Congratulations are in order for LIU Brooklyn men’s head basketball coach Jack Perri for being named the 2013 Joe B. Hall National Coach of the Year award winner which goes to the nation’s top first-year Division I head coach in college basketball.

Perri beat out a group which consisted of Wagner’s Bashir Mason, Mount St. Mary’s Jamion Christian, FIU’s Richard Pitino and UConn’s Kevin Ollie among others.

Perri finished 20-14 and 12-6 in the Northeast Conference in his first season as head coach after spending the previous seven seasons at the assistant coach and then the associate head coach under previous LIU head coach Jim Ferry. He guided LIU to their third straight NEC tournament championship as well as their third straight NCAA tournament appearance.

Perri was given at the CollegeInsider.com awards banquet in Atlanta, Georgia where the 2013 NCAA Men’s Final Four is being held.

Here is further information on Perri’s award from LIU Brooklyn Athletics.

Congratulations to Jack Perri on this well earned and well deserved honor.
