St. Joe names Bauer new varsity boys basketball coach

South Bend St. Joe introduced Mike Bauer as its new varsity boys basketball coach Monday.

Bauer, a 1996 Clay graduate, has served as the school's JV coach for the last five years. He feels that experience will make for an easy transition for players since both sides know each other well.

Bauer replaces Marty Harshman, who stepped down last month to take a job in development at Notre Dame.

It was an eventful week for Bauer who accepted the job at St. Joe on Thursday and then became a father on Friday as his wife gave birth to their first child Emma Rosa.

"It's been a whirlwind of a last few days but I wouldn't change it for anything," Bauer said.
