Coaches Corner: Interview with Towson Men’s Basketball Coach Pat Skerry

On Friday WGMU continued its Coaches Corner segment with an interview of the 1st year head coach of Towson, Pat Skerry. Coach Skerry took over a Towson squad that was 0-18 in the Colonial Athletic Association last season, winning just 4 games overall. The Towson Tigers have started this season 0-6, but they have faced two nationally ranked teams in Kansas and Michigan. He candidly says that even though the talent level may not necessarily be there to compete this season, the program at Towson is defiantly on the rise.

Coach Skerry notes throughout the interview that with the eventual completion of the state-of-the-art Tiger Arena in 2013, Towson will have the finest facility in the conference.  Coach Skerry goes on to say that even with only one scholarship senior on the team,  that he is very optimistic about the future of the program  because of what he describes as “possibly one of the best recruiting classes in the mid majors” coming to Towson next season.
