Newell enters his second season with the Cavaliers staff, but is no stranger to the program and its rich history. He brings with him a wealth of nearly 50 years of coaching experience.
Newell came to Walsh after spending four seasons with Baldwin Wallace under Head Coach John Snell. There he helped the Yellow Jackets to a second place finish in the OAC in 2015 and a pair of third place finishes the previous two seasons.
He also is a former assistant under longtime Walsh head coach Jim Dennison while at the University of Akron from 1975 to 1985. During that time the Zips recorded a record of 70-49-2, were the NCAA Division II runner-up in 1976, and qualified for the 1985 Division I-AA playoffs.
