Tim Wunderlich joined the Big Green track staff in the fall of 2014 and began working with individuals in multis and jumps events.

In his first year in 2014-15, Wunderlich helped Dartmouth's Kaitlin Whitehorn to the high jump titles during both the indoor and outdoor Heps meets. In the outdoor season, Whitehorn qualified for Nationals, placing 12th and earning All-America Second-Team honors under the guidance of Wunderlich. He also guided student-athletes to stong showings in multis over the course of both seasons.

In 2014, Wunderlich qualified for both the indoor and outdoor USATF Championships in the decathlon and heptathlon, finishing 12th in the former and sixth in the latter. The previous year, the Westminster, Maryland, native represented his country as part of Team USA at the 2013  Pan American Combined Events Cup, placing fifth in the decathlon.

Wunderlich had his best season as a Dartmouth coach in 2016 as Kaitlin Whitehorn won both the indoor and outdoor Heptagonal championship in the high jump. After each Ivy title, Whitehorn would go on to earn All-American First Team status at the NCAA Championships, taking seventh during the indoor season and third during the outdoor campaign. Whitehorn became the first Dartmouth woman ever to win three outdoor titles in the high jump and the first ever to win three in a row as well. In all, she finished her collegiate career with six titles in the event.

Under Wunderlich’s coaching, Whitehorn would go on to compete in the 2016 Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon, where she would smash her own Dartmouth record and finish fifth, just missing out on a shot at going to Rio.

Wunderlich’s hiring was a homecoming of sorts for the 2009 graduate with a degree in human biology. As a student-athlete, the Westminister, Maryland, native was an Ivy League champion in the decathlon as a junior and was honored with the Everett L. Palmer Award as a senior for his contributions to the program.

As a member of the Big Green, Wunderlich was also a 2008 Academic All-Ivy League selection and was three-time second team all-conference student-athlete between javelin and the decathlon.

In 2012, Wunderlich posted the 23rd-best mark in the US in the decathlon, achieving the Olympic Trials "B" standard with a score of 7,636 points.

Upon his graduation, Wunderlich went on to serve as a volunteer assistant coach at Johns Hopkins (2009-10), a graduate assistant coach at Central Missouri (2010-12) and, most recently, as an assistant at Marietta since August 2012. While in Ohio the last two years, he worked closely with all individuals in the jumps and multis events as well as javelin throwers.
