Seminole announced it has hired Dr. Jeff Pincus as the school's baseball coach.
Pincus, a chemistry teacher at the school, takes over the program from Greg Olsen, who stepped down in June to coach at Calvary Christian.
Pincus has been involved with Warhawks' baseball for years. He inherits a team that returns most of its core players, including Division I-A recruits Brett Phillips (N.C. State) and catcher Mike Mann (USF).
"Dr. Pincus ...possesses a strong baseball background along with an understanding of the community expectations of Seminole High School baseball," Seminole principal Walter Weller said in an e-mail. "After reviewing the many resumes submitted for this coveted position, it became quite clear that Dr. Pincus' experience, leadership, knowledge of the players and his ability as a professional educator make him the natural and logical person selected."
Olsen coached the Warhawks for six seasons and had a 128-40 overall record.
