Binghamton men’s basketball head coach Tommy Dempsey has solidified his staff for the 2016-17 season.

Entering his fourth season with the program, Bryan Goodman has been elevated to associate head coach. Former two-year coordinator of player development Chretien Lukusa has been promoted to assistant coach, joining fifth-year assistant Herb Courtney. Newcomer Pete Corasaniti has been hired in the player development role, rounding out Dempsey’s staff.

“I feel really good about our staff and am confident they will work hard and help us continue to move our basketball program forward day by day,” Dempsey said. “We are all excited about the future of this program.”

Goodman, who has 20 years of collegiate coaching experience, has played a pivotal role in recruiting BU’s young talent that sparked the team to its highest tournament seed in seven years last winter.

Lukusa, a former Bearcat captain and four-year standout, earned the promotion after serving two years as coordinator of player development.

Corasaniti comes to Binghamton directly from Syracuse University, where he served two years assisting Jim Boeheim and his coaching staff. A former head team manager for the Orange, Corasaniti worked as graduate assistant the last two years. His responsibilities included opponent scouting, film editing and breakdown, advanced analytical analysis, travel and recruiting and player development. Corasaniti was part of two Final Four teams at SU in 2013 and 2016.

He graduated from Syracuse with a bachelor’s degree in sport management in 2014 and earned his master’s degree in new media management from the Newhouse School of Public Communications in 2016.
