Mike Perno played on some top Golden Knights men’s basketball squads. Since then, as an assistant coach, he’s helped players on and off the court to become great student-athletes. Now, Perno will head the program.
A 2000 graduate of Saint Rose where he earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education, Perno is now in his 13th season overall after serving as an assistant coach throughout the previous 12 years, although he did handle the program’s day-to-day duties in 2006-07, 2014-15 and 2017-18, which former head coach Brian Beaury missed due to medical reasons. Perno has been serving as interim head coach this season. Beaury retired in October.
