Luke D'Alession will spend his third season on the Loyola Greyhounds' bench in 2012-2013 where heassists with all aspects of the program, including recruiting, scouting and player development.
D'Alessio is best known for his success at Division II Bowie State, where he compiled a 199-96 record over 10 seasons that included three consecutive trips to the National Tournament (2002-2005) and a trip to the 2003 NCAA Division II Final Four. In his second season, he led the Bulldogs to their first winning record (19-9) in 30 seasons and the NCAA appearances were the first in the history of the school.
Prior to his stop in Bowie, he spent six years at CCBC-Catonsville where he led a turnaround in the program following 14 consecutive losing seasons. By his third season in 1995-1996, the Cardinals were 28-7 to begin a string of four straight 20-win seasons. That year ended with a trip to the JUCO Elite Eight following a Region XX Championship. D'Alessio's record during his tenure at CCBC-Catonsville was 124-52 (.700).
His previous coaching position prior to joining the staff at Loyola was as the head coach of the UCC Blue Demons, a professional team based in Cork, Ireland. In one season (2009-2010), he led the Blue Demons to a 16-8 final record (.667), advancing to the semifinals of the national league championship playoffs.
One of a long line of college coaches who learned under Jack Bruen at The Catholic University of America, D'Alessio was a two-time all-conference player for the Cardinals while scoring 936 points. After a short stint as the junior varsity coach at Good Counsel HS following his playing days, he returned to his alma mater to spend six seasons as an assistant, serving under both Bruen (1986-1989) and Bob Valvano (1989-1992). He was an assistant on Bruen's teams that included D'Alessio's current boss, Loyola head coach Jimmy Patsos.
Luke and his wife Jacqui have three children: Jacob, Elena, and Alex.
