MISENHEIMER, N.C. – On Saturday, October 2nd, Pfeiffer University head men’s basketball coach Jeremy Currier was inducted to his alma mater’s athletics hall of fame. Coach Currier, a 2004 graduate of Endicott College in Beverly, M.A., played all four years with the Gulls basketball team.

Jeremy Currier was a four-year letter winner with the Endicott men’s basketball program.  During his tenure as a player, Endicott posted a 75-35 record and reached four straight The Commonwealth Coast Conference Final Fours.  Currier also helped the Gulls earn a TCCC title and NCAA tournament berth during his senior campaign in 2004. 

A sharpshooter from behind the arc, Currier finished as the NCAA record holder for all divisions in three-point field goal percentage during the 2002-03 season en route to conference Co-Player of the Year accolades.  Currier was a two-time Division III All-New England honoree and was named to a pair of All-TCCC teams.  In addition to being selected to an All-ECAC New England team, Currier finished with over 1,100 career points. 

Upon graduating from Endicott, Currier spent two years working in the Boston Celtics front office.  His responsibilities included community service, public relations, game operations, ticket sales, season ticket holder relations, and special event management.   Later, Currier accepted an assistant position with the men’s basketball program at Daniel Webster College, inheriting a winless team in the process. 

In 2007, he was named head coach of the Eagles, making him the youngest head coach in the NCAA at age 25.  Currier led a young Daniel Webster team to the highest win total in a decade, breaking five school records in the process.  Under his leadership, the Eagles made consecutive postseason appearances for the first time in 16 years.

In 2008, Currier joined the staff at Pfeiffer University where he played a major role for a 2008-09 team that led the country in scoring with an average of 99.8 points per game.  While serving as the recruiting coordinator for the Falcons, he was ranked sixth in the nation among Division II assistant coaches by the 2008 College Bound Hoops Rankings.  In April of 2010, Currier was named head coach at Pfeiffer.
