Bob Hamilton was a member of Wittenberg University's 1960-61 College Division national championship team and the 1962-63 squad that was the national runner-up.

Playing for coaches Ray Mears and Eldon Miller at Wittenberg prepared him for a successful 10-year run as head coach at Wittenberg and four years at the U.S. Naval Academy.

His six Wittenberg teams had a combined 119-38 record, winning or sharing four Ohio Athletic Conference regular season championships and winning three tournament titles. He was named Division III national coach of the year by the NABC in 1975-76.

The year after Hamilton left to become head coach at Navy, Wittenberg won the 1976-77 Division III national championship.

At Navy, which had only one winning season in the 14 years before he was hired, Hamilton had four straight before leaving the coaching profession.
