Alex Kosicki, a native of Brooklyn, NY, took over the Lady Cougars last year and enters his 2nd season as the Head Women's Basketball Coach. Kosicki, the Men's and Women's Associate Head Tennis Coach at nearby Western New England University since 2008, is a 2008 graduate of Springfield College and four-year varsity athlete. Alex participated for two years at IMG Academy in Brandenton, Florida and has coached at numerous sports camps in the region. His extensive background in multi-sport coaching makes him one of the premier coaches in western Massachusetts. Alex brought a 2-17 team from the previous year, to a much improved 7-9 record in his first season as Head Coach. During the 2013-14 campaign, Alex assisted in all aspects of the program under former head coach Nicky DiMarzio.
From Former Head Coach Nicky DiMarzio:
"Alex is a great choice to take over this growing program after being part of a rebuilding season during 2013-14. He is bringing coaching and playing experience from the NCAA Division III level, energy, enthusiasm, and the willingness to continually learn new aspects of the game. His dedication to this program, day in and day out, along with recruiting experience, will help the program reach new heights. I am exciting for Alex to have this opporunity to continue what we started last year with these ladies who are working hard to build the program."
