Colorado coach Anthony Coleman leaves for Arizona State

The Buffs assistant is going back to where he started.

Denver Post

As first reported Arizona State-affiliated media, Colorado Buffaloes assistant coach Anthony Coleman has left for a similar job with the Sun Devils.

The revolving door continues, as Coleman leaves Boulder after one season. He came from ASU, so it’s not particularly surprising that he has re-joined Anthony Coleman’s staff. It’s unfortunate for Colorado, as they have now lost Coleman and his predecessor Kim English (to Tennessee) after a single season.

Coleman, a former professional basketball player, is an excellent coach and a better recruiter. Upon joining Colorado’s staff, he immediately helped secure the talents of Keeyshawn Barthelemy, a top-100 recruit from Toronto. In the proceeding months, he helped Tad Boyle land blue chip talents Nique Clifford and Jabari Walker.

There’s no telling as to who Boyle will target to fill out his coaching staff, but he has a track record of bringing in up-and-coming coaches.
