RIP Eddie Burke, Men's Basketball Coach 1977-1991

We were saddened to learn of the death on Monday of Eddie Burke, men's basketball coach at Drexel from 1977-1991. Coach Burke's teams won 205 games in his 14 seasons, including the win over Hofstra in the 1986 East Coast Conference championship game. That victory earned the team its first NCAA tournament appearance. The photos below show Coach Burke at a press conference and senior guard Walt Fuller in the clinching game.


For more information about Coach Burke, please see his obituary at and the Philadelphia Daily News.
