D211 Post: Hawks have new head baseball coach


Andrew Wulbecker has been named as the HEHS head baseball coach.

Andrew Wulbecker has been named head baseball coach at Hoffman Estates High School.  Wulbecker takes over the program from Chuck Abbot, who stepped down earlier this year after two years as the Hawks head coach.

“We are excited to see Andrew take the reins of the very team he played for as a student-athlete,” said Hoffman Estates High School Principal Josh Schumacher.  “Andrew already has a well established rapport with our Hawks athletes and is a great fit to lead our program.”

Wulbecker has worked at Hoffman Estates High School since 2016, serving as a Title 1 Attendance Interventionist.  He spent the past season as the baseball team’s assistant coach and also worked as an assistant football coach with the varsity program.  As a student at Hoffman Estates High School, he earned the baseball program’s MVP for the 2002 season.

“Having Coach Wulbecker lead the program he excelled at as a player adds new dimension to the team” said Hoffman Estates High School Athletic Director Steve Lacni.  “His perspective from both sides of our baseball program will help him build strong connections with our student-athletes.”

Wulbecker earned a bachelor’s degree in Sports Management from North Central College in 2013.  In addition to playing four years of baseball at Hoffman Estates High School Wulbecker also played baseball for both Harper College and North Central College.
