Cornell has turned to an alumnus to replace Tom Ford as head coach. The Big Red hired Bill Walkenbach, who played for Cornell in the mid-1990s and served as an assistant under Ford from 2003-05. He’s spent the last three years as the head coach at Division III Franklin & Marshall (Pa.). Now he returns to his alma mater, where Ford will serve as his assistant. In late July, Ford stepped down from the head coaching job after 18 years and became the associate head coach.
“I appreciate the confidence that (director of athletics) Andy Noel and Coach Ford have shown in me by asking me to take over this program,” Walkenbach said. “I look forward to working with Coach Ford and the entire team as we begin this next chapter of Cornell baseball.”
