Howie Dickenman retires after 20 seasons as Central Connecticut head coach

Courtesy of the Northeast Conference and NEC Front Row, here is the ceremony honoring Central Connecticut State head coach Howie Dickenman, who announced his retirement after 20 seasons at the helm of his alma mater. Dickenman's Blue Devils were defeated by Fairleigh Dickinson on Saturday afternoon, falling to the Knights by the final of 81-75 at Detrick Gymnasium in New Britain:

  1. Love the retiring A.D. Dr. Miller, wore a bow tie in Coach Dickenman's honor (who wore it in honor of Coach Phelan) Dr. Miller said of Coach D "you are a man of integrity, a man of honor." It is part of the reason, in spite of several rough years that would get most men fired, he was offered a contract extension. He chose to retire. FDU who beat CCSU in this home finale, stayed for the ceremony. Class move. The gym was full for the worst team in the NEC, That should say enough about Coach Dickenman. Another one of the old school who cares about the students more than the limelight is done. As a hoops fan, I have much respect for how his teams played but I have more respect for how he handled his job. I hope he finds joy in retirement.
