Timothy O'Brien is in his third season as the head volleyball coach at Wilmington College. He will be in his second season as the Assistant Director of Athletic Communications, serving as the primary contact for men's and women's lacrosse.
O’Brien comes from Adrian College, where he served as an assistant coach for the Bulldogs. In addition, O’Brien has proven experience with rebuilding programs.
“It’s a mindset,” he said. “You have to understand (rebuilding) is a process, it’s not going to happen overnight. We have to recruit and we need to get the current players on the same page with our plan.”
It will be his first women’s college volleyball head coaching position, but he brings head coaching experience to the table. He served as the men’s head coach at Alderson Broaddus University in 2014, and had two high school head coaching stints (Clinton, MI High School, 2013 and Britton-Deerfield High School, 2011).
He was also a graduate assistant at Siena Heights University.
A 2012 graduate from Siena Heights, O’Brien is familiar with southern Ohio as he is a 2008 graduate of Dayton Carroll.
