Mark Martinez


Head Coach

Mark Martinez begins his first season as the head coach at San Diego State after nine years as an Aztec assistant coach under the late Tony Gwynn.

Martinez helped Gwynn transform and build the program into what it is today. He has helped guide the Aztecs to three regional appearances in the past six years after an 18 year absence from the postseason. Along the way, he has guided the team to back-to-back Mountain West Championships.

He has also helped build an academic program that saw the highest APR in the history of the program last season, as well as the most scholar-athletes and highest team GPA in the history of the program.

Joe Oliveira


Assistant Coach/Recruiting Coordinator

Joe Oliveira enters his third season with the Aztecs as the hitting coach/ recruiting coordinator after helping guide the team to Mountain West Championships in each of his first two seasons, including back to back 40-win seasons, and consecutive NCAA Regional appearances. Oliveira leads the recruiting effort, which has seen the 2014 recruiting class ranked 19th in the country by Baseball America and the 2015 recruiting class ranked 17th in the country by Perfect Game.

Along with being the program's recruiting coordinator, Oliveira's responsibilities include working with all the hitters, catchers, outfielders, as well as coach third base during the games. He also assists Coach Martinez with all aspects of the program, including the academic program, which has set new records each of the last two years with a new record number of scholar athletes (22) and new team GPA (3.01) program highs.

Over Oliveira's first two seasons the Aztecs have seen a rise in batting average and fielding percentage each year. There have been 12 Aztecs drafted over the past two years, including seven hitters, none of which had been drafted before. Aztec catchers have thrown out over 50% of base stealers under Oliveira, with each starting catcher the past two years being named to the All-Mountain West Team, as well as being named the Mountain West Tournament MVP (Haynal 2014, Zavala 2015). Each starting catcher the past two seasons were also drafted and gone on to successful starts in their professional careers.


Joseph Centanni


Director of Baseball Operations

Centanni spent four seasons playing at the University of the Pacific as an all-around talent as he starred as the Tigers' ace on the pitching staff, designated hitter, outfielder and first baseman. He earned two All-Big West selections throughout his career including second team honors as a utility player as a senior in 2009. Upon his graduation with a degree in communications, Centanni then played for two seasons in the Baltimore Orioles organization.

After his playing days ended due to injury, Centanni immediately began his coaching career. He spent his first year assisting at Francis Parker High school. The following season he was named the head varsity baseball coach at The Bishop's School in his hometown of San Diego. In one season, Centanni was able to turn a struggling program into a playoff team as the Knights earned a home playoff game for the first time in years.

In addition to coaching the Knights, Centanni also worked as an associate scout for the Orioles in the San Diego Area. As a part of the Orioles, Centanni spent time recruiting a number of high school athletes to play for the Fall scout ball program.

He spent the 2015 season as the Assistant Coach at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California.
