Leckie retires as St. Peter’s men’s basketball coach

Jersey City, NJ (Sports Network) – Saint Peter’s College men’s basketball
coach Bob Leckie announced Monday his retirement from the position after
having finished his sixth season with the team.

Taking over a squad that was 5-23 the season before his arrival, Leckie
coached the Peacocks in 174 games. He led the Peacocks to a 10-win season in
2002-03 followed by three straight winnings seasons to end his career.

“Bob has done an incredible job turning this program around,” Saint Peters
director of athletics Bill Stein said. “He is a great coach and an even better
person. Bob not only got the best out of his players on the court, but also in
the classroom as well.”

The final game of Leckie’s career was the 2006 MAAC Championship, in which the
Peacocks lost to Iona.

No timetable has been set for his replacement to be named.
