Basketball (M): Rob Perron

Rob Perron

Head Coach
Alma Mater: St. Andrews '96


Rob Perron became the 12th men’s basketball coach in school history prior to the 2014-15 season. He came to Catawba after serving as associate head coach at Newberry. 

Taking over a squad that had won less than 10 games in each of the three previous seasons, Perron has guided Catawba to double-digit wins each year. In 2018-19, the Indians returned to NCAA Tournament action for the first time since 2010 and equaled the school’s record wins since joining NCAA II.

Perron served as recruiting coordinator at Newberry and helped implement an offensive system that ranked second in the nation in scoring in his final season with the Wolves.  Newberry just missed getting an invitation to the NCAA II Regional.

Prior to joining Dave Davis at Newberry, Perron was the Director of Basketball Operations for the Charlotte 49ers from 2006 to 2012.  While there, he worked with all aspects of the program, including managing the budget, recruiting, scheduling and community engagement.

Perron also worked with Davis at Pfeiffer before going to Charlotte.  He was head coach at St. Andrews from 2002 to 2005 and took a 2-25 team prior to his arrival to the CVAC Tournament semifinals in his first season.  He started his coaching career at St. Andrews as an assistant in 1997.

A 1996 graduate of St. Andrews, Perron earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology.  While at St. Andrews, he was team MVP and was captain of the basketball, cross country and track teams.  He scored over 1,100 points with over 700 rebounds in a four-year playing career which also included two seasons at Normandale (Minn.) Community College.

Although he becomes Catawba’s 12th head coach, Perron is just the third man to guide the Catawba Indians since 1960.  He replaced Jim Baker, who was head coach for 20 seasons.  Sam Moir had guided Catawba for the previous 34 years.

Perron and his wife, Stephanie, have two children, Carter (11) and Stella (8).  Stephanie is a native of Charlotte and is a RN at REACH.
