Iona College is pleased to announce contract extensions for both its men’s and women’s basketball head coaches, Tim Cluess and Billi Godsey through the 2021-22 season.
“The Iona community and Gael Nation are proud to have Coach Cluess and Coach Godsey remain the leaders of the Iona basketball programs,” said President Joseph E. Nyre, Ph.D. “We are excited about the bright future ahead for the Gaels following another successful year.”
“Tim and Billi continue to lead our two programs the right way and their success within the MAAC and the New York Metropolitan Area speak for themselves,” said Vice President for Athletics Administration Rick Cole Jr. “Their commitment to Iona athletics’ mission of building champions both on and off the court is remarkable. I’m excited to work with them both as they position Iona College and our student-athletes for success.”
Coach Cluess led the men’s basketball program to a second straight MAAC Championship in early March to earn a fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament in his seven years at the helm. The Gaels have earned a postseason appearance in all seven of his years as the program has put together an overall record of 162-78 (.675).
