Anthony Solomon Assistant Coach

Anthony Solomon joined the Georgetown men’s basketball coach staff as an assistant in May 2016.

One of the most respected assistant coaches at the collegiate level, Solomon, a Virginia native, came to the Hilltop after spending the previous eight years as an assistant to Mike Brey at the University of Notre Dame, his second stint with the Fighting Irish.

“I am pleased to have someone with Anthony’s reputation and experience join my staff,” Thompson said. “He is a highly regarded coach and a consummate professional. Anthony is a tremendous teacher and I think our players will benefit from his knowledge.”

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 the NCAA Tournament the last two years. With Solomon on the bench, Notre Dame teams won 20 or more games and registered 10 or more conference (BIG EAST and ACC) regular-season victories on nine occasions.

In 2007-08, Solomon served as a member of the University of Dayton men’s basketball staff. He helped the Flyers to a 23-11 record that season and a spot in the quarterfinals of the National Invitation Tournament. Dayton also was ranked for four weeks during the season and climbed to as high as 14th in the polls.

Solomon departed Notre Dame following the conclusion of the 2002-03 campaign when he was named head coach at St. Bonaventure University and served in that capacity through the conclusion of the 2006-07 season.

Solomon initially served as an assistant at Notre Dame from 2000-03, assisting on teams that posted three-consecutive 20-win campaigns, three-straight 10-win regular seasons in the BIG EAST and earned an at-large spot in the NCAA Championship field.

Prior to Solomon’s initial three-year stint at Notre Dame, he was a member of the Clemson staff in 1998 as an assistant athletic director for basketball operations and was promoted to assistant coach in June 2000.

Solomon held assistant positions at Manhattan College (1992-93) and Richmond (1993-94) before enjoying a four-year stint at his alma mater, Virginia, from 1994-98. While with the Cavaliers, he served as coordinator of recruiting and player development. During Solomon’s tenure at Virginia, the Cavaliers advanced to the NCAA Championship twice, including a trip to the Elite Eight in 1995, when the team tied for the regular-season ACC crown.

He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of Delaware in 1988-89. He then moved to Bowling Green the following season and spent three seasons (1989-92) there, helping the Falcons reach the NIT on two occasions.

Solomon enrolled at Virginia as a student in the fall of 1983, earned a basketball scholarship and was a four-year letterwinner. Virginia made three NCAA Championship appearances, earned one NIT berth and won 78 games during his four-year tenure. Solomon was a member of the ‘84 team that advanced to the NCAA Final Four in Seattle, Washington.

Solomon graduated from Virginia in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in rhetoric and communication studies. He is married to the former Tracy Coleburn, a former track standout at UVa. They have two daughters, Maya (a junior basketball player at Maryville University) and Kamra, and a son, Anthony Jr.
