Tony DeCarlo tabbed
as new Marian head coach

When Marian Catholic takes the baseball diamond in 2015, it will be with new leadership in private school coaching veteran Tony DeCarlo. On staff at Marian since 2012, DeCarlo will take over the reins from Phil Wail, who recently resigned and led Marian Catholic to the 2012 IHSA Class 3A Baseball state championship.

 

DeCarlo will take on the challenge of competing in the extremely competitive East Suburban Catholic with a squad that has compiled 37 wins in the two years in which he’s coached at Marian Catholic. (MORE)


May 29: Visiting Marian Catholic fell behind in the first inning, 3-0, and was never able to rebound on May 29, as the Spartans were eliminated in the semifinals of the Marist 4A Regional by the host RedHawks, 8-2. The teams had split a pair of one-run contests in ESCC play last week.

The Marian deficit reached 8-0 before the Spartans pushed across two runs in the top of the seventh inning.

 

Sophs: Marian (10-19) edged the RedHawks, 8-7, as John Kavanaugh allowed just one earned run in four innings of relief. Dan Gutierrez and Jack Doyle each went 2-for-4 with two RBI.

 

Frosh: Marian (16-11) topped Marist, 9-5, as Austin Richie tossed a complete-game five-hitter and got support from B.J. Johnson (3-for-4, run, two steals) and Montrel Blade (double, two RBI).

DeCarlo tabbed new baseball boss

“It is truly an honor to be considered for this position at Marian Catholic,” according to DeCarlo, who holds degrees from St. Ambrose (football student-athlete) and Trinity Christian College. “I look forward to the challenge and can't wait to work extremely hard with every athlete within the baseball program to make them a better person, a better student and better athlete as they prepare for their future endeavors.

 

“I owe a lot of people many thanks for this opportunity, most importantly, my wife and family for giving me the support. I also thank previous coaches or mentors who prepared me to succeed at this level of competition.”

 

DeCarlo, also a football coach at Marian, has previous experience in both sports at Guerin High School and his alma mater St. Laurence High School. His father, Bob, is a longtime Catholic League coach and administrator.

 

"Tony DeCarlo will be fortunate to be an in-the-building baseball head coach,” according to Marian Athletic Director Dave Mattio. “Tony will bring an instant energy to the program.  Constant visibility and accessibility will be an asset to the communication skills necessary to continue the growth of the program.

 

"Tony will profit from his background of his family's involvement in education and high school coaching and administration. He has set a vision for the baseball program of Marian Catholic.  He will work to hire and train individuals to implement that vision. He has committed to work the process to completion.”

 

A 1998 graduate of Marian, Wail will look to pursue other positions in the baseball community after compiling 102 victories in six seasons with the Spartans, including the 2012 state crown.

 

“Phil Wail has resigned his position and his tenure was marked by success and growth - both on the field and in the facilities area,” Mattio said. “He is to be commended for his ownership of the program, his energy to improve the program, and his initiatives to improve facilities.”
