Brian Chapman –College Basketball Coach

An integral part of the William Paterson University program since arriving with head coach Jose Rebimbas in 1995, Brian Chapman has played a vital role in helping to build William Paterson into a regional and national power as he begins his 20th season at the school in 2014-15. His work on the recruiting trail and his rapport with the student-athletes are two of his finest traits, while his ability to break down an opponent has helped the Pioneers achieve some of their greatest accomplishments in the program’s history.

With his help, the Pioneers have recorded eight 20-win seasons, made eight NCAA Division III Tournament appearances (1997, 1999, 2000, 2011, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2012), won six NJAC championships (2000, 2001, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2012), made two trips to the Division III Final Four (1999 and 2001) and secured a spot in the 2001 national championship game.

William Paterson has routinely outrebounded opponents during his tenure, including a +7.8 rebounding edge in 2011-12 that rated 11th in Division III. This is a credit to the forwards he has helped develop. During his early years, it was the duo of David Coleman and Gerard Wilson. On the 1999 and 2001 Final Four teams, as well as the 2001-02 NJAC championship squad, it was the talented group of Keyth Hardy, Terrance McNeal, Ray Ortiz, Mufeed Thomas and Chris Lauer. He helped fine-tune the skills of two-time all-American Luis Martinez (2006, 2007), as well as the 2008 and 2010 NJAC Defensive Player of the Year, and 2010 NJAC Player of the Year and second-team all-American, Abdoulaye Ouedraogo. Most recently, Lance Brown was the 2012 NJAC Player of the Year and a second-team all-American.

Prior to his arrival, Chapman served as the head coach at Hudson County Prep from 1993-95. Before that, he was the junior varsity and varsity assistant coach at Don Bosco Prep from 1991-93. Also the academic coordinator for the Pioneers’ athletic department, Chapman earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Ramapo College in 1986. He and his wife, Shannon, have two daughters: Bailey and Molly.
