Former Lawrence Central baseball coach Matt Buczkowski has agreed to become the new Carmel baseball coach.

Carmel announced Tuesday that it has hired Matt Buczkowski as the next head coach of its baseball team.

Buczkowski, a South Bend native, spent the past four seasons at Lawrence Central and has been a head coach for a total of 13 seasons, according to Carmel athletics director Jim Inskeep.

The Bears went 8-18-1 under Buczkowski, 43, last season, falling 10-0 to Lawrence North in the sectional semifinals of the Class 4A state tournament. Overall, Buczkowski amassed a 55-44-1 record with the Bears, according to MaxPreps.

Buczkowski replaces Dan Roman, who resigned his position earlier this month. Last season, Roman led the Greyhounds to their first sectional championship since 2000. They advanced to the Class 4A regional championship before falling to Zionsville 8-4.

Buczkowski, once an assistant coach at Eastern Illinois, played college baseball at Butler and was drafted in the 37th round of the 1996 MLB draft by the Philadelphia Phillies.

Lawrence Central, meanwhile, already has begun its search for a new coach.
