Saint Rose names Perno head men's basketball coach
The College of Saint Rose has named Mike Perno has head men's basketball coach. Perno replaces Brian Beaury, who retired last year.
Perno is uniquely qualified for his new position. A former Golden Knights starter, Perno helped lead the team to a pair of NCAA tournament berths before graduating in 2000.
Five years later, he returned to Albany as an assistant on Beaury's staff. Perno has spent the last 13 seasons involved in every aspect of the program, including three stints as acting head coach when Beaury missed time for medical reasons.
