Todd Interdonato will be named Boston College’s next head baseball coach, sources told New England Baseball Journal on Wednesday afternoon.
Interdonato spent the previous 16 years building an outstanding program at Wofford College, leading the Terriers to back-to-back 40-win seasons that resulted in the first two Southern Conference regular-season championships in program history. The back-to-back SoCon Coach of the Year is the winningest coach in Wofford history with 455 career victories.
Filling the highest-profile Division 1 baseball coaching vacancy in New England in years, Interdonato will take over for Mike Gambino, a 1999 BC graduate who had led the program at his alma mater for 13 seasons before being named the new Penn State skipper last week. Gambino took his new post with the Nittany Lions just weeks after signing a contract extension that was set to keep him on the Heights for another five years.
The BC program was transformed under Gambino, who left on a high after his team won 37 games and advanced to the NCAA Tuscaloosa Regional final in 2023. Not only did the Eagles make a pair of NCAA tournament appearances and develop 35 MLB draft picks under his watch, but he oversaw the development of sparkling new home facilities in the Harrington Athletics Village and Pete Frates Center on the Brighton campus.
