Bobby Suarez is in his fourth season as the assistant video coordinator at Florida State under two-time ACC Coach of the Year Leonard Hamilton.
His responsibilities include preparing team and individual video edits, self-scouts, opponent video breakdowns, film exchange, scouting reports and recruiting videos.
Suarez is also an assistant director of the Leonard Hamilton Basketball Team Camp held annually during the summer.
Suarez served as a student manager/Intern at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, Fla., from 2009-2013. He was a member of the Eagles’ now famous Dunk City team that advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.
During that magical 2013 season, Florida Gulf Coast won the Atlantic Sun Tournament championship to earn the league’s automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. The Eagles defeated No. 2 seeded Georgetown and No. 7 seeded San Diego State, becoming the first No. 15 seed to advance to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.
Suarez’s responsibilities included on-court development, compiling video edits and assisting with on-campus recruiting. He was also the assistant director of the Andy Enfield Summer camp.
Suarez worked with Malik Beasley, a first round pick of the Denver Nuggets in the 2016 NBA Draft, during his record-setting freshman season at Florida State (2016).
Suarez worked with four all-conference players during his time at Florida Gulf Coast: Brett Comer (who finished his career ranked 24th on the all-time NCAA career assists list), Bernard Thompson (the 2013 Atlantic Sun Defensive Player of the Year), Chase Fieler (the all-time program leader for rebounds, blocked shots and field goals made) and Sherwood Brown (2013 All-America Honorable Mention selection and the 2013 Atlantic Sun Player of the Year).
In 2014, Suarez worked for Orlando Antigua (now the head coach at USF) and assisted with day to day operations of the Dominican Republic National team.
Suarez earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2012.
