Jeremy Currier begins his sixth season as head men's basketball coach at Pfeiffer University in 2015-16, after leading the team to a 16-12 record, a 10-win turnaround from the previous season. The improvement was the one of the largest turnarounds in the nation.
The Falcons defense was one of the best in the nation last winter, ranking No. 2 in opponent field-goal percentage (.381), No. 6 in blocked shots per game (5.2), No. 10 in total blocked shots (146), No. 15 in defensive rebounds per game (27.7), and No. 41 in opponents three point field goal percentage (.329).
Currier had previously served as assistant basketball coach at Pfeiffer University under Dave Davis, where he was rated the sixth best Division II assistant coach for recruiting success in 2009 by College Bound Hoops and the JUCO Recruiting Report. Currier helped develop the Falcons recruiting plan, budget expenditures, travel arrangements and coordinated game preparation and scouting. Pfeiffer finished as the highest scoring team in Division II at 103.1 points per game and was ranked third nationally in three-pointers per game (10.6) and steals per game (11.2), while ranking fifth in the country in three-point field goal percentage (42.3%).
Prior to Pfeiffer, Currier was the head coach at Daniel Webster College where the team of his own recruits won a record 18 games and a first ever invitation to the ECAC Tournament. Currier led the Eagles to their highest win total in 10 years.
Currier has coached 14 all-conference players, two of which have been conference players of the year, four have been selected to the all-region team, while one has also been named the conference freshmen of the year. He has had over 20 former players go on to play professional basketball.
Currier played his collegiate basketball at Endicott College (2000-04). Currier was the Commonwealth Coast Conference Player of the Year in 2003, finishing as the NCAA statistical leader (all divisions) in three-point field goal percentage (52%) in 2003 and was also a two-time All-Conference and All New England selection (2002, 2003), finishing with over 1,000 career points. In 2011, Currier was inducted into the Endicott College Hall of Fame.
After his playing career, Currier worked in the Boston Celtics front office from 2003-2005, and the Director of Player Development at Hoop Specialists from 2005-2007.
Currier earned his Bachelor of Science in Sports Management from Endicott College in 2004 and a Master of Science in Leadership from Pfeiffer University in 2011.
