Charles Walker is in his second season with the UMass football staff. He was the outside linebackers coach for the 2014 season and moved to inside linebackers prior to the 2015 season.

In 2012 and 2013, Walker was a member of the Vanderbilt staff with the title of defensive quality control coach. In 2013, the Commodores ranked second in interceptions in the Southeastern Conference (18), led in interception return yards (277), and tied for fourth in sacks (28).

Walker was a member of the Nichols College (Mass.) coaching staff for four years in a number of capacities, including linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator.

No stranger to Amherst, Walker was a four-year letterman for UMass. In addition to being named a captain in 2007, he was named a CAA First-Team selection and a New England Writers All-Star.

Walker appeared in 50 games and started 36, totaling 340 total tackles, eight sacks and 15 TFL. He tied the UMass single-game high for tackles (23), a record he shares with John McKeown. Walker also tallied 10 career games in which he earned 10 or more tackles.

In 2006, he earned Atlantic 10 Second-Team honors and was named honorable mention for the Don Hansen All-Northeast Region Team. That season, he also helped lead the Minutemen to the NCAA Division I-AA Championship Game under head coach Don Brown.

A native of North Lauderdale, Fla., Walker holds a bachelor's degree in sociology from UMass.
