Coach Mike Beccaria has been coaching with the Niagara College Knights for over 15 years. Beccaria spent eight and a half years as the first assistant coach for Ralph Nero with the Knights' Men's Basketball Program. Beccaria then served as the Head Coach of the Men's Program for three and a half seasons. Since 2010 Beccaria served as an assistant coach for Steve Atkin with the Knights Men's Basketball Program. Beccaria was then named Head Coach of the Women's Basketball Program in May of 2013.

During his 15 years with the Niagara College Men's Basketball Program, Beccaria has captured two OCAA Bronzes medals, including the most recent in 2009.

The late, great UCLA Coach John Wooden said it best, "Success can be defined as doing your best, to become the best player you can be." I believe this applies to all aspects of our personhood as well. Do your best to become the best student you can be, the best teammate you can be, the best family member you can be, and most importantly the best person you can be. Honesty, hard work, and integrity go a long way in making this happen.
