Frank Marcinek, Head Coach/Assistant Director of Athletics

Frank Marcinek is in his 28th year as head coach of the Rive Hawks.  Marcinek is the winningest coach in the 114 year school history.  Prior to the start of the 2016-17 season, he had accumulated 385 total victories while on the sideline for SU.

During his tenure, Marcinek has guided 18 of his 27 teams to post season play. The 2015-16 season surely will go down as one of the finest in school history. This team won 24 games to break the school record for victories in a season and also qualified for the NCAA division 3 tournament.  The Crusaders hosted two NCAA tournament games during the 2016 NCAA playoffs.

Marcinek and his staff of Chad Bailey, Sam Moore, Mark Prusch and Aaron Ettinger have been selected Landmark Conference Coaching Staff of the Year during the 2008-09; 2014-15 and 2015-16 campaigns.

Frank also serves as an NCAA Division 3 Congressman for the National Association of Basketball Coaches.  In addition to his duties as a NABC Congressman, Marcinek is currently serving his second stint as a member of the NCAA Regional Advisory Committee, which oversees rankings and selection of teams for the NCAA Division 3 Tournament.

A 1981 graduate of Penn State, he received his Master's Degree from Ithaca College in 1987. Frank is married to Cindy Marcinek and they live in Shamokin, PA.  Both of Marcinek's sons, Frank, Jr. and Scott are Susquehanna graduates and both played for 4 years for SU.
