Bob Ghiloni
Bob Ghiloni
Title: Head Men's Basketball Coach
Phone: 740-587-6586
Email: ghilonir@denison.edu
Year: 18th Year

Bob Ghiloni returns for his 18th season with the Big Red Men's Basketball team in 2019-20.  In recent years the men's basketball program has soared to new heights, highlighted by three-straight appearances in the NCAC Final Four and one NCAA Tournament appearance.

In 2016-17, one of the program’s most successful seasons ever, Denison went 22-5 and 15-3 in the North Coast Athletic Conference. Denison was nationally ranked throughout the year and enjoyed winning streaks of eight games to open the year and nine-straight in January.  Seniors Jett Speelman and David Meurer were named to the All-NCAC first-team and Speelman was an All-Region honoree. Off the court, Ghiloni was honored as the first-ever recipient of the Bonar Family Mentorship and Teaching Excellence Award presented to one Denison faculty member.

The successes of the 2016-17 season came on the heels of a stellar 2015-16 campaign that saw the Big Red win the NCAC Tournament Championship by defeating Wittenberg, Ohio Wesleyan and The College of Wooster.  The win punched Denison's ticket to the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time since 1997.

During his tenure in Granville, Ghiloni has led DU basketball to 13 North Coast Athletic Conference tournament appearances and two NCAC Tournament championship appearances (2012, 2016).  Ghiloni ranks third in career wins at Denison with 179.

In 2011-12 Ghiloni and the Big Red put together one of the most impressive finishes to a season in school history as they went 6-2 over the final month of play to secure the No. 5 seed in the NCAC Tournament.  As the fifth seed, DU rolled into Crawfordsville, Ind. for the second time in less than a month. Trailing by 13 in the second half, a 17-0 run by senior Larry Farmer put the Big Red ahead and secured DU's place in the conference semifinals.

The late-season magic continued as the Big Red turned a solid performance against host and top-seeded Wittenberg into an eight-point win and the program's first berth to the NCAC Tournament title game.  In the conference final, Denison pushed second-seeded Wooster to the limit but fell just short of their first NCAC Tournament crown.

In 2004-05, Ghiloni was named NCAC Coach of the Year after posting the program's first winning season in seven years.

Ghiloni came to Denison from Bishop Ready High School in Columbus (Ohio) where he was the head coach of the Silver Knights boys' basketball program for 15 seasons. In 2001-02, Ghiloni's Ready squad posted an impressive 23-5 record and reached the state tournament championship finals in Division III.

In his 15-year run at Ready, Ghiloni directed a dramatic turn around in the boys' basketball program which resulted in six consecutive winning seasons, two district championships and the 2001-02 trip to the state championship. In 2002, Ready won its first Central Catholic League championship since 1979 and made its first state tournament appearance since 1973. In his time at Bishop Ready, Ghiloni was named Central District Division III Coach of the Year five times.

Along with his coaching duties, Ghiloni was director of admissions at Ready and also has served as director of student and academic affairs and director of guidance. He has also taught courses in world history and American history.

Prior to coaching at Ready, Ghiloni spent three seasons as an assistant basketball coach at Capital University in Columbus. Also included in Ghiloni's extensive professional background are two more Columbus coaching stints as an assistant with Ohio Dominican (1983-1984) and St. Francis DeSales High School (1981-1983). Ghiloni has also served as an instructor and administrator for several local and regional basketball camps.

A native of nearby Newark, Ohio, Ghiloni graduated from The Ohio State University in 1981 with a bachelor of science degree in secondary education. He earned his master of science degree in education from the University of Dayton in 1985.

Before transferring to Ohio State as an undergraduate, Ghiloni attended OSU's Newark campus for two years and played collegiate basketball there. While at OSU-Newark he served as team captain and earned several honors, including the Coach's Award and the McGrevey Scholar-Athlete Award. He played his secondary school basketball at St. Peter and Paul Seminary High School in Newark, graduating in 1975.

At Denison, Ghiloni's appointment also includes academic rank as an assistant professor on the faculty of the University's Department of Health Exercise and Sport Studies.

Ghiloni and his wife, Molly, have two daughters, Danielle and Andrea and currently live in Columbus.
