Missouri vs Gardner-Webb
Bryan Tibaldi is in his fourth season with the Mizzou Men's Basketball program. As the Director of Operations Tibaldi has a variety of responsibilities for Mizzou Basketball, including the organization and oversight of camps, team budget, academics, team travel, ticketing and recruiting.
A graduate of Michigan State University (2007), Tibaldi began his career at Mizzou as the Video Coordinator before being elevated to Director of Operations in 2013. As Video Coordinator, Tibaldi was tasked with breaking down film for opponent and self-scouting purposes. Tibaldi also played an integral part in game preparation and assisted with on-campus recruiting efforts and the visual presentation of the program.
"Bryan is a talented young coach and has great passion for Mizzou Basketball and the coaching profession," Anderson said. "I've really enjoyed getting to know Bryan days and am excited to retain him in the Director of Basketball Operations role. People around the department and our program have great respect for Bryan. His work ethic and attention to detail will serve this staff and our student-athletes well. I look forward to working with Bryan closely as we build our program."
Tibaldi brings NBA experience to the Mizzou staff, as he spent two years working for the Chicago Bulls before coming to Mizzou. With the Bulls, Tibaldi spent the 2009-2010 season working for the coaching staff as Assistant Video Coordinator. He then spent the 2010-2011 season working in the front office as a Basketball Operations Assistant. Working with the Director of College Scouting, Tibaldi helped to evaluate college prospects from around the country and manage the Bulls' scouting database. In both of his seasons with the Bulls, Tibaldi was fortunate to get the opportunity to be involved in the draft process, helping to coordinate and conduct pre-draft workouts.
"Bryan helped us to be the most prepared of our college careers," former Tiger guard Kim English said. "We had video breakdown of our games, our practices and our opponents, so every time we stepped on the court, we felt like we had an advantage."
Tibaldi has been around the sport of basketball for most of his life as he was a standout at Traverse City West Senior High School. He continued his career as a walk-on and two-year letterwinner as a guard at Michigan State University under Head Coach Tom Izzo.
After playing at MSU, Tibaldi remained part of the team, serving as a Graduate Assistant from 2007-2009. During this time, Tibaldi gained invaluable experience assisting the coaching staff with practice, on-campus recruiting and scouting. He gained a strong background in video as he played a large role in assisting the team's video coordinator in breaking down game and practice film for self and opponent scouting purposes. The Spartans went 58-16 over the two year span, including a 2008-2009 season that saw the Spartans win the Big Ten regular season title and finish the year as National Runner-Up. In the spring of 2009, Tibaldi earned his M.S. in Kinesiology, with a focus in Sports Administration, from the graduate program at Michigan State.
A native of Traverse City, Mich., Bryan has one sister (Katie) and is the son of Joe and Patti Tibaldi.
