Profile
Anthony Solomon is in his second stint at the University of Dayton.

He returned to UD as a member of Anthony Grant's staff in 2018. Previously he spent the 2007-08 season as a Flyer while a member of Brian Gregory’s staff.

One of the most-respected assistant coaches in the game, Solomon’s 31-year college coaching career also includes stops at Virginia (his alma mater), Notre Dame (twice), Clemson and Georgetown.

After earning four letters at Virginia from 1983-87, Solomon moved to the sidelines as a graduate assistant at Delaware for the 1988-89 season. He then coached at Bowling Green (1989-92), Manhattan (1992-93), Richmond (1993-94) and Virginia (1994-98). He then took an administrative position at Clemson as Assistant Athletic Director for Basketball Operations for two seasons before returning to the court as an assistant at Notre Dame (2000-03).

Solomon then went to St. Bonaventure, where he was head coach from 2003 to 2007, stabilizing a scandal-plagued program. After SBU, he had his first stint at Dayton (2007-08) before returning to Notre Dame (2008-16). While at Notre Dame, Solomon worked primarily with the Irish guards and coordinated the program’s national recruiting efforts. He helped lead Notre Dame to the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Championship in 2014-15 and to Elite Eight appearances in 2015 and 2016.

In 2016-17, Solomon was on the staff at Georgetown.

The teams that Solomon played on at Virginia made three NCAA Championship appearances, earned one NIT berth and won 78 games during his tenure. Solomon was a member of the ‘84 team that advanced to the NCAA Final Four in Seattle, Washington. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in rhetoric and communication studies.

Anthony and his wife Tracy have two daughters -- Maya and Kamra, and one son, AJ (Anthony).
