Thomas O. Curle (1988-1997)
Tom Curle served as the head basketball coach at Alfred State for nine years. During his career at ASC he amassed a record of 167-89 and a .652 winning percentage. His 167 wins are the second most wins by any basketball coach in the history of the Pioneers.
In his nine years of coaching, his teams averaged 18.5 wins a season and had only one season where they won less than fifteen games. Curle led Alfred State to the NJCAA Nationals three times. In the 1993-94 season the Pioneers finished 5th in the nation.
Besides his coaching duties, Tom was active as a student-athlete advocate. He spent a significant amount of time guiding athletes toward their goals. There are many who completed their college degree due to his influence.
Tom's sense of humor lightened many days in the Athletic Department. He has the ability to come up with a joke in any situation.
Curle has been the head coach at Teikyo Post University in Connecticut since leaving ASC and has already collected the most wins by any coach in TPU history.
