MIAMI (FL) — The five finalists for the 2010 Red Auerbach College Coach of the Year Award were announced on Monday.

Three of the finalists, Josh Pastner (Memphis), Keith Dambrot (Akron) and Brad Greenberg (Radford), lead their teams to second place conference finishes during the regular season. Two of the finalists, Bruce Pearl (Tennessee) and Seth Greenberg (Virginia Tech) coached their teams to third place regular season finishes in the SEC and ACC respectively.

Bruce Pearl lead the Tennessee Vols to a 25-8 regular season record, punctuated by wins against #1 Kansas and #2 Kentucky, the first time since the 1976-77 season Tennessee has defeated two top-five teams in the same season. The Vols received a #6 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Seth Greenberg guided the Virginia Tech Hokies to their best record (23-8) under his tenure. Highlight wins included: North Carolina, Georgia Tech, and Wake Forest and out of conference opponents Iowa, Penn State and Georgia. The Hokies received a #1 seed to the NIT.

Josh Pastner, in his first year as head coach of the Memphis Tigers, directed the team with a depleted roster to a 23-9 overall record in Conference USA and a 2nd place finish. The Tigers garnered a #3 seed in the NIT.

Keith Dambrot lead the Akron Zips to a 24-10 record in the Middle American Conference, which was highlighted by 2nd place regular season conference finish and a run to the MAC title game. The Zips received a bid to the 2010 College Basketball Invitational (CBI).

Brad Greenberg, in his 3rd season at Radford, coached the Highlanders to a 19-12 overall record in the Big South. The season was highlighted by wins against league foe and conference champion Coastal Carolina and a season sweep of Big South NCAA tournament representative Winthrop.

The Red Auerbach Award is given annually to the nation’s top Jewish college coach, as voted on by the members of the Jewish Coaches Association (JCA). The winner will be presented with the award at the Final Four in Indianapolis.

In 2010 the Jewish Coaches Association named its college coach of the year award after Red Auerbach, the coaching legend who won 938 games (a record at his retirement) and nine National Basketball Association (NBA) championships as a coach. As general manager and team president of the Celtics, he won an additional seven NBA titles, for a grand total of 16 in a span of 29 years, making him one of the most successful team officials ever in the history of professional sports.
