Coach Soderberg is a class act.  I have met him several times and he was nothing but kind and generous to me. 

Gregory did Giannini play for Coach Warden?  Coach Warden was another class act. 

Yes, he did, as I said here:

He was a pretty big part of Bill Warden's total turnaround of what had been the perennial doormat of the CCIW.

Virginia Commonwealth's new head coach is Shaka Smart, Kenyon College class of '99.  One of his assistant coaches is Mike Rhoades, Lebanon Valley class of '94 and for ten years the head coach at Randolph-Macon.  VCU's director of basketball operations is Kyle Getter, who has worked at both Wabash and Hanover.  Go Rams!

Now that's a staff!

#10 Butler is coached by DePauw '99 grad Brad Stevens.   USF coach Stan Heath spent 2 years on the bench at Albion prior to stints at Michigan St., Kent St. and Arkansas.

Gregg Popovich coached at Pomona

Quote
During his time with the coaching staff of the U.S. Air Force Academy, Popovich attended the University of Denver and earned his Masters Degree in Physical Education and Sports Sciences. In 1979, he was named the head basketball coach of Pomona-Pitzer's men's team.

During his time as head coach at Pomona-Pitzer, Popovich became a disciple and eventually a close friend of the University of Kansas head coach Larry Brown. Popovich would eventually decide to take off the 1985-1986 season at Pomona-Pitzer to become a volunteer assistant at the University of Kansas, where he could study directly under Brown. Popovich returned to Pomona-Pitzer and resumed his duties as head coach the next season.

Also, one of his assistants at the Spurs, Mike Budenholzer, went to Pomona.  

Mike Dunlap, associate head coach at Oregon, was once head coach at California Lutheran.  He also has been an assistant with the  Nuggets.

Mike Rhoades' coach at Lebanon Valley, including the national championship team of 1994, was Pat Flannery who moved to his alma mater, D1 Bucknell, beginning with the 1994-95 season. * [BTW Mike graduated LVC in 1995.]
-----------------------------------------------------------
* Flannery's coach at Bucknell was Jim Valvano. Valvano himself earlier had coached at D3 Johns Hopkins.

Lonergan is now HC at GW.

And I didn't see any mention of Gregg Marshall, first of Winthrop and then Wichita State fame ... Randy-Mac 85. *B-boy stance*

Perhaps the most prominent link currently would be Wisconsin.  Former coach Dick Bennett coached UW-SP (though they were then NAIA; he was NAIA COY in 1984).  Bennett was succeeded in Madison by Bo Ryan, who won FOUR d3 national titles at UW-Platteville.
Bo Ryan played at Wilkes.

Binghamton head coach Tommy Dempsey attended Misericordia and graduated from Susquehanna.
