A MESSAGE FROM THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
Dear Friar Supporter,
It is an exciting time in Friar basketball history as we welcome the arrival of National Coach of the Year, Keno Davis. Coach Davis brings to Providence a passionate and aggressive coaching style that will make everyone want to be a part of the action at the Dunkin' Donuts Center this year. With your support, Friar basketball is once again on the path to national prominence.
In this brochure you will see the tangible enhancements that have been made to our facilities as a result of fundraising dollars. Our recent improvements include the Concannon Fitness Center which houses our brand new state-of-the-art varsity weight room and the Canavan Sports Medicine Center which features the most innovative equipment to rehabilitate and condition our student-athletes. I also encourage all of you to return to Alumni Hall to take a walk through the Joe Calabria Hallway of Champions. The new hallway has been completely refurbished with interactive flat screen televisions and photographic timelines to showcase the storied history and tradition of Friar basketball.
In addition to our on-campus renovations, we are also proud to unveil the recently completed $80-million dollar renovation to the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Among many new additions, the Dunk' will now feature video scoreboards, brand new seats and renovated concession areas for our fans. As a result of these efforts, Providence College and the Dunkin' Donuts Center have been selected to host the first and second rounds of the 2010 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.
With these improvements, a great young coach, and the challenge of playing in the most competitive conference in the country, we must raise additional dollars through our seat licensing program. As you will read in this brochure, seat licensing prices have been increased and added to several sections of the Dunkin' Donuts Center.
We are committed to creating a successful and respected program that all of our alumni and friends can be proud of and your support is critical for us to achieve our goals.
As Athletic Director and father of a current PC student, I am grateful for the strength of the Friar family and I look forward to many successful seasons and special moments that we will share together.
Robert G. Driscoll Jr.
Director of Athletics
