Timothy Edward Walsh (born December 16, 1954) is a college football coach, currently the head coach of the Cal Poly Mustangs. He was previously the offensive coordinator for the Army Black Knights, and the head coach at Portland State and Sonoma State.[1]

Early life and education[edit]

Walsh graduated from Junípero Serra High School in San Mateo, California in 1973 and the University of California, Riverside in 1977.[2][3] At UC Riverside, Walsh was a backup quarterback with the Highlanders and majored in history.[3]

Coaching career[edit]

From 1977 to 1980, Walsh was an assistant coach at his alma mater Serra High School. He then was head coach at Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, California from 1981 to 1985.[3] In 1986, Walsh moved up to the college level as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Santa Clara.[4] After two seasons as offensive coordinator, Walsh became head coach at Sonoma State in 1989.[3]

Walsh was the head coach at Portland State from 1993 through 2006, succeeding Pokey Allen, who left for Boise State (after defeating the Broncos soundly in Boise in 1992). In his 14 years at Portland State, Walsh compiled a 90-68 record and guided the Vikings from a Division II program to a Division I-AA contender. Walsh's tenure at Portland State was the longest of any previous Portland State football head coach.[1] The Vikings made the Division II playoffs in 1993, 1994, and 1995, and the I-AA playoffs in 2000.[5]

On February 16, 2007, Walsh left Portland State to become offensive coordinator and quartebacks coach at Army under Stan Brock.[6] Army went 3–9 in Walsh's two seasons, 2007 and 2008.[7]

Walsh became a head coach again on January 9, 2009, when Cal Poly hired him.[3]
