Tobe Carberry has joined the Columbia Men’s Basketball coaching staff after a successful three-year stint at Yale, where the Bulldogs posted a 30-12 Ivy League record and earned a pair of NCAA Tournament berths.
In 2019-20, Yale captured its second straight Ivy title and won 23 games overall, tying the 2015-16 team for the most in the modern era of Yale Basketball. The Bulldogs were set to play in the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year before it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A year earlier, Yale won the Ivy regular season and tournament titles, while posting a 22-8 overall record. In the NCAA Tournament, the Bulldogs nearly upset third-seeded LSU.
Carberry came to Yale after spending the 2016-17 season at LIU Brooklyn where he helped the Blackbirds post a 20-12 record and finish second in the Northeast Conference.
Prior to LIU, Carberry spent two years as an assistant at Central Connecticut, serving under legendary head coach Howie Dickenman. He also has experience at New Haven and Southern Connecticut. At UNH, he worked for former Yale assistant Ted Hotaling, and in 2012-13 helped the Chargers reach the NCAA postseason for the first time in nine years. New Haven’s 16-6 conference record and third-place regular-season finish were both the best for the team since joining the Northeast-10.
Carberry moved to New Haven in 2010-11 after spending three seasons as the top assistant coach at Southern Connecticut.
After a standout career at the University of Vermont, Carberry spent five years in professional basketball leagues in the United States and Europe, including the NBA Development League, now known as the G-League.
At Vermont, Carberry ranks 13th on the all-time scoring list with 1,235 points and ranked in the top 10 in games played, field goals, assists, steals and blocked shots at the conclusion of his career.
Carberry was a finalist in the National Slam Dunk contest at the Final Four in Indianapolis in 2000 and was awarded the 2000 New England Division I Unsung Hero Award by the New England Basketball Coaches Association.
