Coach Pecora Ready for Rose Hill


Fordham’s new coach addresses alumni and boosters

Some people thought Tom Pecora was crazy for accepting the Fordham job. He was stepping into a program that had gone 2-26 and was the only Divison I basketball team without a conference win in the 2009-2010 season. But on Monday night, Coach Pecora did not sound like he had an ounce of regret.

Pecora addressed a crowd of more than 300 at the 2010-2011 Tip-Off Dinner. With members from the historic 1970-71 team in the audience, Pecora reminded everyone of the proud tradition that exists at Rose Hill. Listen to his speech below and try to not be excited for a new era of Fordham basketball.
