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, 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.

    Everything that I have been reading on Boneyard about Schnabel sounds great. Wish I had seen him play back in the day! Waiting for Big Erv to comment on something. He has been pulling a disappearing act on the board lately…

    Sorry Big Fella, been on the wedding circus lately. I feel great about this hire. I remember him mostly from our coaching staff in the 2004 super regionals in Columbia. I went to this series and we lost a tough one on a blazing summer Sunday, if you guys remember it was when Mazey brought in Trevor Lawhorn to pitch in the 9th. It was a questionable move by Mazey to say the least, but I believe they were a better team that year and Tanner and Co. deserved the trip to Omaha. Not to take any limelight away from Schnabel, but wasn’t Cliff Godwin in the running for this coaching spot as well?
