On the heels of a 5–26 season for men’s basketball, Director of Athletics Walt Hameline announced major changes in the program’s leadership with the hiring of Dan Hurley as head coach, replacing Mike Deane.
In seven seasons with the Seahawks, Deane compiled an overall record of 95-114. In 26 years as a head coach, Deane has amassed a record of 437–332.
“We thank Mike for his contributions as head basketball coach at Wagner,” said Hameline. “I admire him greatly as a human being and for the knowledge, competitiveness, and passion he brought to the program. At the end of the day, I decided it was time make a change and go in a different direction.”
