Basketball was started in the 2006–2007 season, after the hiring of Rollie Massimino in 2005, as Director of Basketball Operations for both men’s and women’s basketball. On 14 December 2016, Massimino, Keiser University’s men’s basketball coach, became the third active coach to achieve 800 career wins and the ninth coach overall. Later as Keiser University’s Seahawk basketball team leads the Sun Conference, Coach Marcus Chief Bryant is working very hard on the team.
The former Sunshine State Conference (SCC) champion credits the selflessness of team members and fellow coaching staff for the group’s athletic and academic success. Once in an interview, he said that “As a new coach, I’m extremely excited about the winning traditions of the Keiser University Seahawk Athletic Teams, and having followed coach Rollie Massimino for years, I know there are big shoes to fill as we gain wins on the Massimino Court.
As a group with one of the highest NAIA percentages, that leaves a bit of pressure and I’m excited to take it on”. He led the Tritons to the 2004 SSC Championship while making two appearances in the NCAA National Tournament. During his time, Bryant’s teams averaged 23 wins with a trip to the NCAA Elite Eight in 2003. Bryant is one of the best coaches in the University’s history.
