Head Men's Basketball Coachsirokikg@westminster.edu
Westminster College named Kevin Siroki ('93) its new head men's basketball coach with an official start date of May 21, 2012. Siroki previously was the athletic director and the head men's basketball coach at Galen University in Belize, Central America. Siroki, the team MVP as a senior and three-time letterwinner at point guard for the Titans in 1990-93, guided Westminster to a 58-29 record during his four years as an undergraduate.
"It's a dream come true, really," said Siroki. "There have been a lot of great coaches before me. I want my players to work as a family, that's the Titan tradition. Having a family atmosphere that includes alumni and past players coming to the games and being part of the program is important to me."
Siroki will bring a wealth of experience from the national level as well as the collegiate arena. Siroki has earned multiple championships and awards in professional international basketball, as a player and as a coach, over the past 10 years. Prior, Siroki was the assistant men's basketball coach at Tiffin University (00-01) and Westminster (1998-2000).
"I am very pleased and excited that Kevin has accepted our offer to be the next men's basketball coach at Westminster," said the school's athletic director Jim Dafler. "Everyone who knows Kevin knows of his tireless energy, his enthusiasm and positive attitude, his passion for competition, and his love for Titan basketball. I am confident the student-athletes he coaches will come to display most, if not all, of these same characteristics."
"I will bring passion and enthusiasm for the game to Westminster," Siroki added. "My coaching philosophy is based on the mentality of ‘Play hard, smart, and together.' I'm ready to get to work."
