Tim Corbin

Vanderbilt Head Baseball Coach
Tim began his head coaching career at Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC in 1988 restarting a baseball program that had been dormant. From 1991-1993 the Blue Hose made three consecutive appearances in the South Atlantic playoffs, and in 1990 Corbin was named South Atlantic Coach of the Year. Tim moved on to Clemson University where he worked as an assistant coach for nine years (1994-2002). While Corbin was at Clemson only four programs won more games than the Tigers. During Tim’s tenure at Clemson, the Tigers won two ACC regular season titles, made 9 appearances in the NCAA Tournament and reached the College World Series four times. In 2003 Tim moved on to Vanderbilt University. Before he arrived at Vanderbilt, the Commodores had not earned a spot in the conference tournament in a decade. All that changed in 2004 as the Commodores returned to the SEC Tournament and since then the turn-around of the baseball program has been phenomenal. In 2005, 2011, and 2012 Baseball America labelled Vanderbilt’s recruiting classes the best in the nation. Vanderbilt is now not only a fixture in the SEC Tournament but also the NCAA Tournament. In 2011 the Commodore’s made their first ever appearance in The College World Series and in 2014 they returned to win the universities first College World Series Title and first ever men’s national championship in any sport.
