Malden Catholic today announced the elevation of Pat Driscoll to head baseball coach and Athletic Director, both from interim status.
Driscoll took over the head baseball job in late May, just before the start of the MIAA playoffs, after Steve Freker resigned suddenly. Driscoll had also been the school's interim athletic director as the late Chris Serino's health deteriorated. Serino passed away last month.
Driscoll had held the position of Assistant Director of Athletics at Malden Catholic since 2006, and he has been a member of the school’s coaching staff since 2001.
"Pat Driscoll has extensive experience as a coach at the high school level,” Malden Catholic headmaster Edward C. Tyrrell said in a statement. “He has proven his ability and value to our sports program as Assistant Athletic Director. He is a leader who focuses on the values, ideals, and mission when working with our students, families, faculty and staff. We consider Pat a true asset to Malden Catholic and to the Malden Catholic Athletics Program.”
Over the past 12 years, Driscoll’s coaching experience has included hockey, baseball and golf. He is presently MC's assistant varsity hockey Coach and junior varsity golf coach. He was Austin Prep's junior varsity hockey coach from November 2003 to 2005, and served as a coach of the Intercity Baseball League from June 2002 to 2007.
Driscoll is a member of the Massachusetts Baseball Coaches Association, the Massachusetts Hockey Coaches Association and the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association.
