Kent State assistant named one of the 'Best Future NCAA Head Coaches' by national publication
KENT, Ohio – Kent State Assistant Coach Bobby Steinburg has long been known as one of the most highly networked and knowledgeable recruiters in the game today. Steinburg's talents were recently recognized by Basketball Times as one of the 'Best Future NCAA Division I Head Coaches'; ranking No. 6 nationally.
Junior College expert Tony Jimenez compiled the list out of the current four-year school assistant coaches who are former Junior College Head Coaches.
Now in his fourth year at Kent State, Steinburg's accomplishments were highlighted by Jimenez in the Nov. 16 edition of Basketball Times. Steinburg joined the Golden Flashes after two seasons as the Head Coach at Motlow (Tenn.) Community College.
In his two seasons at Motlow, the Richmond, Va. native turned a program that won only seven games in the season, prior to his appointment into a national contender. In his first season at the helm in 2006-07, the Bucks compiled a 10-6 TJCCAA league record and a share of the Eastern Division regular season championship. In year two, given time to bring a full recruiting class aboard, Steinburg led Motlow to a school record 28-5 mark and a No. 15 final national ranking
The 15-year coaching veteran is widely respected in coaching circles as a great teacher of fundamentals with a gift for evaluating and establishing relationships with prospective student-athletes. His work on the recruiting trail has paid huge dividends earning Kent State postseason appearances every season he has been on staff. During his tenure he has helped recruit four Junior College All-Americans into the Golden Flashes program.
