Southern baseball coach Roger Cador walks back from statements about retiring after next season

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Longtime Southern baseball coach Roger Cador walked back from statements Wednesday that he was planning to retire at the end of next season given the opportunity.

Originally, Cador said, if Athletic Director Roman Banks allowed him to return next season, he would, but that it would be his final with the University. He later clarified to say he was only considering retirement after next season, and that he had not settled on nor discussed any specifics with Banks at that time.

In his original statement Cador said, “I’m only going to be here one more year at most. Then I’ll be going down the road to greener pastures.”

Banks declined to comment on any developments in Cador’s future until after the season when the two can sit down and have a full discussion on the topic, but emphasized that no decision had been made at the time and that he has not yet spoken with Cador about any specifics regarding next year being his last.

As of now, Banks said, the most important concern is getting the team ready for Sunday’s game against Texas Southern that will decide if Southern makes the Southwestern Athletic Conference tournament.
