Sean Tabb  Named Assistant Basketball Coach

Providence, Rhode Island - Sean Tabb, the interim head coach at Trinity College for the past two years has been named assistant men's basketball coach at Brown in an announcement made by head coach Jesse Agel. 


In addition, Agel announced that Bears' junior Marques Coleman has been named a student-assistant coach for the Bears.


"We're thrilled to have Sean join our coaching staff," said Agel.  "He brings solid playing and coaching experience to the program. With boundless enthusiasm and strong national recruiting ties, he is a great addition to our staff."


Tabb led Trinity to the NESCAC Championship Tournament in each of his two seasons ads interim head coach of the Bantams. He was an assistant coach at Trinity for nine years prior to the 2008-09 season,


A 1999 graduate of the University of Hartford, Tabb earned a bachelor's degree in education. At Hartford, Tabb starred in basketball for the Hawks and served as captain in his senior season.  He went on to earn a master's degree in sports leadership from Virginia Commonwealth University.


A Connecticut native, Tabb is one of the few male players in Connecticut State history to have scored 2,000 points during his high school career, starring at Somers High School.



Coleman missed his entire freshman season, and made a comeback attempt in 2009-2010. He was limited in the amount he could play, but still competed in 14 games for Agel.


"I'm sad that Marcus won't be able to compete after valiantly coming back from two knee operations," said Agel. "I'm thrilled he will be remaining in the Brown basketball family in a integral role, as he joins the staff as a student assistant."
