Orioles' Dunn to interview this week at LSU
Orioles minor league pitching coordinator Alan Dunn will interview on Thursday for the pitching coach job at Louisiana State University, confirmed President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail.
Dunn is considered one of the frontrunners for the job.
Dunn, a 49-year-old Alabama native, spent the previous three full seasons as the Orioles bullpen coach. Though he was not brought back to serve on manager Buck Showalter’s 2011 coaching staff, Dunn accepted the minor league pitching coordinator job, which had been formerly held by Dave Schmidt, who is now the coordinator of Sarasota Operations.
Dunn joined the Orioles coaching staff in August 2007 when then manager Dave Trembley hired him as the bullpen coach. Dunn had been the minor league pitching coordinator of the Chicago Cubs at the time.
The LSU pitching coach job opened when David Grewe left after three seasons to pursue other opportunities.
