is without a doubt one the greatest men’s basketball
coaches in Rhode Island College and Little East Conference history.
Walsh led Rhode Island College for nine seasons
(2005-14), compiling a record of 204-63. His .764 winning percentage
is the highest in program history and he ranks second all-time in
career victories. Walsh led RIC to Little East Conference Regular
Season Championships five times (2013, ’11, 10, ’09, ’07) and to six
Little East Conference Tournament Championships (2014, ’13, ’11,
’10, ’08, ’07).
Under his tutelage, RIC qualified for the NCAA Div.
III Men’s Basketball Tournament in eight seasons from 2007-14, one
of only five institutions in the nation that can claim that feat.
The Anchormen reached the NCAA Elite Eight in 2007 and the Sweet 16
twice (2011, ’10).
Walsh is currently the head men’s basketball coach at
the University of Maine. Prior to coming to RIC, Walsh spent seven
seasons as an assistant coach at Providence College. He is a 1994
graduate of Hamilton College, earning a bachelor’s degree in
sociology. Walsh procured a master’s degree in mass communications
and public relations from Iona in 1996.
