Local baseball coach resigns following arrest

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) According to school district spokeswoman, Eva Craner, Tim Stadelmeir resigned from his position as the head boys baseball coach at Twin Falls High School, stating personal reasons.

Court records show Stadelmeir was arrested for refusing to take a DUI test on February 24th. The Twin Falls Police officer tried to obtain a breath and blood test, but Stadelmeir refused. The officer needed a warrant from the judge to collect a blood sample and the results of Stadelmeir's blood test are pending. He bonded out before his arraignment hearing, so his pre-trial will be April 2 at 3 p.m.

Stadelmeir amassed eight conference coach of the year selections in 10 seasons. His teams won multiple state championships, most recently coming in 2017.

His resignation will go to the school board on April 8.

Meanwhile, Nolan Amundson is the interim head coach for the remainder of the season, according to Craner.
