Hobart tabs alum to lead basketball program

Hobart College Interim Director of Athletics Brian Miller named Stefan Thompson ’13 the head coach of the Statesmen basketball program. He will be the 20th man to lead the program since its inception in 1901.

“I have always respected and admired Stef’s ability as a leader,” Miller said. “I witnessed it first-hand throughout his outstanding career as a Hobart student-athlete, and later when he returned as an assistant coach. As we progressed through our exhaustive search, it became clear that Coach Thompson’s energy, passion and vision for the future of Hobart basketball was aligned exactly with the qualities we were looking for in a head coach. His professionalism, depth of knowledge, engaging personality and love of Hobart stood out. I’m so excited to see where he can take our program.”
