Carberry, who starred at New Haven's Hillhouse High School before a very successful collegiate and professional career, is in his second year as a member James Jones' staff in 2018-19.

Carberry came to Yale after spending the 2016-17 season at LIU Brooklyn where he helped the Blackbirds post a 20-12 record and finish second in the Northeast Conference.

Prior to LIU, Carberry spent two years as an assistant at Central Connecticut, serving under legendary head coach Howie Dickenman. He also has experience at New Haven and Southern Connecticut. At UNH, he worked for former Yale assistant Ted Hotaling, and in 2012-13 helped the Chargers reach the NCAA postseason for the first time in nine years. New Haven’s 16-6 conference record and third-place regular-season finish were both the best for the team since joining the Northeast-10.

Carberry moved to New Haven in 2010-11 after spending three seasons as the top assistant coach at Southern Connecticut.

After a standout career at the University of Vermont, Carberry spent five years in professional basketball leagues in the United States and Europe, including the NBA Development League.

At Vermont, Carberry ranks 13th on the all-time scoring list with 1,235 points and ranked in the top 10 in games played, field goals, assists, steals and blocked shots at the conclusion of his career. Ironically, Jones’ first victory at Yale came over Carberry’s UVM team in 1999.

Carberry was a finalist in the National Slam Dunk contest at the Final Four in Indianapolis in 2000 and was awarded the 2000 New England Division I Unsung Hero Award by the New England Basketball Coaches Association.

Carberry earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in sociology from UVM in 2000. He received his Master’s Degree in sports industries management from the University of New Haven. He and his wife, Anna DuBose Carberry, reside in Hamden with their son Tobe, Jr.
