Coulombe was originally drafted by the Dodgers in the 17th round of the 2008 MLB Draft out of Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Arizona but did not sign and attended Texas Tech University. He was then drafted again by the Dodgers, in the 25th round of the 2012 MLB Draft, and signed.
He played with the Ogden Raptors and Great Lakes Loons in 2012 and spent all of 2013 with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of the California League, where he was 4-2 with a 4.05 earned run average (ERA) in 54 appearances.
In 2014, he began the season with the Quakes, where he was 3-0 with a 3.05 ERA in 31 games before a late season promotion to the AA Chattanooga Lookouts, where he was in 18 games with a 2.57 ERA.
The Dodgers purchased his contract and called him up to the Majors on September 16, 2014. He pitched one scoreless inning of relief against the Colorado Rockies that same day. He was in five games for the Dodgers in September, allowing two earned runs in 4.1 innings, while being used as a lefty specialist.
Coulombe's grandfather, Bertrand Coulombe, served in the United States Army during World War II. He was the flight engineer for a B-17 Flying Fortress named Ye Olde Pub when it was nearly shot down on December 20, 1943.
