Tony Bennett Biography

Tony Bennett is a famous Basketball Coach, who was born on June 1, 1969 in United States. Basketball coach who began coaching the University of Virginia men’s basketball team in 2009. He is a multiple-time winner of the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Coach of the Year award as well as the Henry Iba Award as the NCAA’s top men’s basketball coach. In 2019, he led Virginia to an NCAA Championship. According to Astrologers, Tony Bennett's zodiac sign is Gemini.

Anthony Guy Bennett (born June 1, 1969) is an American basketball coach and former player. He has been the head men’s basketball coach at the University of Virginia since March 31, 2009. He is a three-time winner of the Henry Iba Award for national coach of the year — only the legendary John Wooden won more — as well as a two-time awardee of similar honors from the AP and Naismith and a four-time ACC Coach of the Year. Bennett is also just the third former NBA player to win the NCAA Championship as a head coach. He has been ranked the top defensive coach in college basketball by sources including a CBS Sports poll of head coaches in 2015, and a list compiled by ESPN Insider in 2018. The style of basketball he teaches has often been compared to a boa constrictor choking out opponents, and his teams are known for their unselfish play, defense-first philosophy, and tempo control.

He married his third wife Susan in 2007 and has children. His father Dick Bennett and sister Kathi Bennett are also college basketball coaches.

UVA brought in a well-rounded recruiting class which included Bennett’s first McDonald’s All-American, a consensus top 50 recruit, Kyle Guy. Former five-star recruit and transfer Austin Nichols became eligible after sitting out the previous season, but was suspended for two weeks including the season opening game for an undisclosed incident and dismissed entirely for a second undisclosed incident after playing (and starting) in one game. UVA nonetheless broke its record for consecutive weeks ranked in the AP Top 25 poll with a streak of 64 polling weeks spanning more than three years, breaking its previous best of 49 in the 1980s. Bennett recorded his 250th win as a head coach against No. 14 Notre Dame, in South Bend, 71–54, while extending his record against Mike Brey to 5–0. The Cavaliers notched impressive double-digit victories over eventual national champions No. 5 North Carolina, 53–43, and No. 4 ranked Louisville, 71–55. This completed Bennett’s head-to-head rivalry record against Hall of Famer Rick Pitino at 5–1 before Pitino was dismissed for NCAA rules violations in the off-season.
