Tim Walsh enters his fifth season at the helm of the Coppin State volleyball program in 2021 and is the winningest coach in Eagles’ history. In just four seasons at Coppin, Walsh, the 2020 MEAC Coach of the Year, has won 40 matches while guiding four MEAC major award winners, nine All-Conference selections and the program’s first AVCA All-Region recipient.
This past season, one of the most challenging in NCAA history due to CoVID-19, Walsh led the Eagles to its first-ever winning season and Northern Division Championship due to a program-record ten-match winning streak and nine conference victories.
In 2019 Walsh was named to VolleyballMag.com's Top 40 Coaches Under 40.
Walsh came to Coppin State after spending the 2015 and 2016 seasons at Marywood University as its head coach. He guided the Pacers to a 25-36 combined record and a 15-7 conference record in two years, including the program’s 400th all-time victory in 2015. Both of his teams reached the CSAC Playoffs and were named an American Volleyball Coaches’ Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award recipient. The 2016 squad, which saw two players earn All-Conference recognition, collected 17 wins which were the most for Marywood’s program since the 2013 season.
Prior to Marywood, Walsh served as the Head Coach at Francis Scott Key High School in Union Bridge, MD for six seasons. He led the Eagles to the 2A Maryland State Championship in 2009.
