Hofstra University Head Men’s Basketball Coach Joe Mihalich has been named a finalist for the 2019 Skip Prosser Man of the Year award, it was announced today by College Insider.
Named after the late Skip Prosser, who died suddenly in 2007 while the head coach at Wake Forest, the award is presented annually to those who not only achieve success on the basketball court but who also display moral integrity off of it as well.
Mihalich has guided Hofstra to a school-record 27 wins this season and the Pride has already earned a berth in the National Invitation Tournament.
During this magical season, Mihalich led the Pride to the first-ever regular season Colonial Athletic Association crown in program history and Hofstra had a spectacular 16-game win streak along the way. He was named the CAA Coach of the Year for his efforts last week, becoming the first Hofstra coach to earn that honor since the Pride joined the CAA in 2001-02. In addition, earlier this week he was named the United States Basketball Writers Association District II Coach of the Year.
The recipient of the 2019 Skip Prosser award will be announced on April 5 at the College Insider Awards Event, in Minneapolis, site of the 2019 NCAA Division I Basketball Championship.
