Quinnipiac parts ways with DeSantis

Hamden, CT (Sports Network) – Quinnipiac has decided to part ways with men’s
head basketball coach Joe DeSantis.

DeSantis just completed his 11th season at the school. The Bobcats went just
14-15 overall this season, but did post an 11-7 mark in Northeast Conference

“I want to thank Joe for his 11 years of service to the university,” said
director of athletics Jack McDonald. “He oversaw our men’s basketball team as
we moved from a Division II to a Division I program. We appreciate what he has
done for Quinnipiac during his tenure as head coach, and we wish him all the
best going forward.”

McDonald said that the school will retain a national search firm to assist in
the recruitment of a new head coach to lead the basketball program in its next
phase of development.
