Rob Senderoff: Kent State's all-time leader in wins has humble roots in New York

The Teacher Coach with T.K. Griffith and Scott Matthew Callaghan

Rob Senderoff was banished from basketball.  Twice.  Cut from his college team at Albany, he persisted and hung on as a manager for JV Coach James Jones--now the successful coach at Yale University.  Then, he was given NCAA infractions at Indiana University and was out of the business temporarily. Until Kent State AD Laing Kennedy and Coach Geno Ford brought him back as an assistant.  The rest is history, as Rob has not only become the leader in coaching wins all time at KSU, but also has an incredible record of graduating seniors with 34 of 35 getting their degree.  Coach Senderoff is real, his roots are humble and he coaches that way.  His players know he cares and he wants them better.  His assistants are often from the Kent State family as well, and his family resides nearby in Stow.Support the show
