SMSU Basketball Camps

Head Coach Tom Webb

Tom Webb is in his third season as the head women's basketball coach at Southwest Minnesota State in 2018-19.

Webb, who was named to the position on May 10, 2016, is the eighth head coach in program history.

In just two short seasons, Webb has revamped the Mustang roster as he continues his goal to bring SMSU women’s basketball back to the top in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.

Following a 3-24 season his first year on the sidelines in 2016-17, SMSU improved in overall and conference victories last season, despite a roster of seven true freshman.

Webb begins the 2018-19 season with a career record of 99-168 in 10 seasons as a Division II head coach, including 8-45 at SMSU.  

Webb came to SMSU after spending eight seasons (2008-16) as the head coach at Division II Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma. He took over a program that had won just eight combined games, including three in conference play, during the two seasons prior to taking over. He finished with a record of 91-123 during his eight-year tenure with one appearance in the NCAA tournament.

During the 2014-15 campaign, Webb led Cameron to one of its best seasons in school history, earning an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. The Aggies finished with an overall record of 15-12, including a 12-4 record in the Lone Star Conference—the most LSC victories in team history. For his efforts, Webb was named the LSC Coach of the Year. In 2015-16, Cameron finished 15-11 overall and placed fifth in the LSC with a record of 9-7.

During his time on the sideline at Cameron, Webb coached four LSC newcomers of the year, one LSC defensive player of the year, one LSC player of the year and one Academic All-American.

Prior to Cameron, Webb spent four seasons as an assistant coach at NCAA Division I Eastern Washington University (2004-08). He served as recruiting coordinator and oversaw the post players, with four earning all-conference honors; while one went on to play professional basketball in Europe. He was promoted to associate head coach prior to the 2007-08 season. He helped recruit and coach two EWU players who later earned Big Sky Conference MVP honors during their careers.

Webb earned his first head coaching position at Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming, in 2000. He spent four seasons (2000-04) as head coach, leading the Trappers to a 94-32 overall record and a pair of conference titles. The team set a school record with 26 victories in back-to-back seasons, while his career .750 winning percentage is the highest in school history. He twice was named Wyoming Community College Athletic Conference (WCCAC) Coach of the Year.

The Trappers had success in the classroom as well, earning the 2003 National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA) academic championship with a team GPA of 3.56.

Webb began his coaching career as a student assistant women's basketball coach at SMSU in 1998-99, before serving as a graduate assistant for the Northern State University men's basketball program in 1999-2000.

Webb earned his bachelor's degree in elementary education from Southwest Minnesota State in 1998 and earned his master's degree in health and physical education from Northern State in 1999.

Tom and his wife, Gina, live in Marshall with their children, Jackson (8), Addie (5), and twins, Samantha and Sierra (3).
