For the first time in his two-plus year tenure as the head coach at Quinnipiac, Baker Dunleavy will have a new voice on the sideline beside him.

Quinnipiac has hired Dwayne Lee as a new assistant coach for the men’s basketball program, according to a report by HoopsDirt.

He replaces Anthony Goins, who is joining Brad Brownell’s staff as an assistant at Clemson. Goins spent the last two years with the Bobcats.

Lee will join associate head coach Tom Pecora, assistant coach Shaun Morris and director of basketball operations Ryan Harkins, who have all been present since Dunleavy took over following former head coach Tom Moore’s departure in 2017.

Dunleavy’s newest addition hails from Jersey City, N.J. as a product of legendary prep coach Bob Hurley and St. Anthony’s High School. Lee played his college ball at Saint Joseph’s, playing in two NCAA Tournaments.

After a few years playing professionally overseas and the ABA (semi-pro league in the U.S and Canada), Lee was a part of Wagner’s staff as a graduate manager for two years and then was an assistant coach with Fairleigh Dickinson and St. Bonaventure.

The newest Bobcat coach brings a wealth of knowledge of basketball in the northeast and A-10 experience.

Lee joins a Quinnipiac program which has been on the rise within the last few years. A MAAC Tournament quarterfinal round loss ended its 2019 hopes, though the future is bright. Lee will surely become a part of that with Dunleavy and the rest of the staff.
