It’s official – Jezierski is hired as baseball coachFinally, the boys baseball program will hear the words they couldn’t wait to hear: “Play ball!” In most cases, the hiring of a head baseball coach is a fairly straightforward procedure. But when it came to hiring a new head baseball coach at Cloquet High School, the situation was far from normal. And after much controversy and differences of opinion, the Cloquet School Board approved the hiring of Steve Jezierski as the head baseball coach for Cloquet High School by a vote of 4-2, with board members Jim Crowley and Sandy Crowley casting the dissenting votes. Jezierski was originally recommended for the job last fall after long-time head coach Dean Levinski resigned. However, some board members felt the hiring process was flawed due to a perceived conflict of interest by members of the hiring committee, the board decided to re-post the position. After it was again posted in late December, Jezierski was again the chosen candidate for the job – and this time it’s official.
