todd Barnette, chief facilities officer, Clemson University: Perimeter Road will be transformed from a two-lane road to a 48-foot-wide gateway to campus with two-lanes in each direction, a 15-foot-wide landscaped median, then a 5-foot-wide buffer before a 10-foot-wide multiuse path. Keeping the multipurpose path away from vehicles was an important safety measure. We’ll be adding curbs, gutters and shoulders to address safety requirements as well. If we can fast forward in our minds, walkers, runners, cyclists and drivers will really enjoy getting around campus. We’ve used this as an opportunity to extend the Green Crescent trail too, opening access to future miles and miles of pathways purely devoted to outdoor activities. Adding a 10-foot-wide multi-purpose path will improve campus safety and encourage active lifestyles.

Are there any other unique features being added other than roads and sidewalks?

Todd Barnette, chief facilities officer, Clemson University: Yes, Clemson’s design team designed three stormwater ponds to handle rainwater runoff. We coordinated with partners at The South Carolina Botanical Garden and The Walker Golf Course to understand their current issues and concerns regarding drainage. These three stormwater ponds will help prevent flooding in the garden and golf course.

Is the multipurpose trail along Perimeter Road a part of the City of Clemson’s Green Crescent Trail?

Chad Carson, president, Friends of the Green Crescent Trail: Yes, city and University planners have been working together for several years to connect different portions of multiuse trails between the city and the University, and the Perimeter Road section will be one of the first and most important City-University connections to be implemented. Upon completion, the University portion will be a 10-foot-wide, 1.2-mile multiuse path for pedestrians and cyclists, separated from the road by a landscaped median, along the north side of the road. It will connect to the city’s future Green Crescent Trail at Vineyard Road and Gateway Park and create a 3.2-mile recreational and alternative transportation connection between the city, the South Carolina Botanical Garden and the University.

How big is the existing Green Crescent Trail, and how do I find it?

Chad Carson, president, Friends of the Green Crescent Trail: The Green Crescent Trail is still in its early stages, but the City of Clemson will soon break ground in 2022 on a new 1.6-mile section of the trail beginning at Clemson Park, the city’s oldest park, and ending at Gateway Park on S.C. 93. This new phase will also connect to a recently built pump track and 1/4-mile loop trail at Clemson Park, as well as the Green Crescent Pedestrian Bridge which connects to Clemson Elementary School.

Q. What length will the Green Crescent Trail be and how long will it take?

Chad Carson, president, Friends of the Green Crescent Trail: A feasibility study shows this trailway could include about 40 miles of multi-modal pathways for cyclists, walkers, runners and others. If it is fully funded by the various municipalities, this network of trails would likely take about 20 years to complete and include connections in the towns of Central and Pendleton, which are still conceptual.

Q. What other important landmarks does the Green Crescent Trail hope to connect?

Robert Halfacre, mayor, City of Clemson: In addition to being a pathway for recreation and alternative transportation, plans call for the Green Crescent Trail to also be an amenity that features the important historical and cultural landmarks of both the city and University. For example, early plans exist to connect the trail network to the Clemson Area African American Museum and the Arts Center of Clemson, both located at 212 Butler St. The Green Crescent Trail, as it has been presented to the community, will also include public art installations, historical markers, and potentially be part of a Black History Trail project on and off-campus.

The SC Botanical Garden (SCBG) is adjacent to some of the project work under way. Can you offer the SCBG’s perspective including input from the community you are hearing?

Shannon Barrett, director, South Carolina Botanical Garden: We have worked hand-in-hand with university partners well in advance of the project to ensure that most of the construction disturbance is limited to the existing road right-of-way and will have little impact on the interior of the South Carolina Botanical Garden. We’ve heard from some community members who understandably feel a sense of loss for any tree along the project’s route, myself included, that had to be removed. We appreciate their concern because it demonstrates our community’s sense of connectedness to the natural environment. There are positive outcomes, including numerous long-term benefits such as a new wetland habitat, and safer access into and out of the garden for a growing number of patrons. We welcome visitors from near and far to visit the garden which remains open throughout the project as access to the garden will still be available. Come visit us!

What other projects are under way to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety on campus?

Todd Barnette, chief facilities officer, Clemson University: We have begun a project to install a sidewalk and lights along Old Stadium Road from Perimeter Road to the Madren Center. These will be installed on the north side of Old Stadium Road and on Madren Center Drive, and the project will enhance pedestrian safety for those walking between the campus and the Madren Center and Walker Golf Course. The plan is to have all this done by the start of the 2022 Fall semester. Parts of Old Stadium Road will be closed to cars, and drivers needing to get to the Madren Center should go there using Cherry Road instead. Next Summer we plan to proceed with the realignment of Old Stadium Road and Williamson Road to provide a much-improved intersection for pedestrians and vehicles. We are also partnering with the City of Clemson to install a traffic signal and turn lanes at Old Stone Church Road and West Cherry Road.

Clemson junior linebacker Trenton Simpson was named a second-team All-American, while redshirt senior offensive tackle Jordan McFadden garnered third-team All-American honors on Steele’s Offensive All-American Team.

Clemson super senior kicker B.T. Potter, meanwhile, was tabbed as a fourth-team All-American on Steele’s Special Teams All-American Team.

A former Top 5 national recruit who made an instant impact, earning Freshman All-America honors from several outlets in 2020 and earning a fourth-team All-American selection from Phil Steele in 2021, Murphy enters 2022 credited with 94 tackles (26.0 for loss), 11.0 sacks, five forced fumbles and three pass breakups in 963 snaps over 25 games (16 starts).

McFadden enters his third year as a starter in 2022 having played 1,971 career snaps over 42 career games (25 starts). He was a second-team All-ACC selection in 2021 and also collected second-team all-conference honors from the AP, PFF and Phil Steele. The Spartanburg, S.C., native played a team-high 872 offensive snaps over 13 games (all starts) last season, finishing the year as one of only four Clemson offensive or defensive players to start every game. His 872 snaps were the most by a Clemson offensive tackle since 2016 (Mitch Hyatt, 994).

Potter enters 2022 with a 53-of-71 career mark on field goals and a 185-of-186 mark on PATs in 55 career games (40 starts) and also enters 2022 averaging 64.26 yards on 368 career kickoffs with 280 touchbacks. He became Clemson’s school record holder in career field goals of both 40-plus and 50-plus yards in 2021 and enters 2022 ranked fourth in Clemson history in career points by a kicker (344), third in career PATs (185), fourth in career points (344) and seventh in made field goals (53). The Rock Hill, S.C., native became the first player in Clemson history to score 100 points in three different seasons and opened his career converting his first 122 consecutive PATs, a school record.

Clemson has been on a recruiting roll with seven commitments this month, but the Tigers received some negative news Tuesday about a prospect who was the first to commit for the 2023 class.

Wide receiver Nathaniel Joseph announced via Instagram he was decommitting from the Tigers after initially pledging on Sept. 10. The Miami, Florida, slot guy is ranked No. 105 overall and 16h at his position in the 247Sports Composite. He's the second 2023 recruit to decommit from Clemson following Texas tight end Reid Mikeska, who left the fold in mid-May less than a month after he committed.

"After talking things over with my family, we feel it's best for me to decommit and reopen my recruitment," Joseph posted on his account. "I want to thank Clemson and all of Clemson's staff for showing me love day in and day out. I want to thank (wide receivers) coach (Tyler) Grisham for all the love he's shown me and for taking a chance on me.

"It was a hard decision for me to make. But some things took place that me and my family didn't like, so I'll be reopening my recruitment. Thank you Clemson and Clemson fans. Recruitment 100 percent back open."

Joseph's abundant offers include South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame, Michigan, Oregon, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Mississippi, LSU, Florida, Louisville, Penn State, Kentucky, Florida State and Miami.

Joseph had been Clemson's second-highest ranked recruit regardless of position and third-highest position-wise among the 11 commits for 2023. Five-star quarterback Christopher Vizzina is No. 33 overall and sixth at his position and linebacker Jamal Anderson, who committed Monday, is 11th at his position and 172nd overall.

Clemson added wide receiver Noble Johnson from Rockwall, Texas, on Saturday, ranked No. 383 overall and the 45th receiver. The Tigers were ranked eighth in the team rankings prior to Joseph's announcement.
