Mike Bianco Biography
University of Mississippi head coach began his baseball career as a player at LSU. Bianco played catcher for the Tigers from 1988-89 but transferred to Indian River Community College in Florida. Playing for a smaller school earned him a feature role and team captaincy in 1989 and the group made an incredible run to third place in the College World Series.
After his playing days, Bianco spent almost a decade in various assistant positions before settling in as the head coach at Mississippi in 2001. Over the last ten seasons, Bianco has compiled a 198-110 head coaching record-percentage-wise the best in school history-and has also enjoyed a high degree of post-season success. The Rebels have been to seven NCAA tournaments, including three NCAA Super Regionals, won two SEC West Championships (2005 and 2009), and won the 2006 SEC Tournament. However, though the Rebels have come within one game on three different occasions, Bianco has never led them to the College World Series. Looking forward, reaching the highest level of competition in college baseball would serve as Bianco’s crowning achievement and cement his reputation as one of the best in the business.
