Strength & Conditioning Coordinator

Experience:
1st Year


Todor Pandov (pronounced Tuh-Door Pan-dov) was named the strength and conditioning coordinator for the Tulsa men's basketball program in April 2014.

Pandov, a native of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, carries 10 seasons of assisting at the collegiate level and four years of NCAA Division I playing experience.

Pandov has been a key part of several postseason and championship teams during his career. As a player, he was a member of three Sun Belt Conference regular-season championship squads as the Hilltoppers won three Sun Belt postseason titles to earn trips to the NCAA Tournament. After scoring 12 points and grabbing five rebounds in 23 minutes at top-ranked Arizona in the 2002-03 season opener, Pandov went down with a season-ending knee injury.

It was actually that injury that fueled Pandov's passion for strength and conditioning.

Pandov has helped teams earn NCAA berths at each stop of his professional career. While assisting at Texas, the club advanced to the Elite Eight, and teams at Miami and Western Kentucky each made the second round of the Big Dance. While at Missouri, the Tigers reached the NCAA Tournament twice.

He actually spent two stints with Haith at Miami. Pandov served as a graduate assistant on the Hurricanes' 2007-08 NCAA Tournament team. He also has familiarity with the region, volunteering as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Texas in 2005-06.

Prior to his time in coaching, Pandov played professionally in 2004-05 for Eiffel Towers in Holland, earning all-star honors.

Pandov earned his bachelor's degree from Western Kentucky in 2003. He and his wife, Kimberly, have two sons: Mason and Jaden.
