Brian Karlet has been named the Georgetown College Baseball Interim Head Coach, the school announced on Tuesday. The Georgetown College graduate takes over for Erik Hagen who resigned on Nov. 21.
Karlet is in his third season with the Tigers, serving as an assistant coach for more than two years prior. He spent his collegiate baseball career as an outfielder and was named an All-Conference player in 2002 and earned a bachelor’s degree in communications in 2003. After graduation he served as Director of Baseball Operations for Marshall University for two years, where he received a master’s degree in Athletic Administration.
“I am grateful for the opportunity given to me,” said Karlet. “Being an alumni of this college, I am very excited about the direction this program is heading and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead in leading this team in the highly-competitive Mid-South Conference.”
The Tigers are receiving votes in the NAIA Pre-Season Coaches’ Poll after losing 12 seniors from the 2009 team that finished second in the MSC and 32-22 overall.
