Pawlowski Named Aztec Baseball Pitching Coach

San Diego State Head Baseball Coach Tony Gwynn has announced the addition of former Auburn Head Coach and Major League pitcher John Pawlowski to the Aztec baseball staff as SDSU's new pitching coach. Pawlowski brings with him 14 years' experience as a Division I head coach and six more as an assistant at nationally-ranked programs.


Mark Martinez


Head Coach

Mark Martinez begins his first season as the head coach at San Diego State after nine years as an Aztec assistant coach under the late Tony Gwynn.

Martinez helped Gwynn transform and build the program into what it is today. He has helped guide the Aztecs to three regional appearances in the past six years after an 18 year absence from the postseason. Along the way, he has guided the team to back-to-back Mountain West Championships.

He has also helped build an academic program that saw the highest APR in the history of the program last season, as well as the most scholar-athletes and highest team GPA in the history of the program.

Martinez has had 37 players drafted in his time at San Diego State, and had six of those draft picks make the major leagues (Stephen Strasburg, Addison Reed, Justin Masterson, Bruce Billings, Quintin Berry and Lance Zawadski). In addition, Martinez has helped guide 41 Aztecs to All-Mountain West honors and six Aztecs to All-American accolades.


John Pawlowski


Associate Head Coach/Pitching Coach

John Pawlowski recently completed his first year as the Pitching Coach at San Diego State University. The 2014 season was highlighted by the Aztecs winning the Mountain West Conference tournament and playing in the NCAA regionals hosted by University of Louisiana - Lafayette. The Aztecs won 42 games in 2014, the most since 2002 and the pitching staff ERA was 3.71, lowest since 1995. When SDSU hired John in 2013, Head Coach Tony Gwynn stated "John brings a wealth of experience with him to the position of pitching coach at San Diego State. We had a number of outstanding applicants and we feel John's the best fit for what we're trying to accomplish in our program. His experience as a pitcher at both the collegiate and Major League levels along with his time as a collegiate coach with nationally recognized programs makes him a valuable asset to our team." Previously, John's five seasons at Auburn made him the longest-tenured coach at Auburn since Hal Baird's 16-year run and the fourth-longest tenured overall. In 2013 he became the third-most winningest coach in Auburn history in terms of wins.

In five seasons at Auburn, the 14-year head-coaching veteran guided the team to a 167-127 (.568) record (505-318 overall) and took the program from six consecutive fifth- or sixth-place finishes in the Southeastern Conference's Western Division to a 2010 Division Championship, its first since 1995, and a 2010 NCAA Regional Host, winning 43 games during the remarkable and memorable 2010 campaign.

In addition, Pawlowski's ability to guide the team to four consecutive SEC Tournament appearances from 2010 through 2013 marked the first time Auburn had appeared in the conference tournament in consecutive seasons since it went for seven straight years from 1997-2003. It also moved Auburn into a rare category among SEC teams as it was one of only five Southeastern Conference programs to play in the conference tournament in each season from 2010-13 and one of just two from the SEC West.


Joe Oliveira


Assistant Coach

Joe Oliveira enters his second season with the Aztecs and first as a full time coach and recruiting coordinator. He was promoted to a full time position and named the recruiting coordinator at the conclusion of the 2014 season.

"It's (Joe) Oliveira's second year here, and he came in last year and did a phenomenal job not only on the field, but in the Aztec community and really earned the job," commented Head Coach Mark Martinez. "We put a lot on him recruiting wise, and in a short amount of time he's done a phenomenal job getting us to go out to see some of the best talent in Southern California and beyond."

Along with his role as recruiting coordinator, Oliveira serves as the team's hitting, catching and outfield coach, as well as coach third base during games. He also assists Coach Martinez with the team's academic program, which saw the most scholar athletes and highest team GPA in the history of the program during the 2014 season.


Brandon Pullen


Assistant Coach

Former Aztec pitcher Brandon Pullen being his first year as San Diego State's assistant coach. In that capacity he will lead the SDSU Baseball strength and conditioning as well as assist with other coaching duties.

Pullen played two years of professional baseball in the Seattle Mariners organization after being drafted in the 37th round of the 2008 Major League draft. He followed that up with one season playing independent league ball.

Pullen was a left-handed pitcher at San Diego State during the 2007 and 2008 seasons where he served primarily as a let-handed situational reliever. During his two seasons he made 39 appearances out of the bullpen and finished with a 1-0 record while striking out almost a better per inning.


Cooper Sholder


Director of Baseball Operations

Cooper Sholder takes over duties as the team's Director of Baseball Operations for the 2015 season. He will assist the program by handling routine administrative duties and will also be involved in the organization and coaching for the Aztec Baseball Camps.

He assumes the position after serving as the teamâ€TMs student manager the past four seasons. In that capacity he assisted the SDSU coaching staff in the day-to-day operation of the baseball program as well as performing specific duties during game days.

As the team manager, Sholder was also involved in the running of the various youth camps conducted by the program as he coached campers ages 5-18 years in basic baseball fundamentals. He also served as the programâ€TMs liaison to the Big Brother-Big Sister Program.
