UMES Hawks have new baseball coach; O'Neil to stay on staff

PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland -- Charlie Goens is the new head coach for the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s baseball team.

Which seems odd, because the Hawks already had John O’Neil, who had been the interim head coach for the past two seasons. O’Neil will remain on the staff as an associate head coach, but Goens will be the head skipper.

Eastern Shore announced the hiring of Goens on Wednesday, Sept. 14, but he announced that he would be the new head coach in Princess Anne on his Twitter account on Aug. 30. Goens comes to Princess Anne after taking a season off from coaching college baseball.

“Charlie emerged as the top candidate from a lengthy list of qualified candidates,” said Keith Davidson, Eastern Shore’s athletic director. “His experience at many levels and a proven record of finding top talent to play for his teams will help us continue moving this program in the right direction.”
