PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. – Plattsburgh State head men's basketball coach and associate athletic director Tom Curle, the winningest coach in program history at 292-152 overall, has announced his retirement after 16 years at the helm of the team, as announced Thursday by the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation. Curle has accepted the Director of Athletics job at William Peace University. Plattsburgh State experienced unprecedented success under Curle's direction, winning five State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) titles and making nine appearances in the NCAA Division III Tournament. The Cardinals reached the round of 16 at the NCAA Tournament on three occasions under Curle, including most recently in 2017-18. "It has been an honor to coach at my alma for the past 16 years," Curle said. "The relationships established with former players, alumni, colleagues and community members will always be cherished. I will remain a loyal Cardinal, and those friendships will endure. My time at Plattsburgh State has me well-prepared to meet the challenges I will face as the Athletic Director at William Peace University."
