Blair Estarfaa is in his second season as a member of the women's basketball coaching staff. He was promoted to assistant coach in June after serving as the team's Director of Basketball Operations during the 2019-20 season.
Estarfaa came to Buffalo after spending the previous two seasons as an assistant coach at Daemen College. The Wildcats had a magical season in 2018-19 as they compiled a 24-6 overall record, the most victories in the program's NCAA Division II era, while capturing the program's second ECC regular season title and earning them a berth in the NCAA Division II East Region Championships for the first time in program history. Estarfaa worked closely with redshirt sophomore Andrew Sischo who was named East Region Player of the Year after leading the team in scoring (20.9 ppg) and rebounding (10.1 rpg).

Prior to his time at Daemon, Estarfaa served as an assistant coach at Alfred University in 2016-17.

He is a graduate of SUNY Cortland and three-year member of the men's basketball team. He captained the 2015-16 team to a 21-8 record and a State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) title. He earned first team All-SUNYAC honors and second-team all-district honors as a senior after averaging a team-high 15.4 points. In his three seasons at Cortland he scored 969 career points in 80 games (12.1 points per game) and shot 40 percent from 3-point range (183-of-457). He earned his bachelor's degree in Exercise Science / Sport Studies from Cortland.

Estarfaa was a standout at Maryvale High School in Cheektowaga, N.Y. As a senior he averaged 25 points a game and collected fifth-team Class A all-state honors. He was also named second-team All-Western New York and ECIC III Player of the Year following his senior year.

"It is an honor to be joining such a talented group of student-athletes and coaches and it's a blessing to represent the city of Buffalo," said Estarfaa. "I look forward to the journey ahead. Go Bulls!"
