CHAD WALTHALL

8TH SEASON

Record at MSUM: 171-77

In just seven seasons as head coach of the Minnesota State University Moorhead men’s basketball program, Chad Walthall has continued to enhance his reputation as a builder of programs. He has the Dragons recognized as one of the premiere programs in the country, and is continuing to garner national attention. The height of MSUM’s national attention came at the CollegeInsider.com Awards Banquet in April 2015, where Walthall was awarded with the Clarence “Big House” Gaines National Coach of the Year Award. The honor is given annually to the top Division II coach in the country. In addition, Walthall was also recognized as Central Region Coach of the Year and as the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Coach of the Year. Posting a 89-16 record in the past three seasons, including a 58-8 record in conference play, MSUM is poised to continue its success in the future under Walthall. The Dragons’ seven-year run under Walthall has seen MSUM produce a 165-57 record, the most wins in any seven-year period in school history. In the five years before Walthall was hired, the Dragons earned a record of 63-74. Under Coach Walthall, the Dragons are an outstanding 111-43 in NSIC play. MSUM has reached 20 wins five times during Walthall’s tenure, including earning 30 or more wins in back-to-back seasons (2014-16). Before Walthall’s arrival, the last 20-win season at MSUM was 1981-82. In Walthall’s 14 seasons as a head coach, he has remarkably led every team to a winning season in conference play. In 2016-17, an experienced group of upperclassmen posted a 24-6 record, winning the NSIC Regular Season Championship for the second time in the last three years, and the NSIC North Division title for the fourth consecutive season. MSUM made its third consecutive NCAA Tournament, marking four out of six years under the direction of Walthall. For the second consecutive season, the Dragons posted a 19-3 mark in NSIC play.
