Tim Esmay is an American college baseball coach. He is the former head coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils baseball team. He was the head coach of the Arizona State Sun Devils baseball team from prior to the 2010 season until the end of the 2014 season, when he announced his resignation. Esmay is an Arizona State alumnus, and he played baseball there from 1986–1987. After graduating from Arizona State in 1987, Esmay served as an assistant at Arizona State, Grand Canyon, and Utah. He was Utah's head coach from 1997–2004, before he was hired as an assistant at Arizona State prior to the 2005 season.[1]

From 2005–2009, Esmay served as an assistant under Pat Murphy. Following the 2009 season, Murphy was forced to resign due to violations of NCAA rules regarding student-athlete employment and recruiting. Esmay was hired as an interim head coach for the 2010 season, after which he was named Arizona State's permanent head coach. As a result of Murphy's violations, an NCAA investigation led to sanctions of the program, including a ban from the postseason in 2012.[2][3][4]
