Quinnipiac extends Pecora through 2027-28

Quinnipiac Director of Athletics Greg Amodio has announced a contract extension for Men’s Basketball Head Coach Tom Pecora through the end of the 2027-28 season.

Pecora has led the Bobcats to a 19-6 start during his first season at the helm of the program. Quinnipiac (11-3 MAAC record) currently sits atop the league standings with just under a month left in regular season play.

“We’re thrilled to announce that Tom Pecora will continue to lead our men’s basketball program,” Quinnipiac Director of Athletics Greg Amodio said. “He is an excellent mentor to our student-athletes and a great ambassador for the University. Quinnipiac Basketball has experienced incredible success already under Tom’s guidance, and we’re excited about the future of the team as we continue to compete for league championships.”

“I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity and I’m prepared to lead Quinnipiac Men’s Basketball moving forward,” Head Coach Tom Pecora said. “I’d like to sincerely thank Quinnipiac University President Judy Olian and Director of Athletics Greg Amodio for their continued support. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Quinnipiac community, and I’m looking forward to the chance to build this team into a perennial MAAC contender.”

Pecora, a veteran with 14+ years of experience as a head coach at the Division I level, is currently in his seventh full season at Quinnipiac University. He assumed the role of Quinnipiac Men’s Basketball Head Coach on Thursday, April 13, 2023.

Prior to his time at QU, Pecora served as a Division I head coach at Hofstra for nine years (2001-2010) and at Fordham for five seasons (2010-15).

The Bobcats’ current 19-6 start to the 2023-24 season matches the program’s best start to a year since the 1965-66 campaign (the ’65-66 Quinnipiac squad started 21-4 overall). The first-place Bobcats won 10 consecutive games from Jan. 5 – Feb. 8. Pecora helped lead the Bobcats to a 7-0 record during January, the first perfect month in the program’s Division I history.
