One of the greatest to ever do it not just at Notre Dame but in all of college baseball has officially retired.
After stops at St. Thomas and Air Force, Mainieri took the Notre Dame job and had the Irish baseball program humming as they qualified for the NCAA baseball tournament nine times in his 12 seasons under the golden dome, including their 2002 trip to the College World Series.
Mainieri took the LSU job after the 2006 season and took the Tigers to great heights, winning the College World Series in 2009. In his time with LSU he led the Tigers to four additional College World Series appearances and four other trips to the super regionals.
In all Mainieri went an incredible 641-283-3 in 15 years at LSU and 533-213-3 during his 12 years at Notre Dame.
LSU fell to Tennessee in the Knoxville Super Regional on Sunday which ended the season for the Tigers and Mainieri, as previously announced, officially retired after the game.
All the best in the next chapter to one of the best to ever do it in college baseball.
