Coach Kaine Discusses Recent Marriage, Impending Fatherhood

Tim Kaine was added to the FAU men's basketball staff before the 2008-09 season after helping Winthrop University, his alma mater, win its fourth-straight Big South Conference Championship in 2008. Serving as Winthrop's director of basketball operations in 2007-08, Kaine was able to build on previous coaching experience gained from stops at Austin Peay State University, Newberry College, Guilford College and Northwestern High School. While completing his bachelor's degree in Sport Management at Winthrop in 2002, Kaine was the head ninth grade coach at Northwestern High School. One year later, as a graduate assistant coach at Austin Peay, Kaine obtained a master's degree in Sports Administration and contributed to the Governors' 2003 Ohio Valley Conference Championship and appearance in the 2003 NCAA Tournament. Following his year at Austin Peay, Kaine became the top assistant coach at Guilford College in North Carolina. He helped lead the Quakers to its best record in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference since joining the league. In addition, Kaine was instrumental in landing the 2006-2007 Division III National Player of the Year, Ben Strong.

After one season with the Quakers, Kaine joined former Winthrop assistant coach Shaun Golden at Newberry College in South Carolina. Kaine directed all scouting and recruiting efforts for the Indians from 2004-2007. While at Newberry, Kaine brought in several recruits that went on to earn all-conference honors. Kaine served as head coach at Newberry for one game during the 2006-2007 season, defeating conference rival Mars Hill.

Kaine played soccer at Winthrop four years after transferring from Tennessee-Martin where he also played basketball for one season. As a high school soccer player, he was selected to the NSCAA All-American team and was voted the Tennessee Player of the Year in 1997. While attending Winthrop, Kaine was a recipient of Big South Conference Presidential Scholar recognition in both 2001 and 2002.

Coach Kaine has been instrumental in the recruiting of several student-athletes since coming to FAU. He is responsible for coaching the Owls' post players, including two-time Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year Brett Royster and Jordan McCoy, who won the team's Most Improved Award as a sophomore. Coach Kaine duties focus on opponent scouting, coaching the FAU post players and tracking in-game trends. He also helps coordinate the Owls' various summer camps.

Kaine is the godson of Duke University head men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski. He is married to Jenny Ashworth Kaine and the couple have a daughter.
