Wheelock men's basketball coach John Preziosa resigned this week. He was the only head coach in the five-year history of the Wildcats men's program.

The Wildcats were 39-74 under his tenure, 38-50 after going 1-24 the first season.

"I'll miss the relationships I developed with the opposing coaches, especially the guys in our league," Preziosa said. "Although the timing of my departure is unfortunate, I look forward to spending some time watching my sons play this winter. I appreciate the efforts of all my players, and former assistant coaches that worked so hard to make us a respectable program over the past five years, despite our limited resources."

Diana Cutaia, Wheelock's athletic director and former head women's basketball coach at Curry, is the interim head coach. Assistants Mark Fogel and Brian Tobin are no longer with the program.
