Brian Gorman has been the head coach of the Becker College men’s basketball program since the 2007-2008 season.
Gorman’s tenure with the program has seen the Hawks soar to unprecedented heights. Under his leadership, Becker has posted a 63% winning percentage, reaching the NCAA Tournament three times and winning the NECC Championship in 2012 and 2017. Gorman has been recognized repeatedly by his peers in the NECC, as he has been voted Coach of the Year on four separate occasions (2010, 2011, 2012, 2017).
During the 2018-2019 year, his twelfth season at Becker, Gorman claimed his 200th career win as a head coach with an 82-66 victory over visting Mitchell College. Senior guard Kareem Davis became the all-time leading scorer in the history of Becker College (NCAA era), finishing his storied career with 1,876 career points and being voted All-NECC first team for the second straight season.
In just his first season with the program, Becker improved their win total by ten, and Gorman was recognized by the NAC as Coach of the Year. In his second year, the Hawks won 22 games on their way to winning the 2009 ECAC New England Championship. In 2010-11, Becker broke new ground as they posted a 24-5 record and earned the school’s first NCAA Tournament berth. That at-large selection was the first for an NECC program in men’s basketball. The Hawks justified their selection by upsetting the University of Scranton in the first round to give Becker College its first-ever NCAA Tournament victory in any sport. The 2011-12 team built on the previous season's success as it also posted a 24-5 record, winning the school’s first NECC Championship and claiming the automatic berth to return to the NCAA Championship Tournament. Becker upset William Patterson in the first round for their second NCAA Tournament win in as many years. In the 2016-17 season, the Hawks won their second NECC title, earning their third trip to the NCAA Tournament.
During Gorman’s tenure, the Hawks have produced eight 1000 point scorers, three NECC Players of the Year, one NAC Player of The Year, two NECC Rookies of The Year and 14 first-team All-Conference selections.
Prior to joining the Hawks, Gorman was part of John Calipari's basketball staff at UMass Amherst. During his time with the Minutemen, UMass went to five NCAA tournaments, highlighted by their 1996 Final Four appearance. Gorman then worked under Bruiser Flint for five seasons a UMass and continued under Flint at Drexel University in Philadelphia from 2001-2006.
