Coaching Staff

Ken Broomer
Assistant Coach

Ken Broomer returned to the bench for the Red Devils at the start of the 2014-15 season. Having been an assistant for the 2008-2009 campaign, he spent five seasons as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Bloomsburg University.

Over that span, he coached five All-PSAC East honorees including the 2012 PSAC East Player of the Year and the conference’s first PSAC East Defensive Player of the Year. Bloomsburg finished the 2010-2011 season as Conference Champions and reached the Conference playoffs three years in a row, which had not been accomplished in over a decade.

Other coaching stops include four years as an assistant at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia, as well as one season as an assistant for Saint Mary’s College of Maryland Women’s Basketball team.

Broomer is a retired Naval Officer currently pursuing a Doctorate in Business Administration. He has a master’s degree from the Naval Post Graduate School as well as an Executive MBA Certificate from Tulane University. He obtained his undergraduate degree from Virginia Tech, and currently teaches graduate and undergraduate logistics courses at Mount St. Mary’s University.

 

Derek Spanellis
Assistant Coach

Spanellis, a 2016 graduate of Dickinson with a degree in Psychology and served as a student-assistant coach with the Red Devils. While in Carlisle he worked with the staff in day-to-day operations including film breakdown, scouting, contributions to the offseason lifting program, as well as calculating and interpreting analytics. Over the course of Spanellis' three years on staff, the Red Devils made the Centennial Conference Tournament every year and won the conference title in 2014-15 while also reaching the semi-finals in 2015-16. The 2014-15 Dickinson squad reached the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 and featured Division III National Player of the Year, Gerry Wixted.

Spanellis returns to Carlisle, PA after spending the previous two seasons as an assistant coach at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. During the 2021-2022 season, the Cardinals won their second NESCAC title in school history while advancing to the NCAA 2nd Round with a 25-4 record. Spanellis played a large role in the development of 1st team All-American and NESCAC Player of the Year Sam Peek and the recognition of head coach Joe Reilly, as both the NESCAC and Regional Coach of the Year. Spanellis recruited first-year starter Nicky Johnson and aided in the growth of 2nd Team All-NESCAC performer Jordan James.

Previous to his time at Wesleyan, Spanellis spent two years with the men's basketball program at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. At Pratt, Spanellis served as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator under former Cardinals' assistant Max Sass. Spanellis' first season on the Pratt sidelines saw on-court improvement, as the Cannoneers finished with a 10-10 record, following a 7-15 record in the prior season. Spanellis played an integral role in player development, including his work with then-freshman Griffin Levine, who in 2018-19 averaged 20.7 points per game (first in the ACAA) and was named the conference's Rookie of the Year and First Team All-ACAA selection. As recruiting coordinator, Spanellis helped to bring in a landmark class in 2019, which contributed heavily to a 2019-20 campaign that ended with a 15-9 record. This stands in the Pratt record books as the first season over .500 and the most wins since 1978-79.
