La Salle Names New Head Baseball Coach
Mr. Werman came to La Salle with a broad background in baseball and coaching. A graduate of the University of Virginia in engineering, Mr. Werman played for the Cavaliers as a four-year starter at second base and catcher. He played for the New York Mets organization in the Appalachian League and later for the Washington Wild Things in the independent Frontier League.
Mr. Werman was an assistant coach for Oakton High School (VA) and for the University of Virginia during his graduate study. He went on to coach at George Mason and Radford Universities until coming to Saint Joseph's in the summer of 2012, where he worked under head coach Fritz Hamburg for the past two seasons before coming to La Salle as a teacher of mathematics and science.
A coach-parent-administrative search committee at La Salle College High School reviewed and interviewed candidates for the position and made recommendations to the school administration.
"We are pleased to welcome Kyle Werman and the experience he brings to continue the solid successes of La Salle baseball led by Coach Parisi for so many years," said Michael O'Toole, Principal of La Salle. "At the same time, we thank the baseball search committee representing coaches, administrators, and parents which reviewed and recommended candidates from an outstanding and competitive applicant pool."
