Goldsberry named Assistant Coach at Oakland

Frank Goldsberry has been named Assistant Coach for the Oakland women’s basketball team announced Head Coach Jeff Tungate. Goldsberry, who brings more than 40 years of coaching experience, comes to the Golden Grizzlies after spending the past two seasons as an Assistant Coach at Loyola.
“Frank’s resume speaks for itself. He is a proven winner and one of the finest post coaches in the country,” said Tungate. “He genuinely cares for people and his work ethic is second to none. We are extremely fortunate to have Frank and his wife Paula as members of the Golden Grizzly family.”
Last season, Goldsberry helped guide Loyal to the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) Tournament semifinals followed by a berth in the Women’s Basketball Invitational (WBI) Tournament. Under his direction, five student-athletes earned All-MVC honors including Alison Day, Ellie Rice, Sitori Tanin, Bre Hamton-Bey, and MVC Freshman of the Year, Maya Chandler.
“I appreciate Coach Tungate giving me the opportunity to help make a difference with the women’s basketball program,” said Goldsberry. “I have been impressed with the effort, focus, energy and camaraderie displayed by the student-athletes and coaches towards the goal of reaching the top of the Horizon League and I am ready to be a part of the journey!”
Prior to his time at Loyola Goldsberry had a successful two-year stint as an assistant coach at Miami (Ohio). During Goldsberry’s time in Oxford, Ohio, the RedHawks posted consecutive 20-plus win seasons (44-20 overall) earning back-to-back Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) berths in 2018 and 2019. Five student-athletes earned All-Mid-American Conference (MAC) accolades over that stretch, led by two-time First Team selection Lauren Dickerson.
Before making his way to Miami (Ohio), Goldsberry enjoyed a five-year stint at Milwaukee, spending his first four seasons as an assistant coach before being named Associate Head Coach in 2016-17, a season in which he helped guide the Panthers to a 22-12 overall mark en route to reaching the semifinals of the Women’s Basketball Invitational (WBI).
A native of South Bend, Indiana and graduate of Ball State, Goldsberry entered the college ranks in 2003 at Dayton, where he collected his Master’s Degree in computer science, serving as the Director of Women’s Basketball Operations and Video Coordinator. 
Prior to his time with the Flyers, he spent more than 20 years coaching high school basketball, most notably at Chaminade-Julienne High School in Dayton, Ohio. Goldsberry amassed a 170-16 overall record from 1996-2003 leading the Eagles to a pair of Division II state titles and a USA Today No. 1 national ranking.
