EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan State baseball head coach Jake Boss Jr. announced that Matt Rembielak has joined the Spartan staff as the volunteer assistant coach.
Rembielak comes to MSU after two seasons at Eastern Michigan. Rembielak replaces Jordan Keur, who left the MSU staff to be the head coach at Lansing Community College.
“We’re excited to add Matt to our staff. He’s proven himself to be a dedicated hard worker and is extremely passionate about the game. He’s basically grown up in the dugout, so I think his passion for coaching and teaching is not only unmatched, but second-to-none. He’s going to be a very, very positive welcomed addition to our staff,” Boss said. “We’re grateful for Jordan Keur’s tenure with us, and wish him nothing but the best in his new opportunity at Lansing Community College.”
Rembielak was hired at Eastern Michigan by then EMU head coach and current MSU pitching coach Mark Van Ameyde.
At EMU, Rembielak assisted in the coaching of the Eagles’ hitters and outfielders, including mentoring junior infielder Zachary Owings, who was named to the All-Mid-American Conference Second Team and the All-MAC Defensive Team.
Prior to EMU, Rembielak was an assistant coach at Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio from 2015-16.
A native of Akron, Ohio, Rembielak played in his hometown at the University of Akron from 2012-15, where he was a four-year starter at shortstop. He went on to play one season for the Great Bend (Kan.) Boom, an independent baseball team, to conclude his playing career. Rembielak was a four-year starter at Bishop McGuinness High School in North Carolina, where he earned all-state accolades as a junior and all-conference honors as a senior.
Rembielak earned his degree in sport management from Akron in 2015.
His father, Rick Rembielak, was a 20-year collegiate head coach, leading the Kent State, Wake Forest and Akron programs.
