Nolan Neiman is currently the General Manager for Pride of the Diamond Operations.

Neiman also is serving in his second year as assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator at Millersville University. In his first season, he oversaw the Marauders' baserunning, which improved from 1.3 steals per game to 1.6 per game in 2012. The Marauders ranked third in the PSAC in steals. Neiman also oversaw the Marauder defense and two gold glove winners in shortstop Mike August and catcher Ryan Chesler.

Prior to his arrival at Millersville, he served two seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Maryland. Neiman’s responsibilities included coaching the catchers and hitters, coaching third base on game days and assisting with the day-to-day operations of the team. He joined the Terps after spending the 2009 season as the assistant coach at the Florida Gulf Coast University, where he helped guide the Eagles to a 36-18 overall record.

FGCU also won the Atlantic Sun regular season championship with a 23-7 conference mark. At FGCU Neiman saw a trio of Eagles join the first-team all Atlantic Sun, led by starting pitcher Chris Sale, the Chicago White Sox 1st round selection and the 15th pick overall in the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft, (7-4, 2.72 ERA, 104 K's in 89.1 innings), third baseman Tim Roberson (.345 average, 19 HR, 65 RBI) and designated hitter Zach Maxfield (.383 average, league-best 20 HR, 66 RBI).

Also under his tutelage, Neiman saw catcher Bobby Green throw out 56% of would-be base stealers throughout the year, good for tops in the A-Sun.

Prior to his stint at FGCU, Neiman spent two seasons (2007-08) as the top assistant and recruiting coordinator at DeSales University. In 2008 Neiman played a strong role in guiding the Bulldogs to a Freedom Conference Championship and saw two players named to the Mid Atlantic All-Region Team, eight to the all Freedom Conference Team and freshman Mike Newland named Freedom Conference Rookie of the Year.

In 2007, Neiman's first year in Center Valley, the Bulldogs had two players named to the Mid Atlantic All-Region Team, seven named to the all Freedom Conference Team, while freshman Doc Neiman was named Freedom Conference Rookie of the Year.

Before joining the Bulldogs, Neiman served as an assistant coach at the University of Pennsylvania. In addition, he served as the head coach for the New Market Rebels in the Valley League in 2008 and the Limeport Milkmen in 2007. Overall Neiman has seen 28 former players sign professional contracts.

Neiman attended DeSales University, where he was a three-year starter for the Bulldogs. He helped lead the Bulldogs to four consecutive Freedom Conference Championships, four NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournaments, helped capture the school's first-ever regional championship and was a member of the only team in school history to advance to the NCAA Division III College World Series in 2003.

At DeSales, Neiman earned all Freedom Conference honors three times, was named the Freedom Conference Player of the Year his junior year and earned American Baseball Coaches Association all Mid-Atlantic Regional honors three times.
