Owls set to introduce new coach

May 12, 1994|By Glenn P. Graham | Glenn P. Graham,Sun Staff Writer

The Carroll County Board of Education approved Westminster High School's selection of Timothy Ebersole as its new head football coach.

The approval was made at the board's monthly meeting yesterday morning in Westminster.

Westminster High will officially make the announcement at a press conference at the school today at 1:30 p.m., and Westminster athletic director Steve Thomson said Ebersole will visit Westminster on Monday.

Ebersole, who will replace former Owls coach Jeff Oeming, did not want to comment on his new coaching position until today's press conference. He did say he would be teaching business math at the school as well as coaching.

Ebersole, a 1983 Shippensburg (Pa.) University grad, has been an assistant football coach at Lebanon Valley College the past eight years.

The last three seasons he was the offensive coordinator and helped guide the team to a 18-12 mark during the span.

He's also been the head baseball coach at Lebanon Valley the past three seasons and guided the team to its first 20-win season last spring.

"Tim has been an assistant head football coach for us for a while and did a good job for us," said Lebanon Valley athletic director Lou Sorrentino.

"We hate to see him go, but knew it was a situation where he wanted to be a head football coach. Tim's a young, vigorous-type person and he'll be an asset to the Westminster program."

Ebersole set a number of passing records during his playing days as quarterback at Shippensburg.

Thomson said there were 26 applicants to the position with the Westminster High administration interviewing nine of them before selecting Ebersole.

Oeming guided the Owls for the past six seasons before stepping down after the 1993 campaign.

Westminster is the only 4A school of the five public schools in Carroll County and competes in the Central Maryland Conference.
