Coaching career

On June 20, 2008, Pawlowski was named the head baseball coach of the Auburn Tigers.[2] In 2009, his first season with Auburn, the Tigers finished with a 31-25 record, and just 11 wins in SEC play. In 2010, he responded with a 38-17 and 20 SEC win season, making it the most SEC wins an Auburn team has ever had in the regular season. The team had a losing league record for the next three seasons, however, and Pawlowski was fired at the end of the 2013 season.[3]

On June 4, 2015, Pawlowski was named the head coach of the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.[4]
