Dino Joseph Gaudio (born 1957) is the former head men's basketball coach at Wake Forest University and a current college basketball announcer. He previously served as the head coach at the United States Military Academy and Loyola College in Maryland.

Gaudio was named head coach of the Wake Forest Demon Deacons men's basketball team on August 8, 2007. He had served as an assistant to his predecessor, Skip Prosser, who died suddenly in July 2007.[1][2] Gaudio's association with Prosser began in 1981 when he served as an assistant coach at Central Catholic High School in Wheeling, West Virginia, while Prosser was head coach.

Biography[edit]

Education[edit]

Gaudio is a graduate of Ohio University (1981) and Xavier University (master's in Secondary Education, 1991).[3]

Wake Forest[edit]

Gaudio remained loyal to Prosser, his mentor and predecessor at Wake Forest. In the final days of his life, Prosser attended the games of three 5-star recruits in Las Vegas and Orlando. These recruits remained committed to Wake Forest and made up an eventually number three-ranked recruiting class for the 2008-2009 season, signed by Gaudio as a memory to Prosser.[4][5]

On April 7, 2010, Gaudio was fired as head coach at Wake Forest.[6]

Gaudio became an announcer for ESPN's college basketball coverage in 2011.
