Hofstra Head Men’s Basketball Coach Joe Mihalich was named the National Association of Basketball Coaches District 10 Coach of the Year, it was announced by the organization.
Mihalich guided Hofstra to a school-record 27 wins this season and the Pride advanced to the National Invitation Tournament where they faced North Carolina State earlier this week.
During the 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, becoming the first Hofstra coach to earn that honor since the Pride joined the CAA in 2001-02. In addition, he was named the United States Basketball Writers Association District II Coach of the Year.
Mihalich also earned a pair of honors from College Insider recently as he was named a finalist for the 2019 Skip Prosser Man of the Year award and a finalist for the Hugh Durham Award, presented to the nation’s top mid-major coach.
