      Jamie Kachmarik begins his third season with the Seahawks in 2012-13 and his eighth alongside UNCW skipper Buzz Peterson.

       Kachmarik coached with Peterson for two seasons at Coastal Carolina before moving to Boone with Peterson in 2009-10. At ASU, Kachmarik served as associate head coach and assisted with recruiting, where he built a solid track record in finding budding talent.

      As the primary recruiter at Coastal, Kachmarik signed one Big South Player-of-the-Year pick, two Big South Freshmen-of-the-Year and four Big South All-Freshman selections. The Chanticleers won 83 games during his tenure and posted a 20-win season in 2005-06. The 2005-06 campaign was Coastal's first 20-win season since 1992-93.

      The 1997 Bowling Green graduate has a history of attracting players that have been successful on and off the court. Kachmarik recruited CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine First-Team Academic All-American and 2007-08 Big South Male Scholar Athlete-of-the-Year Jack Leasure.

      Prior to his tenure at Coastal, the 34-year-old spent three seasons at William and Mary, where he worked with former head coach Rick Boyages. He recruited two-time First-Team All-CAA selection and 2004 Academic All-American Adam Hess, along with two All-Rookie selections, to the Willamsburg campus.

      Kachmarik started his coaching career as the video coordinator at Ohio State. During his time with the Buckeyes, former coach Jim O'Brien's squad earned a Big Ten title and a trip to the 1999 Final Four. In Columbus, Kachmarik played a vital role in scouting opponents and organizing summer team camps.

      Kachmarik and Peterson originally crossed paths in 2000 when Peterson and the Mountaineers squared off against the Buckeyes in the NCAA Tournament.

      Kachmarik and his wife, Cori, have two children; Drew, 4, and daughter, Ava, 2.
