Tim Heath joined the Fayetteville State staff as wide receivers coach in 2004. As he enters his seventh year with the Broncos, Heath now is in charge of running backs and brings with him over 30 years worth of coaching knowledge and leadership.
Under the guidance of Heath, former Broncos' wide receiver Darryl Barnett was named to the 2008 All-CIAA team. Barnett led the conference in receiving touchdowns (12) and ranked sixth in receptions(33).
Heath was born in Winston-Salem, N.C. before moving to Ft. Bragg, N.C. with his family. At an early age he developed a love for athletics while participating and excelling in football, basketball and baseball.
He went on to star at Irwin Middle school and later at Seventy-First High School, in Fayetteville, N.C., where he carried his team to the 1970 high school state 3-A championship.
Heath's play with the Falcons earned him a scholarship at FSU.
During his time with the Broncos, Heath earned All-NAIA honors and was instrumental in the most successful period of FSU history prior to current Head Coach Kenny Phillips' arrival.
In 2002, Heath was inducted into the FSU Athletic Hall of Fame.
Heath began his teaching and coaching career after graduating from FSU in 1976. After over 20 years of service in the public school system, Heath returned to FSU in 2001 to become the Director of Intramural sports.
Heath is married to Eva Patterson-Heath, who is the head coach of the FSU Women's basketball team. They have three daughters, one son and four grandchildren.
