Blaine Taylor (born January 14, 1958) is an American college basketball coach and the former head coach of the Old Dominion Monarchs men's basketball team. Taylor played as a point guard for the University of Montana from 1979 to 1981. In 1981, he was recognized as the school's most outstanding male athlete and earned the Naseby Rhinehart Award as the Most Inspirational Player.[1] Taylor later became an assistant coach at Montana while a graduate student from 1981 to 1984 and again became an assistant to Stew Morrill from 1986 to 1991. He was promoted to head coach of the Grizzlies in 1991 and led the team to two NCAA tournament appearances through 1998. Taylor became an assistant coach under former Grizzly coach Mike Montgomery at Stanford University from 1998 to 2001. The Cardinal were invited to the NCAA tournament during every year of Taylor's tenure, reaching the Elite 8 in the 2001 tournament.[1]

During his tenure at Old Dominion, Taylor has led the Monarchs to CAA Tournament championships in 2005, 2010, and 2011 and appearances in the NCAA tournament in 2005, 2007, 2010, and 2011. The Monarchs lost in their first NCAA tournament game on three of Taylor's trips, but broke through with a first round victory over Notre Dame in 2010 before losing to Baylor in the second round.[1] Taylor also led the Monarchs to the 2006 NIT semifinals, where the team lost to the Michigan Wolverines. The Monarchs also won the inaugural CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament in 2009. On February 5, 2013, Taylor was fired by Old Dominion in the middle of a 2-20 season.[2]
