Larry Mangino begins his second season as director of scouting/recruiting for the Virginia men’s basketball program. Mangino brings 28 years of coaching experience, including nine years as a head coach and two years at the NBA level, to head coach Tony Bennett’s staff.
Mangino served as an assistant coach at SMU from 2010-12 and returns to college basketball after serving as the athletic director at Charlottesville High School from 2013-16.
In 2011-12, SMU posted its most successful season in more than a decade, recording its first 20-win season and postseason bid since 1999-2000. Prior to SMU, Mangino spent two seasons as player development coach for the NBA’s Denver Nuggets from 2008-10.
Prior to joining the Nuggets' staff, Mangino spent seven seasons as an assistant men's basketball coach at the Air Force Academy (2000-07). The Falcons made the 2004 and 2006 NCAA Tournaments and advanced to the semifinal round of 2007 National Invitation Tournament.
Before Mangino joined the Academy, he was a head coach for nine seasons; first at Clark University in Massachusetts from 1991-96 and then at Ferrum College in Virginia from 1996-2000. At Clark, Mangino developed the Skills for Life program to help athletes prepare for their post-graduate careers.
Mangino worked as an assistant coach at George Washington from 1986-91, at Yale from 1984-86, and at Montclair State in 1983-84. He also helped George Washington to the NIT in 1990-91.
Mangino is a 1983 graduate of Montclair State, where he earned his bachelor's degree in physical education. He later earned his master's degree in human development from George Washington in 1996.
He was a three-year basketball letterwinner at Montclair State and helped the team to the 1981 regional championship. Mangino began his coaching career at Montclair as a graduate assistant in 1983-84.
Mangino has worked as a clinician at several major basketball camps, including the Boston Celtics rookie and free agent camp. He's also been active in community affairs throughout his career, including the Big Brother program.
Mangino and his wife, Ann, have two daughters, Chelsea and Grace. Chelsea is a former UVA student manager and current director of basketball operations at Liberty University under head coach and former UVA associate head coach Ritchie McKay.
