Head Coach Vince Inglima
Vince Inglima was named interim head basketball coach ahead of the 2017-18 season and had the interim tag removed on December 15, after the first 10 games of the season.
In his first season at the helm, the Gators marched to a 19-11 record and a 14-8 record in CCAA play en route to a conference semifinals appearance. Three players were named to the All-CCAA Team and Evan Zeller was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team.
Previously, Inglima served as the Gators' top assistant coach for four seasons, where he helped SF State to a historic season in 2016-17. The No. 22 Gators finished 25-6, the best mark in the program's modern era and the most since the 1939-40 season, and earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament Championship for the first time since 1993-94.
In his four years with the program, he has coached 15 All-CCAA performers, a CCAA Newcomer of the Year, and the program's first All-American (Warren Jackson) since 1994-95. In that span, the team’s GPA rose from a 2.3 to a 3.0 while winning 61 percent of their contests. The 44 wins over the last two seasons is the most in consecutive seasons during the modern era, and since 45 wins in the 1938-40 seasons.
Prior to joining SF State, Inglima was at conference foe Cal State Monterey Bay for three seasons. As a player, Inglima played professionally in Australia for the Dandenong Rangers. He led his team to the grand final in his first of four seasons in Australia’s second division. In 2010, Inglima coached the Rangers U-18 team to the title in the National Junior Club Championships.
Inglima graduated magna cum laude from Sonoma State with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics. In his senior season, the Seawolves won the CCAA for the first time in school history. Along the way, Inglima earned CCAA Male Athlete of the Year, All-West Region, and All-American honors. He still holds the school record for career 3-point percentage (44.6) and is third in free throw percentage (82.5). Inglima was an Academic All-American, and was awarded Academic All-District by ESPN The Magazine. He was inducted into the Sonoma State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2012.
After graduating from Carson High School in Carson City, Nevada in 2002, Inglima attended Cabrillo College for two years before moving on to Sonoma State.
Inglima resides in San Bruno, California with his wife, Jessica; daughter, Carina; and son, Enzo.
