Former University of Memphis pitcher Brandon Rowan has joined the Pitt baseball coaching staff announced head coach Joe Jordano. Rowan, who most recently held the head coaching position at Crichton College in Memphis, Tenn., joins the Panthers’ staff as a volunteer assistant coach.

“I am very pleased to have a coach of Brandon Rowan’s character and experience join our staff,” said head coach Jordano.

“I feel his pitching background and the fact that he has some years as a head coach will bring a great deal to not only our pitching staff, but to our program as a whole. Coach Rowan came to us highly recommended from Coach Schoenrock, head coach at the University of Memphis, who I believe is one of the best pitching guys in baseball. Coach Rock had high praise for Brandon as an individual and as a coach. I believe Brandon has a very bright future and we are fortunate he is with us.”

While at the helm of the Comets, Rowan guided the team to its first berth in the Region XI Tournament after finishing third at the Transouth Conference Tournament.

Inside The Auburn Clubhouse With Coach Pawlowski

SEPTEMBER 8, 2008
To say that it has been a busy fall around Auburn Baseball would be an understatement. Since Friday June 20th, my staff (Scott Foxhall,Matt Heath, Jeff Duncan) and I have been putting forth the effort required to make the transition run smoothly and begin laying the foundation for fall practice. We certainly are very excited and anxious to begin the quest and challenges that lie ahead for our program. Auburn Baseball has a very long and proud history that we certainly are very thankful to be part of. The players,staff and coaches are ready to commitment themselves to making Auburn Baseball a winning combination.

The NCAA has many rules and regulations as it pertains to fall practice and the number of players and workouts we are allowed to have. Currently, we are entering into our 3rd week of individual practice and have started to settle into a weekly routine. This pertains to not only on the baseball field, but certainly in the classroom. I believe that the adjustment period that is taking place both for the players and coaching staff is going very well at this time . For the freshman and new players, they are just beginning to understand what commitment they have to make in order to be a successful student-athlete here at Auburn. For the returning players, its time to step up and help lead this program back to where we want to be, both on and off the field. FULL STORY
