Bill Eddins currently serves as the Head Women’s Golf Coach and Assistant Athletic Director of Club and Recreation Sport and the head women’s golf coach at Malone University. As golf coach, the competitiveness of the program is attracting the best talent it ever has and the team is chasing history to become the 1st Malone women’s team to earn a bid to the NCAA tournament. Off the course, the program is equally successful in the classroom and within the community. Community service is an integral part of the program.

He served as Louisville High School’s head boys’ basketball coach from 1993-2001 collecting Division II Ohio Boys’ Basketball Coach of the Year honors after leading the Leopards to the school’s only undefeated regular season in school history. He currently serves as an assistant varsity boys’ coach at West Branch High School.
