Allegheny Names Simmons Men's Basketball Coach

A coaching veteran with over two decades of experience, Bob Simmons has been named the head men's basketball coach at Allegheny College.

Simmons replaces Jim Driggs, who resigned in June due to family obligations, and now becomes the 18th head coach in Allegheny men's basketball program history.

"We are extremely excited to welcome Bob Simmons to the Gator family," said Allegheny Director of Athletics Portia Hoeg.  "Throughout his coaching career, his teams have enjoyed great success not only on the court, but also in the classroom.  It is clear that he is committed to both the Allegheny College and NCAA Division III missions, and he is an ideal fit for our department."
