Braica takes over men's hoops at St. Francis College

Brooklyn Heights, NY (Sports Network) - St. Francis College has announced the hiring of Glenn Braica as men's head basketball coach.

Braica, who has spent the last six seasons as an assistant at St. John's under Norm Roberts, previously spent 15 years as an assistant at St. Francis and from 2000-04 as associate head coach under Ron Ganulin.

"This is a great day for St. Francis College basketball," said director of athletics Irma Garcia. "Glenn was a solid coach for us when he was here the first time. With Glenn calling the offense, the Terriers were in the top four in the conference almost every year. He knew how to win then, and now with six years in the Big East under his belt, he's coming back with incredible experience that will give our program a huge lift toward the upper echelon of the Northeast Conference."

Braica takes over for Brian Nash, who resigned earlier this month citing personal reasons after five years at the helm. The Terriers finished 11-18 last season and did not qualify for the Northeast Conference Tournament.

In the last seven years of Braica's previous tenure at St. Francis, the Terriers posted a 118-83 record, including an 88-42 mark in the NEC and captured two regular season titles.
