Tim Corbin is the head baseball coach of the Vanderbilt Commodores baseball team.

In his nine years at Vanderbilt, Corbin has taken the Commodores from the perennial Southeastern Conference doormat to (at one point) the number one ranked team in the country. In his first five years, Corbin amassed a 198-108 record with the Commodores. Before coming to Vanderbilt, Corbin served as an assistant coach at Clemson University for nine years, where he coached ACC player of the year T. Groves, and as head coach at Presbyterian College for six years. At Presbyterian, Corbin help direct a program that was dormant for several years. He compiled a 106-138 record with the Blue Hose, which was transitioning from NAIA to NCAA Division II. The Blue Hose made three consecutive appearances in the South Atlantic playoffs (1991–93), and Corbin earned South Atlantic Coach of the Year honors in 1990.

Corbin also served as manager for the USA Baseball National Team in the summer 2006. He led the team to a 28-2-1 record that culminated with a gold medal finish at the FISU (International University Sports Federation) World University Championship in Havana, Cuba. The .919 winning percentage was the highest ever for a national team and it garnered special recognition by the United States Olympic Committee in September. Additionally, Corbin managed three of his Commodore players on this team: David Price, Pedro Alvarez, and Casey Weathers.

Since arriving at Vanderbilt, Corbin has shown remarkable loyalty to the school, rejecting coaching offers from the New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox, Auburn, LSU, and most recently the University of Oregon, who hoped he might be the right fit to resurrect their baseball program, dormant since the 1981 season.
