Seminoles play host to Flager on Monday at 7:00 p.m.
(updated July 2013)
Kyle Cregan is in his third season as the video coordinator for the Florida State men's basketball after helping the program win its first ever ACC Championship in 2012. He is responsible for managing the Seminoles' multi-million dollar video unit in the Florida State Basketball Training Center. The unit was designed specifically for the Seminole men's basketball program and allows the coaching staff to provide the best teaching and development information to each of the players in the program. The system allows for the instantaneous study of practice and game video which helps each player improve his skills and abilities on a daily basis. The extensive work done by the Florida State staff in the area of player development has seen nine Seminoles drafted by eight different NBA teams in the last 10 years.
Cregan spent his first two years on Leonard Hamilton's staff as a graduate manager. In his role as a graduate manager at Florida State, Cregan helped the Seminoles reach back to back NCAA tournaments including a Sweet 16 appearance in 2011. Cregan was instrumental in assisting the coaching staff in practice and individual workouts where he gained valuable on the court experience working with 2010 NBA draft picks Solomon Alabi and Ryan Reid, 2011 NBA lottery pick and two-time ACC Defensive Player of the Year Chris Singleton, and 2012 NBA draft pick Bernard James. Florida State has finished in the top three of the ACC standings and played in three consecutive NCAA Tournaments in Cregan's time on Hamilton's staff.
Before joining Hamilton's staff at Florida State in 2009, Cregan was an assistant men's basketball coach at Flagler College. He evaluated and recruited high school and junior college athletes throughout the United States. Cregan prepared and presented detailed scouting reports, organized and conducted individual workouts, and was responsible for all basketball operations and fundraising.
Cregan was a four-year letter winner for the Flagler College men's basketball team and helped the Saints advance to the NAIA Division II Sweet 16 in both 2004 and 2005. The Saints won both the Florida Sun Conference regular season and tournament championships during his freshman season. He then helped the Saints make the transition from an NAIA institution to an NCAA Division II school during his junior and senior seasons.
Cregan was the head boys' junior varsity basketball coach and assistant boys' varsity coach at River Ridge High School in New Port Richey, Fla., in 2008. He designed a year-long practice schedule that encompassed individual skill training as well as strength and speed training. Cregan was also responsible for monitoring his players' academic progress. His team finished with a 17-1 record.
While earning his master's degree at Florida State in 2011, Cregan taught `Theory and Practice of Basketball' in the Department of Sport Management. He was also an ESE teacher at River Ridge High School.
Cregan earned his bachelor's degree in business administration from Flagler College. He was a four-year letterwinner for men's basketball and a winner of a Florida's Bright Futures Scholarship. He received his master's degree in sport management from Florida State in 2011.
Cregan married the former Ashley Marie Zappacosta in August of 2012.
