David Foley embarks on his second season as Head Coach of the Ladies basketball team for the 2017-18 season.

In his first season at the helm, both Jasmine Morris (Third Team) and Savanah Doty (Honorable Mention) received All-Conference honors. Morris led the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference in scoring and became the fastest Ladies player to reach 500 points in school history.

The Ladies finished 6-19 overall and 2-12 in SCAC play.

Foley was named the eighth head coach in school history in September 2016.

Foley joins the Centenary athletic family after serving as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator the past four seasons at NCAA Division III Luther College, helping the Norse compile a 67-40 record (.626 percentage).

In his final two seasons in 2014-15 and 2015-16, Foley helped guide the Norse to a 43-13 record (.768 percentage), two NCAA berths, two Iowa Conference Tournament Championships, and a Regular Season Iowa Conference Championship. In 2014-15, Luther finished 23-6, including 11-1 at home, and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. 

The Norse followed that season with a 20-7 record and an NCAA Tournament berth in 2015-16.

In spring 2016, Foley was named to the inaugural Thirty Under 30 list by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). According to the WBCA, the list is to “recognize up and coming talent in our coaching family." Foley was one of five honorees from more than 450 NCAA Division III institutions.

Prior to his stint with the Norse, Foley served as a Graduate Assistant Coach with Central Michigan. With the Chippewas, Foley worked directly with the first assistant and recruiting coordinator and helped with recruiting, on-court practice, game day operations, travel coordination, and academic support.

Foley attended Hendrix College from 2005-2009 and played both basketball and baseball. He was a starting forward for the first Warriors team to qualify for the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament, and earned Honorable Mention All-Conference honors his senior season. He also started all four seasons at catcher for Hendrix baseball, helping the Warriors with the SCAC in 2009. He also captured SCAC All-Tournament honors as a catcher that season.

Foley, currently working towards his Master of Arts degree in sports administration from Central Michigan, received his Bachelor of Arts in business and economics from Hendrix in 2009.
