BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford has named Brian Sansom, an alumnus who led the Lady Panthers to the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference tournament final last year, as the interim men’s basketball coach.

The appointment will take effect Dec. 29, and Sansom will lead practice sessions over the holiday break.

Sansom will leave his position as coach of the boys’ basketball team for the Archbishop Walsh Eagles, which had a 7-2 record so far this season.

Last year Sansom led the Lady Panthers basketball team to the AMCC tournament final against Medaille while serving as interim coach.

Sansom replaces former head men’s basketball coach Andy Moore.

“We are very thankful for Brian’s willingness to step in during this time,” said Lori Mazza, director of athletics. “Over the years, he has progressed as a head coach, and his experience with the men’s basketball program at Archbishop Walsh made him a good choice to lead the Panthers.”

Sansom previously worked as the facility manager/basketball director at McGee’s Courts 4 Sports in Mason, Ohio, in 2008-09 and was also the assistant women’s basketball coach at Wilmington (Ohio) College.

Sansom was also the Pitt-Bradford women’s assistant basketball coach from 2005-08 and served two years as assistant softball coach from 2006-08.

Sansom is a native of Grove City and 2003 graduate of Grove City High School, who earned his bachelor’s degree in sport and recreation management from Pitt-Bradford in 2008. He is currently working on a master’s degree in sport management studies/ intercollegiate athletic administration at California University of Pennsylvania.

Assisting Sansom will be Mike Haskell.

“Both Mike and Brian have a true love for our team, and we are hoping they will lead this team to another AMCC championship,” Mazza said.

Pitt-Bradford will launch a national search for a new full-time coach once the season has been completed.

Brian, I hope you're a good boy or Lori will have coal in your stocking.
