Coumbe was born in Antrim, PA. He played semipro ball from 1911-1913 and the minors part of 1913. He first came to the majors with the 1914 Boston Red Sox, posting a 1.44 ERA in 17 games (62 1/3 innings). He was traded at midseason as part of a deal for Vean Gregg and subsequently spent several years with the Cleveland Indians. He was not to be with them when they won the World Series; from 1920 to 1921 he was with the Cincinnati Reds, who won the World Series before Coumbe arrived. After his big league days, Coumbe played in the Pacific Coast League. Arm injuries eventually led to him being converted to an outfielder and first baseman late in his career, but thereafter he went back to pitching for a few more years. He hit .331 for Salt Lake City in 1925, although he was overshadowed by teammates Tony Lazzeri, who hit 60 home runs, and Lefty O'Doul, who hit .375.
