Pfeiffer University Vice President for Athletics/Athletic Director Bob Reasso has announced the hiring of Roy Dow as the new women’s basketball head coach. Dow comes to Pfeiffer from California Lutheran University where he served as the head coach for five years.
Dow is no stranger to success on the sidelines. In his most recent position, Dow led the Regals to four consecutive winning seasons, back-to-back conference tournament championships and NCAA appearances, and a conference regular season title. Last season, Dow’s squad went 23-5, tying a school record for most wins in a season. In his five years, Dow accumulated an 81-51 record and a .614 winning percentage. He also had 12 players named to the All-Conference team and two players named to the All-West Region.
Prior to his time at California Lutheran, Dow was the head coach of the men’s basketball team at California Institute of Technology for seven years. While there, he worked to improve the recruiting efforts and gained the program national media coverage. His efforts were rewarded with the critically acclaimed documentary Quantum Hoops which is a 2007 documentary that followed the team and won a Top 10 Audience Choice Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
