Kevin Bigelow completed his fifth season as head coach of the AMCAT women's basketball team in 2016-17. After two seasons of also serving as an Anna Maria admissions counselor, Bigelow was elevated to a full-time coach prior to the start of the fall 2014 semester. He now also serves as the department's Admissions Liason.
In 2014-15, the AMCATS posted a 10-15 overall record and a 5-6 league record to qualify for their first-ever Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) tournament as the seventh-seed. It marked the first time since the 2002-03 season that an Anna Maria women's basketball team advanced to the postseason.
Senior Trafficia Warburton was tabbed as the GNAC Defensive Player of the Year for the second-straight season. She was also named to the All-Conference First Team.
In his second season at the helm of the program, in 2013-14, Bigelow led the AMCATS to their most-winningest season in over a decade. The team surpassed the 10-win mark for just the second time since the 2001-02 season, and finished the campaign with a 11-14 record.
Prior to signing on as the women's basketball head coach, Bigelow was an assistant coach under Anna Maria head coach Shawn Conrad. Bigelow was responsible for all recruiting aspects for the men’s program along with film breakdown, fundraising and academic advising. The 2011-12 AMCATS squad, seeded 6th in the GNAC tournament, had a great run to the GNAC finals and earned an ECAC bid.
Before joining the AMC men's basketball taff, Bigelow held the same position at Worcester State University for two years and accumulated five years of coaching experience in the high school ranks.
"I am thrilled to lead this team and this program. This is a community that loves women's basketball, and I relish the opportunity to build upon that tradition,” said Bigelow. “I can think of no greater school to continue my coaching career and begin my head-coaching tenure than at my alma mater.”
Bigelow earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice from Anna Maria College. He resides in Worcester.
