This season marked Rooney’s return to LSU since his departure in 2008. He was head coach at Central Florida from 2009 to 2015, then served as Alabama’s pitching coach and associate head coach in 2016. Rooney also coached at Houston from 2017 to 2021 and spent two seasons as an assistant at Purdue before rejoining LSU.
