Marcus Pointer was a three -year letter winner at Junipero Serra HS in San Mateo, graduating in 2007. Later, he attended Skyline Junior College and continued his achievements by winning 21 games in two seasons while achieving 1st team all-conference unanimous pitcher-of-the Year in 2009, and first-team All American at the Junior College ranks. Pointer then went on to play at the University of Pacific for two seasons. After playing for one year in the independent Pecos League he got into coaching.
Pointer has coached two seasons with the Anchorage Glacier Pilots in the Alaska Baseball League. In 2017, Pointer performed as an assistant coach at Canada Junior College, and in the summer, was the pitching coach of the Orange County Riptide and helped win a Championship. He also instructed several all-league pitchers and top prospects. Pointer currently coaches at Canada Junior College in Redwood City, California.

Chris Miguel has come on as a hitting coach for Duluth. The Daly City, California native says he first got into the coaching ranks right after his playing days. “I went back to coach at the high school I attended in San Francisco-Sacred Heart Cathedral,” Miguel said. “Once I started there, more doors and opportunities opened up for me, and I’m thankful for all of it.” Along with the Huskies, Coach Miguel is currently an assistant coach at Cañada College in Redwood City, California. This is where he got to know Huskies Head Coach Marcus Pointer. Miguel also coaches at a baseball training school for a team called the San Francisco Crabs.
Peterson will join the Huskies organization for the second time in three years. In 2019, Peterson was one of the Scouting Analytics Coaching Hybrid (SACH) interns for the team and was dubbed as one of Head Coach Marcus Pointer’s right-hand guys. When asked how he navigated 2020 with little to no baseball, Will said it was tough, but he said he made the most of it. “Being away from the guys after working hard for months wasn’t fun,” he said. “I spent time learning and growing as a coach, taking the down time we normally don’t see in our sport and put it to good use.”
