Florida State Baseball is finalizing the contract with Notre Dame coach Link Jarrett, sources said.

Sources told ESPN that the state of Florida is finalizing an agreement to appoint Link Jarrett of Notre Dame as the school’s next baseball coach.

The deal is expected to be finalized on Friday with a news conference on Monday. Sources said Jarrett informed the Notre Dame team of his departure at a meeting on Friday morning.

With three years of outstanding performances at Notre Dame, Jarrett emerged as one of the top coaches in the sport. He has twice been named National Coach of the Year and in 2021 he was ACC Coach.

Jarrett led 86–32 at Notre Dame and led the Irish to the 2022 Men’s College World Series, the third match in school history. In 10 seasons as head coach at Notre Dame and UNC Greensboro, Jarrett is 301-198.

He was a two-time All-American shortstop in the state of Florida, where he played from 1991 to 1994. Jarrett is of Tallahassee origin and his wife Jennifer is a former Florida state cheerleader.

Jarrett will replace Mike Martin Jr., who was eliminated by Florida State earlier this month after three average seasons, including a total of 77-54 records and 36-33 records in ACC play.

Now Jarrett is heading home to an ACC rival, where he will be tasked with creating another event capable of leading him to the Men’s College World Series.
