Walker steps down as men's basketball coach at LCSC
Tim Walker has resigned as men’s basketball coach at Lewis-Clark State College after six seasons at the helm, Warrior athletic director Gary Picone announced on Thursday.
Walker took over the program from George Pfeifer in May of 2005. He had served as an assistant coach to Pfeifer at LCSC for the four previous seasons.
“We’d like to thank Tim for his service and effort over the past six years,” Picone said. “Tim is a solid individual and one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. We wish him well in all his future endeavors.”
Picone said the college will begin a national search immediately and hopes to have the new coach in by mid-April.
Walker posted 44-40 record in Frontier Conference play, with an overall record of 102-74 at LCSC. For the last three seasons his record was 16-26 in conference play and 41-41 overall. In Walker’s two most successful seasons he led the Warriors to the conference regular-season and tournament title in 2006-07 and the following season LCSC tied for the regular season conference title. In both of those seasons, LCSC qualified for the NAIA national tournament and lost in the opening round.
Walker grew up in Montana and played basketball at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, and graduated in 1990. He coached basketball and football at Columbus High in Montana in 1991-93 and then became an assistant coach at Montana State-Northern for three years. He was head coach at MSU-Northern from 1997 to 2001.
