Noah Sanders Bio

Release: 12/07/2012

Noah Sanders is in his second season as an assistant coach for Arkansas State after serving as a volunteer assistant the previous three seasons.

The first year as a full-time assistant coach went well for Sanders who helped head coach Tommy Raffo lead the offense to a school-record 22 triples, breaking the 1949 record of 20, and 303 RBI, which were the second most in the Raffo era and eighth most in school history. The squad hit 33 home runs for the second most during Raffo's tenure and had a .387 slugging percentage, good for third highest under Raffo, during the 2016 campaign.

Tanner Ring was named First-Team All-Sun Belt Conference after hitting .304 with a team-best 16 doubles, eight home runs, 46 RBI, 114 total bases, and .496 slugging percentage.

The A-State catchers threw out 20 runners attempting to steal during the year for a 30% caught stealing rate. The three catchers also accounted for just nine errors during the season.

Part-time catcher Joe Schrimpf also earned Second-Team All-Sun Belt Conference honors as an utility player. Schrimpf threw out five runners attempting to steal and didn't commit an error in his time behind the plate.

Sanders has worked with the catchers and outfielders since arriving A-State and has handled first-base coaching duties during that time frame.  He was instrumental in the development of backstop Stuart Levy, who was drafted in the 27th round by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2015 MLB draft.  He was also responsible for aligning the defense during games and assisted in the offensive game plan.

In 2015, A-State's outfielders made just 12 errors and Levy threw out 19 runners trying to steal, which was the fourth most in the conference.  After his increased role in the offense, the Red Wolves rallied to win seven of their final nine league games and won two games in the SBC Tournament for the sixth straight season. Additionally, Zach George was named First-Team All-Conference and Third-Team All-American by two different publications after hitting .399 with the nation's best on-base percentage of .548.

In 2014 his outfielders committed just nine errors which was the second fewest among all outfielders in the Sun Belt Conference.  He also helped Stuart Levy throw out 19 would-be base stealers during the year, the third most in the league in 2014.

Sanders came to A-State after serving as an assistant coach at Crowder College in 2012 where he was the team’s hitting instructor, worked with the catchers and assisted in recruiting.

Before Crowder, Sanders had a two-year stint as an assistant coach at Arkansas-Monticello and helped six players reach all-conference status during his time with the team.

As a coach at UAM, Sanders was the team's recruiting coordinator, worked with hitters, catchers, and outfielders.

As a player, Sanders spent two years at Itawamba Community College before transferring to the University of West Alabama for two seasons. He spent the final year of his playing career at Arkansas-Monticello.

Sanders earned a bachelor’s degree in general studies from Arkansas-Monticello. He is married to the former Bailie Jedlicka of League City, Texas.
