The Ben Jobe Award is given annually to the top minority head coach in Division I. Stoudamire was one of 25 finalists after leading the Tigers to a 23-10 record including an 11-5 mark in the WCC, the most conference wins for Pacific since 1970-71.
Stoudamire played for the UA from 1991-95 before going seventh overall to the Toronto Raptors in the 1995 NBA Draft. He was later an assistant with the Wildcats under Sean Miller from 2013-15 before landing the Pacific job in 2016.
