Harry McShane is in his 11th season as an assistant coach following a successful stint as head coach at Wentworth Institute of Technology.
McShane spent eight years at Wentworth from the 1994-95 to the 2002-03 seasons. In his tenure as the Leopards’ head coach, he took a squad that won three games the year before he arrived and just two in his first season and quickly turned them into a force to be reckoned with in the Commonwealth Coast Conference. They went 19-8 in his second season to earn “Most Improved Team in New England” honors. WIT followed that up by going 20-8 in his third campaign, winning the CCC and reaching the NCAA tournament. His 1997-98 squad set a school record for wins in a season with a 22-7 record and an ECAC tournament berth. McShane coached three CoSIDA Academic All-Americans and two NABC All-Americans in his time at the Boston campus.
Prior to his stint at Wentworth, McShane served as an assistant along with coach Meehan at Salem State under Jim Todd, helping the Vikings to three NCAA appearances in that time. He also served as an assistant for three years at Framingham State College. His first coaching job came at Newton South High School under head coach Joe Killilea.
McShane is a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and has served on the ECAC and NCAA tournament selection committees.
McShane is a 1983 graduate of Northeastern University and a resident of Charlestown, Mass.
