There may not be an active college baseball coach as good or as well respected as Tim Corbin. Vanderbilt’s head coach has claimed two national championships, four SEC titles and won multiple national coach of the year honors during his time in Nashville leading one of the best programs in the entire league. In his 17 seasons at the helm, he has transformed the Commodores into a national power. The Commodores would likely be in the midst of another run at the SEC title and College World Series if not for the NCAA’s need to cancel the baseball season following the coronavirus pandemic across the nation.
The reason for Corbin's continued success? It is the culture he has created. He is very much a coach that coaches the person first and the player second. Just ask Vanderbilt alum and Major League Baseball Cy Young winner David Price, who says of Corbin, "He turned me into a man. Just watching how he treated everybody like they were the most special person in the world...times change, but Coach Corbin doesn't." Wow. Pretty high praise coming from the former number one overall pick. As you listen to this interview with Coach Corbin, you are sure to pick up a ton of great information you can implement in your program to begin enhancing your culture right away!
