Johns Hopkins men’s basketball head coach Josh Loeffler announced today the hiring of Conor Dow as an assistant coach for the Blue Jays. Dow comes to Hopkins after a one-year stint at Ithaca.
“We are thrilled to welcome Conor to Johns Hopkins,” said Loeffler. “He has great energy, a passion for the game and for teaching and a wealth of experiences at multiple levels. I have known Conor for several years and have been consistently impressed with his knowledge of basketball and skill development. He has worked with players in the NBA, international pro leagues and has applicable experiences at academic institutions and great Division III programs. Conor will undoubtedly help to make us better. I am thrilled to welcome him to Homewood.”
Dow has coached at both the college and professional level over the course of his career. After graduating from Clark University in 2015, he joined the staff at Lafayette as Director of Basketball operations. He spent two seasons (2015-17) with the Leopards before joining the Dallas Mavericks’ Player Development staff. Dow served as an assistant coach for the Mavericks’ G League affiliate, the Texas Legends, from 2018-21.
“I am ecstatic & thankful to join Coach Loeffler’s staff,” Dow said. “I look forward to working with first-class student-athletes and adding value to an esteemed athletic department. Go Blue Jays!”
Dow then joined the Saskatchewan Rattlers staff in April 2021 as the lead assistant coach/defensive coordinator before being promoted to interim head coach that summer. In October 2021, Dow was named an assistant coach at Ithaca. He helped the Bombers to a 17-9 record and a berth in the 2022 Liberty League semifinals. In addition, two Bombers were named to the All-Liberty League team.
A native of Needham, MA Dow earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from Clark. He played in 48 games over his final two seasons with the program.
