Brad Bohannon was fired as Alabama’s baseball coach on Thursday after what athletic director Greg Byrne called a “violation” of university standards.

According to The Athletic, Bohannon’s dismissal was due to his connection with an ongoing betting scandal. Multiple states have instructed sports books to halt wagers on Alabama baseball games after “suspicious” betting activity was detected in the Tide’s 8-6 loss to LSU in late April.

Alabama starting pitcher Luke Holman was a late scratch for the game in question, with Hagan Banks getting the start instead. According to the Tuscaloosa News, Bohannon said Banks learned he would start approximately 1 hour before the game began. LSU, the No. 1-ranked team in the country, jumped out to a 8-1 lead before Alabama mounted a comeback attempt. LSU swept the series.

Here is Byrne wrote in his statement on Thursday:

“Greg Byrne announced he has initiated the termination process for head baseball coach Brad Bohannon for, among other things, violating the standards, duties, and responsibilities expected of University employees.

“Bohannon has been relieved of all duties and Jason Jackson will serve as the interim head coach. There will be no further comment at this time pending an ongoing review.”

According to D1Baseball’s Kendall Rogers, no Alabama baseball players have been implicated in the investigation.

Jason Jackson, who has been Alabama’s pitching coach since 2018, will serve as Alabama’s head coach for the remainder of the season.
