Merchant Marine Head Men's Basketball Coach Danny Nee has announced the resignation of assistant coach Pete Lipka. Lipka, who has served as an assistant coach for the Mariners since 2008, recently accepted an assistant position at LIU Post.
"We would like to thank Pete for all of his hard work over the last five years and everything he has done for our program," said Nee. "We will miss him here at the Academy but wish him nothing but the best of luck as he moves forward."
USMMA compiled a 79-54 record during Lipka's tenure and captured the 2010 Landmark Conference Championship. In that same season, he was on the staff that was selected the Landmark Conference Coaching Staff of the Year and led Merchant Marine to its first NCAA Tournament victory in seven years.
