Former Central Michigan standout Will Arnold joined the staff as an undergraduate student assistant during the 2013 season and upon graduation was named the volunteer assistant. He will work with catchers and assist with hitters in his 4th year as a coach at CMU. During Arnold's time here he has helped six All-MAC and one All-Region players, along with one draft pick (Pat MacKenzie).
A Mount Pleasant native, Arnold was named Co-Mr. Baseball by the Michigan High School Coaches Association in 2008 following a star senior season for Mount Pleasant High School. Over his final two seasons as a Chippewa he started 112 games and earned a spot on the All-MAC team in 2012 after leading the Chippewas in RBI, walks, putouts and fielding percentage. He led a pitching staff from behind the plate that had seven players drafted in those two years.
After his college career, Arnold played for the Washington Wildthings and the Road Warriors of the Frontier League in 2013. In 2014 he played for the Taos Blizzard of the Pecos League, before leaving to coach the USA Baseball's Tournament of Stars, which selects the best 18U players in the country to represent the USA in international games.
Arnold has also been the Head Coach of the CM Stars, a local 18u baseball team the last two years. He has led them to the Palomino World Series in California the past two years, to continue their streak of five straight appearances.
