Shane Dudoit ‘relieved of duties’ as Baldwin baseball coach

Shane Dudoit told The Maui News today that he has been relieved of his duties as head baseball coach at Baldwin High School after a meeting with the school’s administration.

Dudoit led the Bears to three Maui Interscholastic League pennants, a state title in 2018 and a state final four appearance in 2019 in his three seasons at the Baldwin helm.

He is a five-time MIL Coach of the Year and has coached in five state finals as a head coach at St. Anthony and assistant and head coach at Baldwin. Besides the state title he guided the Bears to, he was the head assistant to Jon Viela in 2016 for the state champions.

“I was relieved by the administration at Baldwin,” Dudoit said in a phone interview. “You know, how do you say it? It’s not fun to be told that you’re no longer needed as a head coach, but I also do understand that there is a chain of command and it is the administration’s decision to seek out a new head coach for the Baldwin baseball program.”

This story will be updated in Tuesday’s edition of The Maui News.
