Walker named Head Coach at Catawba College

Western Carolina's Defensive Coordinator Curtis Walker has been named the new head coach of his alma mater, Catawba College.

Walker, a former All-American football player for the Catawba Indians, is not only returning to his alma mater, he is also re-joining the Indians' football staff that he served under then head coach David Bennett.  

"Curtis helped us lay a solid foundation for our future and we're going to miss him." said WCU head coach Mark Speir. "We greatly appreciate all of Curtis Walker's efforts during his time on our coaching staff and what he meant to our program with his leadership in our football program here at Western Carolina University,"

Walker was a three-time All-American linebacker for Catawba in 1989-92. He was inducted into the Catawba Sports Hall of Fame in 2004 and South Atlantic Conference Hall of Fame in 2008.  Walker still holds the Indian's single game record for tackles, 25 stops against Wofford in 1991, and the all-time single season record for fumble recoveries set in 1991.

We wish the best of luck to Coach Walker in his new job at Catawba.
