Guest: Rob Senderoff, Kent State Head Coach

Kent State head coach Rob Senderoff joins the Basketball Podcast to share insights on toughness, disruption, and getting the right shots.

Rob Senderoff ranks as the all-time winningest coach in program history with 219 wins. Senderoff is in an elite company that includes Tom Izzo (Michigan State) and Mark Few (Gonzaga) as head coaches who have not had a losing season during their head coaching career (minimum of 10 seasons coached).

In the 2022-2023 season, Senderoff led Kent St to a 28-7, 15-3 in conference play. It is the best record of Senderoff's career and the best record by Kent State since 2007-2008 when they also went 28-7 overall. Kent St would defeat Toledo to win the MAC Tournament. It was the second time in Senderoff's career his Flashes won the Tournament and their second appearance in the NCAA Tournament during his tenure.

The 2022 MAC Coach of the Year and 26-year coaching veteran has continued the success of the storied program that he helped build by leading the Golden Flashes to seven 20-win campaigns, the most by any coach in Kent State history. In 2016-17, Kent St returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2008 and claimed the program's first Mid-American Conference Tournament Championship.
