Buffalo State Alum Gonzalez Named Head Men's Basketball Coach at Seton Hall

Posted: April 7, 2006
Former Buffalo State basketball player Bobby Gonzalez has been named the head men's basketball coach at Seton Hall.
Gonzalez, 42, makes the move to the Big East school after a tremendous seven-year run as the head coach at Manhattan College. He led the Jaspers to four 20-win seasons and two NCAA Tournaments in seven years, including finishing .500 or above in the league in each season. His record at Manhattan was 129-77, and his team won the MAAC regular season championship three times and the tournament title twice.

Gonzalez is widely known as one of the top up-and-coming coaches in the NCAA, an intense competitor, outstanding game coach and tireless recruiter. Prior to becoming a head coach, he was an assistant on Pete Gillen’s staffs at Xavier (1993-94), Providence (1994-98) and Virginia (1998-99). He was also an assistant coach at Binghamton University (1987-88) and Broome Community College (1986-87).

Gonzalez graduated from Buffalo State in 1986 with a degree in communication. He was recognized by the College in 2004 as a recipient of the Young Alumnus Achievement Award.
