CSUB tabs Macaluso as next head baseball coach

At a press conference held Monday at CSUB, Bob Macaluso was named the Roadrunners' new head baseball coach. Macaluso served as an assistant for the 'Runners during the 2015 season.

Bob Macaluso acknowledges he joined Bill Kernen’s coaching staff at Cal State Bakersfield a year ago to perhaps lay the groundwork to eventually become the Roadrunners’ head baseball coach.

That came to fruition Monday. Macaluso, 51, was introduced as Kernen’s successor before an Icardo Room crammed with his players and CSUB administrators, athletics department staff, boosters and students.

“Every coach would like to become a head coach of a Division I program,” said Macaluso, who spent nine seasons as a head coach at Division III Muhlenberg
