When the Arlington High School Baseball team was suddenly left without a head coach, Coach Tyler Poole took the position as interim head coach.

Tyler Poole attended Arlington all 4 years of high school and was a starter on the baseball team. During his high school career here, he was part of the first team to make it to the Murfreesboro State Tournament. After graduation in 2008, he attended Mississippi State University to receive a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology in 2014, graduating with a 3.6 GPA. He stays involved with baseball by helping out with the MSU Baseball team throughout the summer. Following this, he went on to Arkansas State University to get his Master’s of Science in Sports Administration in 2016.

Although this is his first year as Head Coach of Arlington, he has had a lot of experience elsewhere. Poole started off at the Mississippi powerhouse, New Hope High School, where he was in charge of hitters, outfielders, base running and the weight room. He was also art of the staff that took the team to the 2014 5A State Championship that went 32-4. They finished this season nationally ranked at #20. He was the head coach at FACS from 2018-2020. Here, he led the team to a 20-8 overall record which set the single season record wins. He was also an assistant coach at perennial contender, Madison Central in Madison, MS. He focused on infielders, and assisted with hitting, base running, and strength and conditioning. Before the 2020 season was cut short, Madison Central went 8-1 with 8 Division 1 signees.

Tyler Poole took the position as Assistant Coach and Head Coach of the Junior Varsity team in 2021. He worked hard with the younger group to develop them to move on to the varsity level. During the off season of the 2022-2023 season, Arlington was left without a head coach. Coach Pool was selected tote the Interim Head Coach or the coming season. He quickly adjusted his schedule and devoted his time to the boys on the team. However, this transition was no easy for him. “My passion for baseball is what drives me to keep pushing myself and the boys.” Along with being a head coach, he is a personal finance teacher. At home, he has his wife, Brittany, his 7 year old son, Paxton, and his 2 year daughter, Kolbi Kellen. Although he has a lot going on, he does his best to evenly disperse his attention to all areas of his life.
