Although he’s the head coach at Duquesne, the city of Akron and Akron basketball will always be special to him.
That feeling is mutual as Dambrot has been inducted into the Akron Hall of Fame.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
The 60-year old was born in Akron, attended college there and then went on to be the men’s assistant coach (2001-2004) before having an incredible 13-year old run as the Zips head coach.
During his long tenure as Akron head coaches, Dambrot compiled a record of 305-139, averages 23 wins a season and became the winningest head coach in the history of the program.
Here’s another example of the success Dambrot accomplished at Akron. During his final 12 seasons, his teams won 21 or more games in each of those seasons, that’s something only Kansas, Gonzaga and Duke were able to do during that timeframe.
Congratulations to our very own @CoachDambrot on his induction to the Akron Hall of Fame!
