In 12 seasons as the Tigers' coach, Seaman has led the program to a 96-83 record and four conference championships. After capturing the 2001 America East championship and advancing to the NCAA semi-finals, he led the Tigers to three consecutive Colonial Athletic Association titles that earned Towson automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament.

Seaman has been selected as Coach of the Year in both the America East Conference (2001) and the CAA (2004, 2010). He was named as Towson University's Coach of the Year in 2001 and 2004.
Seaman, who will begin his 30th season as a college head coach in 2011, has compiled a career record of 260-156. His 260 wins rank sixth among active Division I coaches entering the 2011 season.
