Todd Anthony Bozeman (born December 5, 1963) is an American college basketball coach who is currently an assistant coach for Rhode Island, where he also had a collegiate playing career. He was the head men's basketball coach at Morgan State University from 2006 to 2019.
Bozeman previously served as head coach at University of California, Berkeley from 1993 to 1996. He took over as interim coach in February 1993 when Lou Campanelli was fired with 10 games to go in the season. He led the Golden Bears to an upset of two-time defending national champion Duke in the second round of the 1993 tourney, becoming the youngest coach (29 years old) ever to take a team to the "Sweet Sixteen". Following the season, Bozeman was given the coaching job on a permanent basis. He led the Golden Bears to two more NCAA tournaments.
Bozeman was forced to resign in August 1996, just over two months before the start of the 1996–97 season. He admitted paying $30,000 over two years to the parents of Golden Bears recruit Jelani Gardner so they could drive from their home in Mendocino to see him play. When Gardner's playing time dwindled, his parents turned Bozeman in to the NCAA and Gardner eventually transferred to Pepperdine.He had also been the subject of a sexual harassment complaint; just before the announcement he had been ordered to stay away from a former Cal student who had accused him of making lewd phone calls and threatening her.
As a result of a subsequent investigation, Cal had to forfeit the entire 1994–95 season and all but two games of the 1995–96 season. The school also vacated its appearance in the 1996 NCAA Tournament, and gave up a total of four scholarships from 1998 to 2000. The NCAA imposed an eight-year "show-cause" order on Bozeman. This meant that until 2005, no NCAA member school could hire Bozeman unless it either agreed to impose sanctions on him or convinced the NCAA that he had served his punishment. The NCAA came down particularly hard on Bozeman because he'd lied to school and NCAA officials about his role in making the payments. He only came clean about the payments a week before the NCAA hearing when it became apparent that close friends would be implicated. As severe as these penalties were, the NCAA found the violations egregious enough that it would have at least considered imposing even more severe sanctions had Bozeman still been employed at Cal.
Since most schools will not even consider hiring a coach with an outstanding "show-cause" on his record, Bozeman was effectively blackballed from the college ranks for eight years. He was also hampered by rumors that he had deliberately undermined Campanelli,even though the National Association of Basketball Coaches cleared him of any wrongdoing in the events that led to Campanelli's ouster.
Bozeman spent four years as an NBA assistant and scout for the Vancouver Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors, and later working as representative for Pfizer pharmaceuticals and coaching AAU basketball in the Washington D.C. area. "I went from coaching a Pac-10 team to coaching 9-and-under, and having a parent tell me how to coach the team," he told Newsday.
Bozeman returned to the collegiate ranks with Morgan State in 2006, becoming the first coach to return to Division I after being handed a show-cause. It had long been extremely difficult for coaches slapped with a show-cause to get back into the collegiate ranks even after the penalty expires, since many athletic directors and administrators looked askance at hiring anyone with such a serious penalty on his record.
Morgan State was 4–26 the year before Bozeman arrived, but he quickly rebuilt the program and led it to new heights, making the NIT in 2008 and the school's only NCAA appearances to date in 2009 and 2010. He was a three-time MEAC conference coach of the year.In 2009 he was named Hugh Durham National Coach of the Year, which is awarded to the country’s most outstanding mid-major basketball coach.
On March 20, 2019, Bozeman's contract was not renewed, ending his tenure at Morgan State after 13 seasons.
