AUBURN-Auburn Athletics Director Jay Jacobs announced Friday
that John Pawlowski has been named head baseball coach. Pawlowski spent the previous nine seasons as the head coach at the College of
Charleston, where he led the program to three NCAA postseason berths,
one Super Regional appearance and four Southern Conference titles.

    "This is a tremendous opportunity and I'm looking forward to
helping bring the Auburn baseball program back to national
prominence," Pawlowski said. "There is a rich history and
tradition here at Auburn and I plan on working tirelessly to make this a
national contender."

    Pawlowski posted a 338-192-1 record during his tenure at College
of Charleston, including a 180-67 record from 2004-07, the most wins in
school and Southern Conference history for a four-year span.

    Under his direction, Pawloswki led the Cougars to
three-consecutive NCAA Regional appearances from 2004-06, while winning
Southern Conference regular season titles in 2004 and 2005. His 2004
squad set a then-school record with 47 wins and bettered that mark in
2005 with 48 victories.  The 2004 conference title and NCAA appearance
were both firsts in the program's history.

    Pawlowski, 44, led Charleston to unprecedented heights in 2006.
