Steve Fagan was named Felician's head women's basketball coach in September 2008. After a rebuilding year, he posted three consecutive winning seasons -- the first time that had happened in program history.
In 2011-12, Fagan guided the Golden Falcons to the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference North Division regular-season title, another program first. For his efforts, he was named the CACC Coach of the Year. Fagan and Felician have reached the CACC quarterfinals on three occasions.
Community service has been a hallmark of Fagan's Felician teams. Every season since his arrival, the Golden Falcons have acted as chaperones at the Rutherford Ragamuffin Parade and held a "Shoot for Hunger" holiday food drive at a November or December home game. More recently, Felician team members and coaches have volunteered at the Tunnel 2 Towers 5K Walk and Run, a fundraiser for 9/11 first responders.
Fagan came to Felician after one season as the head coach at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. From 2002-07, he was the head coach and assistant director of athletics at Globe Institute of Technology. He posted an 89-43 record in five seasons at Globe, guiding the Knights to four NJCAA Division 1 regional championship games.
Fagan began his coaching career at St. Joseph by-the-Sea High School in Staten Island, N.Y. - his alma mater – while also teaching physical education for three years. In 1996, he became the lead assistant at Division-I St. Francis College of Brooklyn.
Fagan served as the interim head coach of the Terriers for the 1999-2000 campaign. He went on to work for the basketball instruction organization The Hoop Group for two years.
Fagan played collegiately at Brooklyn College and Pace University before receiving his bachelor of arts degree in mass media/communications from Pace in 1993. As a junior, he set Pace's single-season assist record with 148.
Fagan is also the coordinator of internal operations for the athletics department, and serves on the Felician Athletics Hall of Fame Committee. He resides in Howell with his wife, Larissa, and four children.
