Is Ed Servais Leaving Creighton?

As I told you on Wednesday’s six o’clock newscast, Creighton baseball coach Ed Servais has been contacted by Wake Forest about its head coaching vacancy. A source close to the situation tells KETV that a decision could come this weekend.

Servais just finished his sixth season with the Bluejays. He has averaged nearly 40 wins per season. The three-time Missouri Valley coach of the year has led Creighton to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances.

Meanwhile, Wake Forest chose not to renew the contract of Rick Rembielak after five seasons on the job. The Demon Deacons finished last in the ACC this year, failing to qualify for the conference tournament.

When reached by phone on Wednesday, Servais declined to comment.

Servais could have a decision to make. He has been down this road before, but this opportunity could be too good to pass up. Does he stay at Creighton and continue to push this program to its limits (which it may already have reached)? Or does he head to a disfunctional program in a larger conference and build from the ground up?

There would likely be a considerable pay raise, but I’m sure this decision will be less about money and more about happiness.

What do you think?

Stay tuned…

  1. This would be great news for Creighton, get rid of a overrated coach and get someone in there that will bring the program back to the caliber of the 90’s. How did Creighton go from playing Texas, Fresno State, Oklahoma State, ect. to playing North Dakoda, Stoney Brook, and South Dakota State. Let him go to WF and bring in a Creighton coach with tie’s to the program who will again elevate the program and play a competetive schedule.
