Pat Flannery (born September 23, 1957) is a former head men's basketball coach at Bucknell University.[1] He was born in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. Pat attended Pottsville Area High School and graduated in 1976. He was a standout guard on the Bucknell team and lead the Bison to several league championships before graduating in 1980. While the head men's basketball coach of the Bucknell Bison, Flannery had many accomplishment. In the 2006 regular season, for example, the Bison went undefeated in Patriot league play. Even more impressively, Flannery led his team, a 14-seed, to an epic first round victory in the 2005 NCAA tournament over basketball powerhouse, Kansas. This was objectively one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament history. Bucknell's victory was the first NCAA tournament win ever for any Patriot league team. In the 2006 NCAA tournament, the mighty Bison beat Arkansas in the first-round for their second consecutive first round victory. After the 2007-2008 basketball season, Flannery retired after fourteen years as the Bison's head men's basketball coach. Flannery now resides in Lewisburg and works in a fundraising capacity for Bucknell University.
