Cory Macchioni enters his first season as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Rhode Island College. Macchioni joins the Anchormen after spending last year as the Director of Basketball Operations at Canisius. The energetic young coach also served as Vice President for Basketball Operations for the Providence Sky Chiefs of the American Basketball Association in 2014-15.


“I am excited to have Cory join our staff.” Byrnes said. “Cory worked under Jim Baron as a basketball manager at University Rhode Island and was head of basketball operations at Canisius for two seasons, so he is more than qualified to assist us in every aspect of running a college basketball program.”



“I am excited to work with an ambitious staff that pushes and challenges their players every day,” Macchioni said. “I am also thrilled to continue my career in my home state in front of my family and friends and look forward to helping RIC basketball get back to the NCAA tournament.” 


 At Canisius, Macchioni was responsible for handling the team’s day-to-day operations and served as the director for the Jim Baron Summer Basketball Camps.  With the Sky Chiefs, Macchioni helped scheduled practices, team travel and team payroll. He helped guide the Sky Chiefs to a divisional and regional championship in the team’s first year in the American Basketball Association.


Macchioni is single and resides in Johnston.
