The BU Men have a new Head Coach for the 2012-2013 campaign.  Tommy Dempsey is a seasoned Division I coach and will be bringing a lot of success and experience to the BU Program.

Prior to joining BU, Dempsey coached seven seasons at Rider University where he racked up the third most total wins of any program in the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference.

Dempsey is a Scranton, Pennsylvania native.  He has a wife, Amy, and four children.

On the women’s side, Head Coach Nicole Scholl enters her fifth season at the helm of the Lady Bearcats.  This also marks her 14th year with the program.

Coach Scholl has led the Bearcats to the America East semifinals in three of the last four seasons.  Her knowledge and dedication have helped the Bearcats become a top threat in the conference.

Nicole Scholl played college ball at Moorehead State.
