John Pawlowski Biography
Auburn University baseball head coach John Pawlowski was born on September 6th, 1963 in Johnson City, NY. After starring in high school, Pawlowski was a pitcher for the Clemson Tigers from 1983-85. After his graduation, Pawlowski took several years away from baseball but was eventually drawn to return.
In 1994, Pawlowski was hired as an assistant at his alma mater. He remained there until 1998, helping to develop a number of pitchers taken in the MLB draft, and his performance earned him the head coaching job at the College of Charleston in 2000. Over nine seasons, Pawlowski led the College of Charleston to three 40 plus win seasons (and two 39 win seasons), five NCAA tournament berths, two SoCon tournament championships in 2006 and 2007, and a trip to the NCAA Super Regional in 2006. His great success there eventually attracted Auburn’s attention and the university hired him as its baseball head coach in late 2008.
Pawlowski inherited a slumping program at Auburn and his 2008-9 season reflected that; the team went 31-25 overall but had an ugly 11-19 SEC record. However, a strong offseason recruiting period and further implementation of Pawlowski’s coaching style led to a dramatic improvement in 2009-10 as the Tigers went 43-21 and were the SEC West Champions. As such, Pawlowski’s future and the future of the Auburn baseball program look bright.
