Former Temple and Hampton head coach Joe DiPietro has been hired as an assistant coach at Drexel.
DiPietro spent five seasons as head coach at Temple and was at the helm of the program when it was disbanded in 2013. He spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons as head coach at Hampton and also has been head coach at La Salle.
During his tenure at Hampton, the Pirates won forty-two games before DiPietro surprisingly resigned earlier this offseason. His Temple squad increased its win total in each of his five years as Owls head coach, culminating in a thirty-two win season that ultimately was the program's last.
DiPietro and former Hofstra Hall of Fame player Stacy Jones will round out head coach Carl Taylor's staff as the Dragons seek to improve on a 2016 campaign that saw them post a 20-35 record with a winless 0-19 mark in conference play.
