Nick Wagner enters his fifth season as an assistant coach with the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps baseball team in the 2023-24 academic year, where he serves as a pitching coach. He has been a part of the two winningest seasons for the CMS program this century (24 wins in 2022, 28 wins in 2023), as well as an 18-6 SCIAC season in 2023, setting a new program standard for most league wins. 

Wagner came to CMS after most recently serving as the head coach at Polytechnic High School, which he led to a runner-up finish in the CIF Division 5 tournament. A year prior in 2018, he was an assistant coach with a Polytechnic team that won the CIF title, while concluding his third year as a professional player in the Independent League. 

Before working for Polytechnic, Wagner had two years of collegiate coaching experience at California Miramar University in San Diego, while simultaneously playing professionally. He helped Cal Miramar to the 2017 NCBA Division 2 West Region title in his second year with the Fighting Falcons. 

Wagner was a collegiate baseball player for four years, playing two years at Cal Poly Pomona in 2012 and 2013, before transferring to Holy Names University in Oakland in 2014 and 2015, where he started 81 of 87 games over two years. He was an NCAA Division II Athletic Directors Association Academic Achievement Award winner as a senior. 

Originally from Glendora, California, Wagner was a player on the 2010 Glendora High School CIF Championship team and earned All-Sierra League Honorable Mention honors. He was also a two-time Sierra League All-Academic honoree.
