Seth Greenberg joined ESPN in 2012 as a college basketball analyst, bringing 35 years of coaching experience to the job. He appears on various platforms, most often as a game or studio analyst, and is a regular on SportsCenter and ESPN Radio. At the start of the 2014-2015 season, Greenberg joined ESPN’s College GameDay Covered by State Farm – the popular Saturday college basketball program that originates from one of the day’s top matchups – as an analyst. He is also an analyst on ACC Network’s Bald Men on Campus, alongside Jay Bilas and LaPhonso Ellis.
He has contributed to ESPN’s game coverage with the “Behind-the-Bench” series, where coaches allow him additional access in game and Greenberg gives the viewers analysis from a coach’s point of view. Greenberg is also a co-host on the weekly podcast Courtside with ESPN analyst Dan Dakich, available on ESPN.com.
Greenberg posted a record of 383-293 in his 22 years as a head coach (Long Beach State, South Florida, Virginia Tech), including four wins against No. 1 ranked teams, and road wins at Allen Fieldhouse, Dean Dome and Cameron Indoor Stadium, and secured 11 postseason appearances. He led the Virginia Tech Hokies for nine seasons (2003-12), where he was a two-time ACC Coach of the Year and reached the post-season six times. He is second on the school’s all-time wins list with 170-123 record, and his Hokies were 3-3 against No. 1 ranked teams with all three losses coming on the final possession of the game.
In 2013, Greenberg was inducted into the Long Beach State Hall of Fame. He was also inducted into The National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in 2012, and was presented with the inaugural Al LoBalbo Award by his alma mater, Fairleigh Dickinson, in 2009.
