Pecora, the 10th head coach in Hofstra men's basketball history is beginning his ninth season leading the Pride and his 16th overall with the program. Pecora has led the Pride to four 20-win seasons out of the last five. Honored twice as the regions Coach of the Year (2006 and 2009) by Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association, Pecora has led the Pride to the postseason NIT tournament on three occasions. Pecora, an Adelphi graduate who has not strayed far from home to lead the Pride, is currently fourth on the Hofstra coaching list with 136 wins entering the season, right at the heels of Frank Reilly, who recorded 146 victories from 1947 to 1955 and Paul Lynner, who had 152 wins from 1962 to 1972.
