McMillan hired as new Pulaski baseball coach
PULASKI – Pulaski High School teacher Tate McMillan is the school’s new varsity baseball head coach.
He replaces Dennis Bogacz, who resigned following the season.
McMillan, a special education teacher, has been with the Pulaski Community School District since the 2019-20 school year.
Before that, he taught at Lombardi Middle School in Green Bay from 2017-19.
During that time, he served as head baseball coach at Green Bay Southwest.
He also taught at Savannah Christian Preparatory School in Georgia from 2012-15, where he was an assistant baseball coach.
He also served as pitching coach at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tenn., from 2010-12.
He earned a bachelor of science degree from Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville in 2010 and earned a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Lincoln Memorial University in 2012.
McMillan said he had been looking for a larger school district with a small-town feel.
Pulaski athletic director Janel Batten said she’s excited about the hire.
“(McMillan) has extensive knowledge of the game and has had many successful experiences playing and coaching,” she said. “His portfolio of coaching experience includes both head high school coaching as well as at the collegiate level. As an educator, he relates well with young adults and has experience teaching fundamentals. We are fortunate to have him lead our baseball program into the future.”
McMillan said he’s also excited to take over the program.
“My team will play fast with lots of energy and will attack every day,” he said.
He’s married to Brooke, a 2008 Pulaski graduate and former varsity softball player.
They have three children: Elle, 6; Crew, 4; and Cain, 2.
