Lauren DeFalco joined the staff at Seton Hall prior to the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach. She works primarily with Seton Hall's guards and also serves as the Pirates' recruiting coordinator.
Prior to joining Head Coach Anthony Bozzella's staff at Seton Hall, DeFalco spent two seasons in the same capacity working with Bozzella at Iona College, and she served two seasons as a graduate assistant coach with the women's basketball program at Sacred Heart University.
As an assistant coach at Iona DeFalco's specialization was with the Gaels' guards while she also aided in recruiting and scouting duties.
In her first season with Iona the Gaels went 13-18 overall and 8-10 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC), falling in the second round of the MAAC Tournament. During her second year Iona would post a 20-win season, going 20-13 overall. The Gaels advanced to the MAAC Championship game and earned a berth into the WNIT, the fourth postseason appearance in program history.
Collegiately, DeFalco starred for four seasons as a player for Bozzella at Iona, helping guide the Gaels to several of the most successful campaigns in program history. She graduated as Iona's all-time leader in three-point field goals and games played.
During DeFalco's junior and senior seasons Iona made back-to-back appearances in the MAAC Championship game and earned consecutive berths to the WNIT in 2007 and 2008.
A native of New Brunswick, N.J., DeFalco was a prep basketball star at Immaculata High School before attending Iona.
