Daily Sports Editor
Two new assistant coaches
were named to the Michigan
baseball program staff after much
speculation about who new head
coach Erik Bakich would retain
from his staff at Maryland.
On Thursday, Sean Kenny and
Nick Schnabel were hired as assis-
tants to Bakich, where Kenny will
serve as the pitching coach and
Schnabel will be the recruiting
coordinator.
Kenny is an Ann Arbor native,
having graduated from Pioneer
High School. He was at Maryland
with Bakich for three years as the
pitching coach. The Terrapins had
the third-best ERA in the Atlantic
Coast Conference in 2012-and set'
the program records for strikeouts
(464) in 2010. Kenny also helped
on the recruiting side, bringing in
Maryland's first top-25 recruiting
class in 2010. He also developed
two future MLB draft picks in his
time with the Terrapins.

Kenny has served as a recruit-
ing coordinator and pitching
coach at numerous other univer-
sities, and played baseball both
at the collegiate and professional
level, with Eastern Michigan Uni-
versity and the New York Mets,
respectively..
Schnabel comes to Michigan
after spending three years at East
Carolina as the hitting coach and
recruiting coordinator. He had
much success recruiting, garner-
ing nationally ranked recruiting
classes in addition to developing
talent to send to the next level.
Schnabel played ball with
Bakich at East Carolina, where
Schnabel was named Defensive
.Player of the Year in 1999 by the
Colonial Athletic Association.
"Sean and Nick are among the
best in the nation at what they
do," Bakich said in a statement
released by the athletic 'depart-
ment. "We are fortunate to have
them join our staff and help lead
Michigan baseball back to a cham-
pionship level."

"They got a new CEO in Janu-

aggressively to improve their
website, and before then, their

ous about acquiring us," Masters
said. "So this was the first time
that there was what we thought

Masters added that The
Weather Channel's larger fol-
lowing will allow the Weather
Underground LLC site to get new
traffic as well.
"They have three times the
traffic we do, so a lot of people
who haven't heard of us are going
to check us out and start using us,
and to some degree there will be
cross-linking between the two,"
Master said.
Masters said in addition to The
Weather Channel's video prow-
ess, the partnership will allow the
possibility of utilizing their large
Twitter following.
"Certainly we could use their
density of Twitter people that
send weather information via
Twitter to do some cool projects
where you could check out in real
time when there's a major weath-
er activity happening and sort of
look at the Twitter activity going
on," Masters said.

moving IHPI researchers into
the NCRC will allow a world of
collaboration among the sciences
that will benefit health care
research.
"When we bring those kinds
of investigative teams together
in a common place and create
opportunities for education
... sometimes great things can
happen," Eagle said. "Certainly for
training programs, having groups
of investigators in a common place
creates opportunities for cross
fertilization."
Eagle said the center offers an
unprecedented opportunity for
the University.
"This moment really creates
a new opportunity for us to do
something quite wonderful,"
Eagle said. "Measure quality
better, maximize safety (and)
improve the ability to inform
patients and families about the
best care."
Eagle said the institute plans
to bring great minds together to
make lasting changes.
"I feel very optimistic that
these new bridges in health care
research are going to be fostered
by this new institute," Eagle
said. "U of M wants to be an
international university, wants
to be considered as a place that is
helping with thoughts on how we
organize and deliver healthcare.
This institute has potential to take

that to a new level in a critical
moment in our nation's healthcare
history."
Eagle said the center will
work with other organizations to
improve health care around Mich-
igan.
"It's entirely likely that the
University will be proactive with
working with other institutions in
the state as a voice to try to help
maximize the provision of preven-
tive health and health care deliv-
ery throughout the state," Eagle
said.
Last week, the first 80 IHPI
researchers and staff were moved
to the new building, and in the
upcoming months, the more
than 400 more who are on their
way will make this "the largest
university-based health services
research institute in the country,"
by the end of the summer, accord-
ing to Dr. Rodney Hayward, pro-
fessor of internal medicine, health
management and policy and chair
of the interim leadership team of
the IHPI.
"Some of our work will be
unchanged," Hayward said.
"There's alot ofgreat work already
coming, but the greatest changes
in the work are people working
across these disciplines, not just
to bring together different parts of
the university, but to bring togeth-
er partnerships nationally and in
region and state."
