The program's greatest team in recent memory lost NCAA All-Americans Sam Mattis and Tommy Awad — as well as other star athletes — but perhaps the most notable loss came from the coaching staff that vaulted the team up to its relative success on the Ivy League and national stages in 2016.
Penn men’s basketball unveiled their 2016-17 schedule Monday, and, much like the team, it will look quite a bit different than in past years.
The 27-game schedule features 13 games at the Palestra, including the standard seven versus Ivy opponents.
As the opening credits appear to the tune of the music score, Ray Priore is readying for his first season as head coach of the Penn football team, his 29th year as part of the staff.
After a disappointing 13-13 finish to the season last season, head coach Kerry Carr has decided to make an offseason splash that she hopes will set Penn Volleyball up for future success.
Newest assistant coach Scott Schweihofer joins Carr’s staff in the hopes of bringing the Ivy title back to Philadelphia for the first time since 2010.
After spending the last two years at George Mason University as the team’s top assistant and recruiting coordinator, Schweihofer comes to Penn after helping the Patriots to their best single-season win total in six years.
The preseason hype surrounding Penn football is unreal – 13 returning starters from a championship team will do that.
Penn basketball hasn’t sent a player to the NBA since 2000.
That player was none other than Ira Bowman, who still frequents the Palestra as assistant coach to the Quakers.
