Jared Suwyn coached Mira Mesa to a 19-12 finish in 2012.
Jared Suwyn, who has an extensive background in San Diego high school baseball, has been named pitching coach at Cal State San Marcos as the university moves from the NAIA to an NCAA Division II program.
In addition, Suwyn will assist in recruiting, scheduling, student-athlete support and travel.
Suwyn, 30, replaces Pat Hause, who retired after helping the Cougars through their first seven seasons.
Suwyn played for Cal State San Marcos head coach Dennis Pugh while Pugh was at Mission Bay High, going 13-0 as a senior and being named first-team All-San Diego Section.
Suwyn played two seasons at San Diego State, appearing in 31 games in the 2005-06 seasons.
He played his final season of college ball at Cal State San Marcos, going 2-3 with a pair of saves and a 3.49 ERA in 56 2/3 innings in 2008.
“I’m excited to help Cal State San Marcos continue its winning tradition,” Suwyn said. “It’s an honor to be on a coaching staff led by Coach Pugh. He’s a great teacher, and I look forward to learning from him.”
Suwyn spent the last three seasons as the pitching coach at Palomar College, helping the Comets to the State Community College Final Four last season.
He was the head coach at Kearny High, going 23-30 in two seasons, and led Mira Mesa to a 19-12 finish in 2012.
