Buonaguro and New Staff Help Team Lacking Depth
Tobin Anderson was named assistant men's basketball coach at Siena College on May 4, 2011.
"I'm really excited with the hire," Buonaguro said at the time of his hiring. "Tobin brings extraordinary experience to the job. I have known him for the last 20 years, and admired his knowledge and work ethic. He's a first class person and coach. I'm confident he will help us bring Siena basketball back to the top of the MAAC."
Anderson served as the head coach at Division III Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y. from 2004-11. In that capacity he posted a 118-63 overall record in seven seasons. Hamilton won the Liberty League regular-season title in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Round of 32 in 2006 after claiming the Tournament Championship.
"I'm obviously very excited to be a part of a program with the tradition Siena has," Anderson said. "I'm really looking forward to working for Mitch. He's a great guy - a person I really respect and trust. I can't wait to get started and help build upon the success this program has had."
Prior to his time at Hamilton, Anderson served as head coach at Clarkson University in Potsdam from 1999-2004. He enjoyed the best five-year record in the history of Clarkson basketball (67-66), leading the program to its first three postseason bids. His 2002 team enjoyed the biggest win-percentage improvement in all of Division III, and the 2004 squad won the Liberty League and advanced to the ECAC Semifinals.
Tobin got his start in coaching as an assistant coach at Clarkson in 1996-97 and at LeMoyne College from 1997-99. He has been very active in the Five-Star and Hoop Group Elite summer camp programs, serving as an instructor and guest lecturer for the past 13 years.
Anderson graduated from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn. in 1995 and received his master's degree from Florida State in 1996. He graduated as the fourth all-time leading scorer in Wesleyan history.
