Men’s Basketball Adds Alumni Micah Seaborn to Coaching Staff

Monmouth Basketball alumni Micah Seaborn is arranged to join Monmouth Men’s Basketball Coaching staff as Director of Player development.

Micah Seaborn, a former star from the 2014 to 2018 seasons on Monmouth Men’s basketball, recently announced with Head Coach King Rice to begin his career through the 2023-24 season as Director of Player development. Duties as the Director of Player Development include reporting directly to the Head Men’s Basketball Coach. Seaborn is responsible for preparing student-athletes for personal, academic, and athletic development success.

Not only is the addition of Seaborn a promising transition with his experience and success from his player career, but this shines light on the program for commitment to their former athletes and dedication to player development. Coach Rice said in a statement recently published on the Monmouth Athletics website “We’re super excited to have Micah back in our program,” said Rice. “His experience as a player and a few seasons ago when he was with us brings so much to our group and he’s awesome around our guys. He’s going to help our group a ton.”

The Fort Worth, Texas native arrived at Monmouth University in the summer of 2014 playing three incredible seasons for the Hawks. During his time, he made quite the impact winning two MAAC regular season titles and competing in two NIT’s. His personal achievements were the 2016 MAAC Rookie of the Year, MAAC All-Rookie Team and Third Team pick in 2016, and a First Team member in 2017. He then was named to the 2017 NABC All-District Second Team.

Seaborn was a member of the program’s most won season in 2015-16 and its longest winning streak in 2016-17. He finished his MU career with 1,144 points. In 2015-16, he and former MU basketball alum Justin Robinson collaborated for the top scoring combination in program history, with 1,167 points.
Seaborn still holds the highest free throw percentage of 84.7% in Monmouth history. He then moved onto the big leagues being a first-round choice of the Grand Rapids Drive, the Detroit Pistons’ NBA G-League franchise, and finally played professionally in the Georgia A League with Mega Basket.

Nobody can deny that Seaborn was a key factor in Monmouth’s revival during his three seasons. He was a talented attacking weapon who was unfazed by opponents or big moments. With Seaborn as Director of Player Development, it will impact the team by fostering growth and unity. Seaborn said in a statement recently published on the Monmouth Athletics website “It’s a blessing to be back with Coach Rice and the team and I won’t take this opportunity for granted.” … “I am really looking forward to helping these players on and off the court as much as I can. I feel like we have a good group of guys who want to show what we can do after last year, so I feel like we should all be extra motivated to strive for greatness every day and make big accomplishments this season.”

Monmouth opens the 2023-24 season at George Mason on November 6.
