Boys Basketball Coach Daniele Crincoli
“We are excited to announce Daniele “Coach Danny” Crincoli as our head boys’ basketball coach at St. Mary of the Assumption High School. Coach Crincoli is a high-energy leader with a long-standing history at St. Mary’s.

I’m excited to get to work and build a powerhouse program that will work together with our great administration. Together we will develop and graduate top student-athletes in the best county and state in New Jersey for high school basketball.”
Crincoli began his career at St. Mary’s in 2008-2009. Since joining the Hilltoppers, Crincoli has held many positions within the basketball program and last year was promoted to associate head coach.
