Tucker Waugh spent two seasons (2005-06) as the wide receivers coach at Stanford. Waugh has coached wide receivers for the past 11 campaigns while building a reputation as a bright, energetic and intelligent young coach.

Waugh's most recent assignment prior to Stanford was a five-year stint as the wide receivers coach at Army (2000-04), adding the duties of recruiting coordinator during his final two seasons. When Waugh arrived at West Point, he inherited a group of receivers who caught a combined 14 career passes. Over the next three seasons, Waugh's receivers caught 322 balls. One of his players, Aaron Alexander, caught 64 passes for 861 yards in 2003 to set a new single season record at Army.

Waugh coached for five seasons at Illinois State (1995-99) before moving to West Point. He coached outside linebackers in 1995, running backs in 1996 and wide receivers his final three years. He had an All-Gateway Conference selection in each of his three seasons as the receivers' coach: Marquis Mosely in 1997, and Ricky Garrett in 1998 and 1999. Waugh helped the Redbirds establish themselves as one of the most prolific passing attacks in the nation as the club went to the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs in 1998 and advanced to the I-AA national semifinals in 1999.

A 1993 graduate of DePauw, where he earned a Bachelor's degree in English Composition and Physical Education, Waugh began his coaching career at Otterbein College in 1993 coaching the quarterbacks. He returned to his alma mater in 1994 as a wide receivers coach. He also has a coaching fellowship with the British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League on his resume.
