|Title:||Assistant Men's Basketball Coach|
David Doino enters his eighth season as an assistant coach with the North Carolina Wesleyan men’s basketball program. A 2005 graduate of Virginia Wesleyan College with a degree in communications, Doino joined the Bishops in the summer of 2007 after serving three years as assistant coach at his alma mater. While on staff, he helped lead the Marlins to the 2006 D-III National Championship.
Prior to his coaching stint at VWC, Doino was a standout basketball player for the Marlins. He enjoyed a stellar collegiate career that saw him become a three-time All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference honoree. As a four-year starter, Doino led Virginia Wesleyan to a 70-36 record, including the second best record in program history at 20-8 in 2003-04. That same season saw the Marlins make an appearance in the ODAC Tournament Championship game.
At the completion of his career, Doino ranked tenth among VWC’s all-time leading scorers with 1,220 career points. Additionally, he ranked third in free throws made (332), fourth in rebounds (731), sixth in assists, and ninth in three-pointers made (104). Doino feels that his collegiate career has given him an additional edge with the players that he coaches.
“My playing experience has helped me tremendously,” he says. “Many players want to learn from coaches that have had success as a player, and I feel that I have the tools to relate to our athletes.”
Doino is a native of the Bronx, New York and lived there until his freshman year of high school. He then took his basketball talents to Scranton, Pennsylvania where he attended Abington Heights High School. Doino left Abington as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 1,843 points.
During his tenure with the Bishops, Doino helped lead Wesleyan to five straight winning seasons from 2008 to 2013, two USA South Regular Season Championships, one USA South Tournament title, an NCAA Tournament berth and the second best start in program history... an 8-0 mark at the beginning of the 2008-2009 season that resulted in a top-25 national ranking. His primary basketball duties include recruiting and developing post players.
Doino and his wife, Lauren, reside in Rocky Mount. They have one son, Anthony.
