Men’s Basketball: Conference rival Towson names former Tribe assistant head basketball coach
April 8, 2011
Former William and Mary assistant coach Pat Skerry has been named the head basketball coach of conference rival Towson.
A graduate of Tufts University, Skerry spent three seasons with the Tribe as an assistant to former head coach Rick Boyages from 2000 to 2003. Before coaching at the College, Skerry worked as an assistant for the CAA’s Northeastern.
When current head coach Tony Shaver took over for Boyages before the start of the 2003-2004 season, Skerry took an assistant position for the College of Charleston. During his tenure in Williamsburg, the College went 33-52 overall and 21-31 in the CAA, in which he will now be a head coach.
Next season Skerry will return to William and Mary Hall when his Tigers take on the Tribe.
“Playing in the nation’s top non-BCS conference, we will need to work hard and play with TU toughness, both key characteristics I have learned from all the coaches I worked with during my career,” Skerry said in a press release.
