Tim Buckley (born September 10, 1963) is a current associate head coach at Indiana University.[1] He was hired in April 2008 by new Indiana head coach Tom Crean, who brought him and fellow assistant Bennie Seltzer over from his staff at Marquette.

Buckley was the former head coach at Ball State University from 2000-2006. He is best known for leading the Cardinals to upset wins over #3 Kansas and UCLA during the 2001 Maui Invitational. Buckley was an assistant coach at the University of Iowa under Steve Alford, who left the Hawkeyes to take the head coaching job at the New Mexico Lobos. More recently he was an assistant coach at Marquette University where he is reunited with former Ball State player and 2006 MAC Freshman of the Year Maurice Acker, who transferred after Buckley was fired.

Buckley has also served as an assistant coach at Bemidji State (1986–88), Rockford College (1988–89, head coach 1989-93), Wisconsin (1993–94), Ball State (1994–99), Marquette (1999–2000), Iowa (2006–07), and back to Marquette (2007–08).

Personal life[edit]

Tim graduated from Aurora Central Catholic High School (Aurora, Illinois) in 1981 and went on to play two seasons at Waubonsee Community College before transferring to Bemidji State. He graduated with a B.S. in Communications from the latter in 1986, and also received an M.S. in Admin. of Physical Education in 1988. He is married to Shannon and has one daughter, Meredith.
