Brian Lebowitz has been promoted to head coach of the Franklin men’s basketball team, it was announced this week by interim director of athletics Lance Marshall. Lebowitz assumes the role after a six-year stint as an assistant coach with the program.

“I’m so thankful to President Prather, Coach Marshall and the Franklin community for the opportunity,” Lebowitz said. “Since I arrived in Franklin, I have been extremely fortunate to work with so many great players, coaches and alumni. This opportunity is extremely humbling, and I am looking forward to continuing the legacy President Prather left of producing championship teams on the court while supporting great student-athletes in the Franklin community.”
