Todd McGuinness was named the fourth Head Coach in the history Case Western Reserve University Men's Basketball Team on July 16, 2016. He is the owner of a 143-118 record over his ten seasons as a collegiate head coach, good for a .548 career winning percentage.
In his three seasons at CWRU, McGuinness' teams have shown a marked improvement, with the 2017-18 squad setting a program-record with six victories in University Athletic Association play, which included a program-record five-game UAA winning streak between January 21 and February 4. The team's four-win improvement over his opening season was aided by the development of T.J. Duckett, who became the third-player in program history to earn multiple All-UAA First Team selections over a career, and Ignas Masiulionis, who was just the fourth CWRU freshman to earn All-UAA honors since 2000-01. The Spartans led the UAA in rebounds and defensive rebounds per game during the season, while the team scored the seventh-most points (1,876) in program history in a single season, and registered the second-most three-pointers made (238).
McGuinness' first year as the CWRU Head Coach saw the team collect a win over sixth-ranked Rochester, the highest-ranked opponent defeated by the Spartans in four years. He coached Duckett to an All-UAA First Team selection, while guiding the team to tournament victories at the Doc Greene Tournament and the Sponaugle New Years Tournament. McGuinness holds a 20-30 record during his two campaigns with the Spartans.
During his three seasons with the team, McGuinness has mentored four different players to All-UAA honors, most recently Michael Hollis, who earned a spot on the second team following the 2018-19 season.
McGuinness, a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native, joined the Spartans after spending the previous seven years as the head coach of Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York. While at Hartwick, he compiled a 114-72 overall record, good for a .613 winning percentage and the third-most wins by a head coach in the program's history. His teams qualified for the NCAA Championships four times during his tenure and won three Empire 8 Championships, the first in the program's history. McGuinness was named the Empire 8 Coach of the Year during the 2011-12 campaign, and coached his players to two conference player of the year awards, two conference rookie of the year honors, and two Empire 8 Tournament Most Valuable Player awards.
McGuinness previously served a stint as the assistant coach of the CWRU varsity program and head coach of the junior varsity squad from 2006 through 2009. During his three seasons with the Spartans, he helped mentor University Athletic Association Rookie of the Year Kevin Herring in 2007-08 (just the second in the program's history), while the 2008-09 team recorded the most conference victories by a CWRU squad in nine seasons.
Prior to his time as an assistant at CWRU, McGuinness was an assistant coach at both Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York from 2004-06, and at Hartwick from 2003-04.
McGuinness played collegiately at Bethany College in Bethany, West Virginia, where he received his bachelor's degree in Physical Education in 2002. While at Bethany, he was a three-year starter and a two-year co-captain, leading the Bison to two Presidents' Athletic Conference Championships and an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2002.
