Tim Zundel enters his fifth season as head coach of the Duquesne women's soccer program. After serving as the Dukes' assistant coach for four seasons, Tim Zundel was named head coach of at the beginning of the 2007 season.

In his first season Zundel rewrote the DU record books with 11 overall wins and eight Atlantic 10 victories. Additionally, the Dukes set a program record four consecutive shutouts from Oct. 14 to Oct. 24 and tied the 1996 and 1998 squads with eight shutouts.

Picked to finish 12th of 14 teams in the Atlantic 10 Conference, Zundel led the Dukes to a berth in the A-10 Championship for only the second time in program history with their highest-ever conference finish, tying for second place.

Injuries once again took its toll on the Dukes in 2009, as a young team comprised of 15 underclassmen finished 7-11-0.

In Zundel's second season, he became the first coach in program history to lead Duquesne to back-to-back A-10 Championship appearances. He took an injury-riddled team and guided them to a 7-7-4 overall record and a 5-4-2 conference mark.

While serving as an assistant at Duquesne for four seasons, Zundel helped recruit freshmen classes in 2006 and 2007 that were rated in the top 20 by Soccer Buzz Magazine in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Included in his recruiting classes have been Audra Mathews, a four-time All-Atlantic 10 Conference Second Team pick; three-time A-10 honoree Emily Sedgwick, 2006 A-10 honorable mention Ginny Bondi. Mathews, along with Faye Rasmussen were on the A-10 Rookie team in 2004, Shannon Rengers was on the A-10 All-Rookie team in 2006 and Samantha Kaiser was named to the A-10 All-Rookie team in 2007.

Zundel began his coaching career at Sylvania (Ohio) Northview High School in 2000. During his three-year tenure, he saw his teams win three consecutive Northern Lake League championships while advancing to the district regional finals each year. The three-time NLL Coach of the Year had his Wildcats ranked in the top 10 in the state during the 2001 and 2002 seasons.

He also served as an assistant coach for Ohio North, an Olympic Development Program, during the 2002 and 2003 seasons leading the `87 and `86 boy's teams. Additionally, he was a staff coach for Pacesetter Soccer Club from 2000 to 2002.

Zundel graduated with a degree in criminal justice from Tiffin University in 2000. During his time at Tiffin, he was a four year letter winner for the Dragons. Tiffin was ranked No. 11 nationally his senior season. Zundel played at the club level for the Sereno Golden Eagles in Phoenix, Arizona and for the Mentor Impact in Mentor, Ohio.

The Madison, Ohio native is the fourth head coach of the Duquesne women's soccer program, which began competing at the Division I level in 1995.
