Papadinis named Assistant Basketball Coach at Bowdoin

The Bowdoin College Athletic Department has hired Tyler Papadinis as assistant coach for the Polar Bear Men’s Basketball Team.
A veteran Division III coach, Papadinis was most recently the head coach at Rhodes (Tenn.) College from 2018-2020.
“I’m excited to be welcoming Coach Ty to our program,” said head men’s basketball coach Alex Lloyd. “He has experience with both high-achieving student-athletes and basketball programs. His ability to form and maintain relationships on campus, and as a recruiter, brings a lot to our program and community. We’re looking forward to getting started.”
Prior to his two years at Rhodes, where he had one All-Southern Athletic Association selection, Papadinis was the associate head coach for MIT. In his three seasons with the Engineers, the program proved to be one of the best in New England, recording 66 wins, two NEWMAC Championships, and two NCAA Tournament trips.
Papadinis got his coaching start at UMass Boston from 2008-2015, earning his master’s degree while serving as the assistant coach for five years before being named associate head coach. In addition to his collegiate coaching experience, Papadinis also has NBA experience serving as an operations intern for the New York Knicks before accepting the position at UMass Boston.
Papadinis owns a master’s degree in Business Administration from UMass Boston and graduated from Ithaca College in 2007 with a degree in Sport Management. He replaces Felix Abongo, who accepted a position as Director of Basketball Operations at Boston University earlier this summer.
