MBB vs. NW Ohio (11-8-15)

Purdue men's basketball defeated Northwestern Ohio, 92-43, on Nov. 8, 2015.

Elliot Bloom is in his ninth year as director of basketball operations at Purdue after making the transition from his former position in the athletics communications department (formerly sports information). He is in his 16th year overall as a member of the Purdue athletic department, spending seven years in a sports information role.

In his current role, Bloom serves as the program's point person for scheduling and team travel, while also assisting in recruiting efforts and coordinating the team's weekly schedule. He also oversees Purdue's team of undergraduate student managers.

Bloom was the key point of contact for the Boilermakers' trips to Australia in 2008, Italy in 2012 and Spain in 2016. He will also handle the logistics for Purdue's trip to Chinese Taipei in August 2017 as part of the World University Games.

Bloom was the Boilermakers' communications contact from 2001-08, as well as the primary contact for men's and women's golf (2001-06), secondary contact for football (2001-06) and director of new media (2006-08).

Prior to returning to his alma mater in 2001, Bloom worked in the sports information office at Kansas for the 1999-00 season and Duke during the 2000-01 campaign.

In his athletics communications experience, Bloom worked with Hall of Fame coaches Gene Keady, Mike Krzyzewski and Roy Williams, as well as current Boilermaker head coach Matt Painter.

Bloom graduated from Purdue in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in liberal arts. He and his wife, Monica, have a daughter, Lucy, and a son, Charlie.
