Tod Kowalczyk

Tod Kowalczyk completed his first season as assistant basketball coach at Marquette in 2000-01. Among Kowalczyk's duties were on-campus recruiting, player development and game preparation.

Kowalczyk, a native of Green Bay, was a valued member of Kevin Bannon's staff at Rutgers for three seasons prior to his appointment at Marquette during the summer of 2000, and helped the Scarlet Knights to NIT appearances in 1999 and 2000. He was instrumental in bringing in back-to-back recruiting classes that were regarded among the Top 25 by many analysts and, during the 1998-99 season, he helped lead RU to an overall record of 19-13. After serving as an assistant his first two seasons, he was promoted to Associate Head Coach prior to the start of the 1999-2000 campaign.

Prior to his stint at Rutgers, he served under Bannon at Rider from 1993 through 1997, and helped that program compile a ledger of 72-45 along with a berth to the 1994 NCAA Tournament. Before arriving at Rider, he spent two seasons as an assistant at both St. Anselm College (1991-93) and New Hampshire (1989-91). In each of his two years at St. Anselm, the team earned a berth in the NCAA Division II Tournament and one of the classes that Kowalczyk recruited was ranked No. 5 in the nation.

Kowalczyk is a 1988 graduate of the University of Minnesota-Duluth and, as a forward on the basketball team, helped UMD to four consecutive National Tournament appearances. During his college career, he earned a Most Valuable Player award as well as all-conference and all-district accolades. Off the court, he excelled in the classroom, earning Academic All-America honors while receiving a bachelor of applied science in health education and physical education. While at Rider, he received a master's degree in educational administration.

He is the son of Rod Kowalczyk, the former long-time coach and athletic director of DePere High School and is married to Nicole Diomede.
