Caleb Kimbrough joined the Huntingdon coaching staff as the associate head men’s basketball coach in June 2016 and was promoted to head coach during the 2016-17 season.

Kimbrough guided the Hawks to a 62-61 win over Belhaven in his first game as head coach. In his first full season as head coach, the Hawks were 11-14 during the 2017-18 season and closed the year with a three-game winning streak.

Kimbrough’s first two teams produced one All-Conference performer and 14 Academic All-Conference selections.

Before Huntingdon, Kimbrough spent seven seasons as an assistant coach at the Division III level, including six seasons at Guilford College. Kimbrough joined the Quakers as an assistant coach in 2010 and was promoted to associate head coach in 2014.

During his six seasons, Guilford compiled a 103-55 record, qualified for the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Tournament every season and reached the conference semifinals in 2014-15.

Seven Quakers earned all-conference honors in those six seasons. During his time as Guilford’s recruiting coordinator, Kimbrough brought in two players who earned ODAC Rookie of the Year honors. He also helped develop 2015 ODAC Player of the Year and All-American Matt McCarthy.

Before Guilford, Kimbrough spent one season as an assistant coach at Washington and Lee University. Washington and Lee was 17-10 that season, marking its best record since 1989. 

A 2008 graduate of Guilford with a B.S. in exercise and sports science, Kimbrough was a two-sport athlete for the Quakers, earning honorable mention all-conference honors in basketball and all-conference honors in tennis.

In basketball, he started in a program-record 108 games during four seasons and ended his career as the Quakers’ third all-time leader in steals (130) and fourth all-time leader in assists (358). During his final two seasons, Guilford was 48-10, won one ODAC title and made two appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Before beginning his coaching career, Kimbrough spent one season playing against the Harlem Globetrotters as a member of the Washington Generals.
