The college baseball season has been over for awhile now, but honors continue to pour in for Michigan following its College World Series run this spring.
On Wednesday, Michigan assistant coach Nick Schnabel was named the National Assistant Coach of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association. He is the team’s hitting and infield coach.
Schnabel is also the team’s recruiting coordinator.
The 2019 campaign marked Schnabel’s seventh season in Ann Arbor, helping the Wolverines engineer a College World Series run, the first B1G team to make it in 50 years.

Schnabel’s honor is the latest for the Wolverines. Head coach Erik Bakich was also named the Coach of the Year after leading Michigan to a 50-22 record and one win away from national championship.
Michigan won the Corvallis Regional and defeated No. 1 UCLA in the Super Regional. The Wolverines then won their first three games of the College World Series to advance to the championship round.
The Wolverines defeated Vanderbilt in Game 1, but dropped Game 2 and Game 3 to the Commodores.
