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.

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.
