Title: Volunteer Assistant Men's Basketball Coach

Nick Pelotte is back for his second stint as an assistant coach for Damien Strahorn and the Colby men's basketball team.

Pelotte was an assistant for the Mules before becoming the head coach of the Waterville High School boys basketball squad. 

Pelotte is a 2005 graduate of Plymouth State University and finished his career with 2,111 points. He was an All-American selection in 2005 and was a three-time NCAA Northeast Region All-Star.

A native of Bingham, Maine (Valley High School), Pelotte made an immediate impact as a first-year at PSU by being named New England Rookie of the Year in 2002.  He earned All-New England and All-Northeast Region honors his next two seasons after averaging more than 18 points a game, and he exploded with 28.1 points per game as a senior to rank third in the nation in scoring and earned All-American and ECAC New England Player of the Year honors.

Pelotte led the Panthers to a combined record of 82-35, with three berths in the ECAC tourney and once in the NCAA.  He was the leading scorer on the 2003-04 Panthers that finished 24-6 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.  

At Valley High School, Pelotte's team never lost a game by going 84-0.
