Former UNC coach, player joins UNCW baseball staff

Posted August 7, 2012

— Assistant Coach Robert Woodard was named the pitching coach at UNC Wilmington Tuesday, UNCW head coach Mark Scalf announced.

Woodard joins the Seahawks staff after two successful years as a member of the Tar Heels coaching staff. The Charlotte, N.C., native joined the Tar Heels prior to the 2010 postseason and has been a part of 97 wins during the span.

"This opportunity would not be possible without being on Coach Fox's staff for the past two-plus seasons," Woodard said. "I'd like to thank Coach Fox for giving me my start. I'm looking forward to continuing to build upon what has been established here at UNCW."

Woodard will take over UNCW pitching coach duties from another former Tar Heel as Jason Howell joined the Georgia Tech staff. Howell spent five years with the Seahawks after serving as an assistant coach with the Tar Heels for two years.

A search for Woodard's replacement is currently underway.
