Former RedHawk John Lackaff returns to the Miami Baseball program in 2013 as the team's volunteer assistant coach. He will work primarily with the hitters and outfielders and serve as the team's first-base coach. With the hiring, Lackaff rejoin for Miami and Kannapolis teammate Jeremy Ison on the staff.

A 15th-round selection of the Chicago White Sox in the 2000 Major League Draft, Lackaff spent seven years in professional baseball. Lackaff was named Chicago Area Minor League Player of the Year in 2001 and was a member of the 2003 Carolina League Champion Winston-Salem Warthogs. Lackaff ended his playing days in 2006 after three years with the Joliet Jackhammers of the independent Northern League.

For his professional career, Lackaff batted .264 with 30 home runs and 232 runs batted in. He set third-baseman fielding percentage records for the South Atlantic League in 2001 (.970) and the Northern League in 2004 (.970), and was selected a Northern League all-star in 2006.

As a collegian, Lackaff earned three letters from 1998-2000, earning first team all-conference honors as a junior. During his junior year, he set school records for runs batted in (67) and total bases (140), numbers that still rank second and tied for 10th entering this season. He was named to the All-MAC Tournament team after a runner-up finish in 1998 and named Tournament Most Valuable Player in 2000 helping the RedHawks to the title. Over his three seasons at Miami, Lackaff batted .315 with 41 doubles, two triples and 25 home runs. He drove in 128 runs and scored 137 times.

In addition, Lackaff spent his freshman year as a walk-on member of the Miami men's basketball team. He earned a bachelor's degree in Health & Sport Studies in 2003.

Lackaff and his wife, Carly, reside in Oxford and have two sons, Johnny (4) and Liam (1).  Carly is a former collegiate athlete herself, playing women's soccer at the University of Maryland.
