Berry copmiled a record of 40-64, including going 24-37 in CUNYAC play. The Hawks were 9-17 this past season.

During his third season, Berry coached CUNYAC first team all-star Frankie Drayton and this past season, the Hawks ranked 11th in free-throw percentage in NCAA Division III.

"(Shay) was an integral part of our athletic administrative team and basketball program," said Wansart. "His professionalism, hard work ethic and humor was valued throughout the program. We wish him the best in his future endeavors."
