Corasaniti named director of SU operations



SYRACUSE — Peter Corasaniti has been named the director of men’s basketball operations at Syracuse University, according to head coach Jim Boeheim in a press release issued Monday.

The 2014 SU graduate, who previously worked as a graduate assistant and student head manager for the Orange men’s basketball team, had spent the past three seasons as director of men’s basketball operations at Binghamton University.

Corasaniti will manage the operations of the men’s basketball office, help coordinate team travel and recruiting visits, assist in management of SU camps and clinics, and serve as the liaison with department support services.

Corasaniti graduated in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in sports management and a minor in coaching, and earned his master’s degree in new media management from SU in 2016. During his six-year tenure with the men’s basketball program — four seasons as student manager and two as graduate assistant — SU advanced to a pair of NCAA Final Four berths in 2013 and ’16.

Last season, Corasaniti helped guide the Bearcats (10-23) to their first America East Conference Tournament victory since 2012.
