“It is with great excitement and energy that we add Mike McSloy to our coaching staff and to the Bullets family,” stated Dunne. “I had the pleasure of working with Mike for a year at Vassar College and was impressed with not only the job he did as our assistant coach, but more importantly who he was as a person. Mike is a great teacher of the game, relentless recruiter, and strong relationship builder. His experiences with NESCAC, Liberty League, and the UAA will be invaluable to our student-athletes, athletics department and institution as we work to build on the rich basketball tradition at Gettysburg and build a program of unparalleled quality in the region and nationally. Mike is a great fit for our program’s culture and the Gettysburg community.”
“I am extremely grateful to be named the next assistant men’s basketball coach at Gettysburg College.” said McSloy. “I am excited to join an athletic department with such deep history of success. The opportunity to reunite with Coach Dunne is special and I cannot wait to get started.”
