According to Pirate Radio 1250 via Twitter, Nick Schnabel has been added as the newest member of the ECU Baseball coaching staff. He will take the place of Link Jarrett who left ECU to take the Director of Player Development at Auburn. Over the past 2 years Schnabel has served as the Assistant Coach at Liberty.
According to www.ecupirates.com, Schnabel was a 2000 graduate of East Carolina, where he lettered twice as the Pirates’ starting second baseman. In his two seasons at East Carolina, he helped the Pirates win two consecutive league championships and secure a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Regionals both of those seasons. In 1999, Schnabel garnered first-team Colonial Athletic Association honors and was selected the CAA’s Defensive Player of the Year. He began his collegiate career at Ohlone College in Freemont, Calif., where he was a first-team all-conference performer and preseason Junior College All-American.
I hope I speak for many in Pirate Nation by saying we are happy to have him back.
We will continue to keep you up to date throughout the day with more information regarding this new addition to the ECU Baseball coaching staff.
