Men's basketball coach is new assistant at Siena
Hamilton College head men's basketball coach Tobin Anderson was named an assistant on the men's basketball coaching staff at Division I Siena College on May 4.
Anderson will be working with Siena head coach Mitch Buonaguro, who just finished his first season with the Saints. Siena is a member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
Anderson posted a record of 118-63 in seven seasons with the Continentals, and won 185 games in 12 seasons at Hamilton and Clarkson University.
Anderson led the Continentals to the second round of the NCAA Division III championship in 2006. He guided the program to at least a share of three Liberty League regular season titles and one league tournament crown. Hamilton made six league tournament appearances and reached the finals five times under Anderson.
"Tobin Anderson has done a great job keeping the men's basketball program at the level of excellence it has enjoyed for more than 30 years," Director of Athletics Jon Hind '80 said.
Anderson coached one All-American, the 2011 league offensive player of the year, the 2009 rookie of the year, and the 2007 player of the year and co-rookie of the year. In 2010-11, three of his players made the league's all-academic team.
Anderson's 2005-06 squad had a 23-5 record and defeated SUNY Plattsburgh in the first round of the NCAA championship. The 23 wins are a career high and the NCAA berth was his first. All five starters were selected to the all-league team.
Anderson graduated from Wesleyan (Conn.) University in 1995 with a bachelor’s degree in American studies. He was a four-year starter, a two-year captain and scored 1,129 points. Anderson earned a master’s in athletic administration from Florida State University in 1996.
"We thank Tobin for his service to Hamilton College, and we wish him the best at Siena," Hind said. "We will start a search immediately to find a coach who will continue to build upon our tradition-rich basketball program."
