Adam Cohen enters his second season as a member of the Rice Basketball coach staff in 2013.
In his first season, his impact with mentoring perimeter players as well as recruiting has already become evident. In the course of the 2012-13 campaign, Cohen worked to bring in a top recruiting class that includes signees from both Arizona and California, where he has spent the bulk of his coaching career.
Prior to joining the Rice staff, Cohen received increased responsibilities each of the previous three seasons while on the basketball staff at Southern Cal.
Cohen joined the USC staff in 2009 and after one season serving as the program's video coordinator was promoted to Video Coordinator/Director of Scouting for the 2010-11 season. He was elevated to Director of Basketball Operations prior to the 2011-12 campaign.
During his final season at USC, Cohen was responsible in assisting in scouting preparation, film exchange and breakdown and with his promotion to Director of Basketball Operations had added responsibilities including the oversight of USC basketball camps as well as serving as a liaison with the compliance program and working closely with student-athletes in the matter of academic progress.
In March and April of 2009, Cohen assumed an interim position with the USC coaching staff in which he took on recruiting responsibilities as well as player development workouts.
Cohen also serves on the board of directors for Rising Coaches Elite, which is an organization created for college coaches by college coaches which offers collaborative assistance, networking and avenues for career growth.
The 2008 graduate of Arizona served as a student manager/assistant video coordinator for three years under Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson at UA. During that time, Cohen worked with six future NBA players and aided the Wildcats en route to 59 wins and three NCAA Tournament appearances.
After receiving his bachelor's degree in political science, Cohen was a graduate assistant at New Orleans during the 2008-09 season. At UNO, he served under second-year head coach Joe Pasternack, who had previously coached under Ben Braun at Cal from 2000-07.
Cohen has worked numerous summer basketball camps including Five Star, Arizona, Buffalo and USC. He also ran a camp in Chengdu, China during the summer of 2007 for Nike Basketball.
Cohen grew up in Buffalo, N.Y., and attended Williamsville North High where he played basketball for four seasons, serving as team captain his senior year.
