Fusik Named Head Women's Basketball Coach



Following a two year hiatus, MCCC is excited to announce the return of women’s basketball and the hiring of Head Women’s Basketball Coach Bob Fusik.


Fusik brings an impressive coaching resume and strong track record of success. Fusik spent four seasons as Head Coach of Trenton Catholic Academy Girls Varsity Basketball, compiling a 93-9 record from 2017-2021.  During this time, TCA reached the non-public B state championship three times, winning twice.  Trenton Catholic Academy Girls Basketball were Mercer County Tournament Champions and Burlington County Scholastic League Champions in 2018, 2019 and 2020. 


Fusik was named the Trenton Times Coach of the Year three straight years (2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20) and was also named the NJ Girls Basketball Coach of the Year in 2017-2018.  While at TCA, Fusik coached two McDonald’s All-Americans (Zoe Brooks, Aalyah Del Rosario) and helped Trenton Catholic Academy to become one of the top ranked girls basketball programs in the state.


Prior to coaching at TCA, Fusik was Assistant Coach of Rutgers Prep Girls Varsity Basketball from 2010-2017.  During this time, Rutgers Prep won three Somerset County Championships and three Prep B Championships.  In their inaugural NJSIAA season in 2014, Rutgers Prep advanced to the State Tournament finals.


Fusik also served as Assistant Coach for Trenton Catholic Boys Varsity team from 2007-2010, during which time TCA won the NJSIAA Non-Public State B Championship. 


In addition to his high school coaching experience, Fusik brings over 20 years of AAU coaching experience and success.  Fusik coached the same boys AAU team (U12-U17) for five years and helped lead them to an AAU National Title and two USBA National titles in five years.  After coaching this boys AAU team, Fusik coached the Girls Central Jersey Cardinals.  In 2012, the U13 Cardinals won the AAU National title in Orlando, Florida.  Eight years ago, Fusik helped start up a new AAU program, FCP Elite, which was comprised of Mercer County’s top girls’ players.  This team went on to win two AAU National Championships in Myrtle Beach.


After leaving TCA, Fusik spent two seasons as Volunteer Assistant Girls Basketball Coach at Wildwood High School, where he helped led Wildwood to a sectional title in 2022.


Fusik is excited for this latest coaching opportunity.  “I am honored to join Mercer County Community College as the Women’s Basketball Head Coach.  I am eager to contribute my coaching expertise and passion for the game and foster a culture of excellence and sportsmanship within the team.  I look forward to working with the talented athletes at MCCC and leading them to achieve their fullest potential on and off the court.


MCCC Athletic Director Eric Grundman said the following of Fusik, the first hire of his tenure.  “Coach Fusik’s impressive coaching background and proven ability to cultivate winning teams make him an excellent addition to Mercer County Community College.  We are thrilled to welcome him as the new Head Coach for the Women’s Basketball program.”
