Phil Seymore enters his fifth season as an assistant basketball coach at Providence College. Seymore came to Providence after serving as assistant coach at the University of Richmond for three seasons. While at Richmond he was responsible for the team's recruiting and the offensive and defensive development of guards and wingmen. He also prepared scouting reports of the opposing teams for the Spiders.
A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., and a graduate of Canisius College, Seymore began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Canisius in 1983 under his former coach Nick Macarchuk (a former PC assistant coach). After one season at Canisius, he went to Turner Carroll High School in Buffalo, N.Y. where he coached for four years, including two seasons as the head coach. His 1989-90 team at Turner won the State Catholic School Class C title and the 1988-89 squad captured the Manhattan Cup Championship. After leaving Turner Carroll High School in 1990, Seymore spent the next seven years as an assistant coach at Canisius.
Seymore began his collegiate playing career at Independence Junior College before transferring to Canisius. At Canisius, he averaged 16.8 points and 4.6 assists in two seasons as a point guard. Seymore was selected in the seventh round of the 1982 NBA draft by the New York Knicks. He played one season for Albany of the Continental Basketball Association where he earned 1983 All-Star honors.
Upon hiring Seymore, Head Coach Tim Welsh said, "I have a tremendous amount of respect for Phil. I competed against him at Canisius and I played against a lot of good players that he recruited. He is an excellent recruiter and a very good coach."
Seymore is married to the former Alicia Parker. They have one daughter Amani.
