Bob Zuffeleto initially made his mark as a college basketball coach posting winning records at both Boston College (1971-1977) and Marshall (1979-1983).

Zuffeleto moved to the NBA in 1983 serving three seasons as an assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors. He spent one season with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1989-1990 before joining the Dallas Mavericks in 1990 where he spent three years.

In 1994 he moved to the Toronto Raptors where he was Director of Scouting, managing the club's scouting network while responsible for evaluating both professional and college talent. In 1998 he was promoted to Director of Basketball Operations for the Raptors and in 2001 was named Assistant General Manager.

After two seasons in the role, Zuffaleto chose to return to scouting so he could also spend more time with his family. He is still with Toronto.

He is also a member of two Hall of Fames. In 2000 his high school, Torrington High School, selected him for their Athletic Hall of Fame and a year later Central Connecticut State University named Zuffaleto to their Athletic Hall of Fame.
