Following regional run, Auburn extends baseball coach John Pawlowski's contract through 2015

Baseball coach John Pawlowski cashed in on Auburn's regional run last year, agreeing to a two-year contract extension that will run through 2015.

Pawlowski will have a guaranteed salary of $315,000, up from $300,000, according to the Opelika-Auburn News.

"Our staff will continue to work and build a program that we all can be proud of both on and off the field and in the classroom,” Pawlowski said. “Winning the West and having the opportunity to not only participate in but to host a NCAA Regional last year will certainly help us as we prepare for the 2011 season and beyond.”

In his second season, Pawlowski guided the Tigers to a 43-21 record and their first SEC West division title in 15 years. Auburn's 20-10 SEC record was its best in school history. In two years, Pawlowski has gone 74-46.

“We’re very appreciative of what John and his staff have done with the baseball program since their arrival at Auburn,” Auburn athletics director Jay Jacobs said. “Winning the SEC West and hosting an NCAA Regional certainly made this past season a memorable one, and we look forward to them continuing to build off the success they have achieved.”

Auburn had 11 players selected in the MLB Draft last season, a school record.

I heard that we added an ice hockey team. Is that true?
