Matt Langel

As of 5/5/22


Matt Langel was selected to serve as a court coach for the 2022 USA Basketball U18 Men’s National Team during training camp in Houston.


In the 2021-22 season, Langel became the winningest head coach Colgate men’s basketball history as he guided the program to its third Patriot League championship in four years.


Under Langel’s tutelage, Colgate has been a No. 14 seed in each of its last two NCAA Tournament appearances, the highest seed in tournament history for the program. 


Over the past four seasons, Colgate is 86-34 overall and 54-12 in the Patriot League. That stretch includes the program's only three 20-win seasons.


Colgate's overall win percentage since 2018 (.717%) is 19th in the country, and the win percentage against conference opponents during that stretch (.833%) is fourth-best nationally. 


Langel is a three-time Patriot League Coach of the Year (2018, 2019, 2020). He is also the 2019 NABC District 13 Coach of the Year and the 2019 ECAC Coach of the Year.


Since joining Colgate in 2011, the team’s overall record stands at 176-165.

Before his tenure at Colgate, Langel served as an assistant at Temple University (2006-2011). Langel worked under coach Fran Dunphy, who is the all-time winningest coach in Philadelphia Big 5 history.


Langel also spent two years as a member of Dunphy’s Penn staff in 2004-05 and 2005-06.


He was a 2000 graduate from Penn, during his career he helped lead Penn to two Ivy League titles and NCAA Tournament appearances.


He is a member of the 1,000-point club, and he is second all-time in Penn basketball history in three-pointers made in a game with eight, is eighth in three-pointers made in a season with 70, and fourth in career three-pointers made with 201.


Langel and his wife, Tara, have a daughter, Logan Anne, and two sons, Lucas and Jackson.
