Tony Salesi, Pitt's athletic trainer and team confidant, begins his 26th season as a member of the Panthers' basketball staff. He was appointed Coordinator for Athletic Training for Olympic Sports in 2005.

A 1980 University of Pittsburgh graduate, Salesi began his athletic training career at Frazier High School. He then served three years as a head trainer for the Keystone Rehabilitation Center in Indiana, Pa., working with the IUP football team. Salesi, who earned his Master's degree from Miami University (Ohio) in 1981, returned to his alma mater in August of 1986, when he was appointed a clinical instructor for the University of Pittsburgh sports medicine department and head trainer for the Panthers men's basketball, men's soccer and tennis teams.

In addition to his basketball responsibilities, Salesi serves as the Coordinator of Clinical Services for Olympics Sports. Born April 9, 1957, Salesi and his wife Kathleen (Pitt grad, MBA `85) have five children: Lauren Ashley (24), Andrew Louis (23), Anthony Alexander (21), Matthew Aaron (18) and Joseph William (13).
