Jonathan Pena played three seasons for the Knights from 2006 through 2009, helping Berkeley College win three Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles during that time. He was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament during his senior season of 2008-2009. Following his playing career, Pena immediately transitioned to the coaching ranks, serving as an assistant coach for Chris Christiansen for seven years before being promoted to Associate Head Coach following the 2015-2016 campaign.
Pena has been an integral piece of the program's history. After playing a pivotal role leading the team to three regional crowns as a player, he became even more of a staple of the program as an assistant coach, as his versatility saw him recruit countless student-athletes to the program while also maximizing their potential by putting them in the best position to succeed strategically on the court. His upside is glaring, and after leading Berkeley to Regional and National crowns in 2017-2018, sky is the limit for the young Head Coach.
