In a statement, at the time of his retirement he as coach, Casey gave some insight into his decision.
“I have always expected that I be at the same level at which we ask our players day in and day out, and right now, I’m not sure I can’t do that, but I’m also not certain I can,” he said. “Therefore, I believe it is the right time to step down as head coach of the Oregon State baseball program.”
