Dennis Bogacz is the new Pulaski High School head varsity baseball coach.

Bogacz, a PHS graduate and a longtime Pulaski Community School District physical education teacher, replaces Tony Logue, who accepted a job with the Oconto Falls School District.

Bogacz has a vast range of coaching experience from youth sports up to the head varsity level.  At various levels, he has coached baseball, softball, track, speed development and football.  He is a former PHS multi-sport athlete and head varsity football coach. He was also head football coach at Darlington High School for eight years where he led the team to seven undefeated seasons and conference championships.

Bogacz was also head varsity baseball coach at Darlington High School in 2005. In 1994, he served as head junior varsity baseball coach at Wauwatosa West High School.

He played baseball and football at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh prior to transferring to UW-Whitewater, where he also played both sports. Bogacz was selected to the UW-Whitewater Athletic Hall of Fame in 2013.

“I am very excited to have Dennis join our Red Raider athletic family,” said PHS athletic director Janel Batten. “Dennis has a wealth of playing and coaching experience and has great vision for building a program. I am excited for our student athletes and the Pulaski baseball community.”

Bogacz is excited about the opportunity.

“The enthusiasm in Pulaski is at an all-time high right now with the amazing Field of Dreams project taking place and all the programs excelling at a high level,” Bogacz said. “So to be chosen to lead a program with such a strong tradition as Pulaski baseball has is quite an honor.”

Having two children in the Pulaski School District and being a Pulaski alumni, Bogacz looks forward to giving his time and talents to the student-athletes, families and community members, he added.
