Vice Chancellor for Athletics and Recreation, Special Projects and Programs Charlie Titus was named as one of the inaugural members of the Little East Conference Hall of Fame on Saturday, October 27 at a ceremony in Providence, Rhode Island.
Titus is considered one of the founding fathers of the Little East Conference; he commissioned the first organizational meeting to begin the process of establishing the conference in September of 1984 at UMass Boston.
“It was truly an honor to be recognized,” Vice Chancellor Titus said.
Titus is the only person to lead the University of Massachusetts Boston athletics department. In addition to his executive responsibilities, Titus is the only men's basketball coach the Beacons' program has ever known. He has led UMass Boston to two NCAA Division III tournament appearances, three Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III Northeast tournaments, and the 2006 Little East Tournament Championship. Titus was chosen as the National Association of Basketball Coaches Division III Northeast Coach of the Year in 2006, while receiving the conference's top award in 1997 and 2006.
The 11-member inaugural class was comprised of five athletic administrators, four former student-athletes, and two coaches.
Other athletic administers include: Al Bean of University of Southern Maine, John P. Clark of Plymouth State University, Richard Costello of the University of Southern Maine, and Dr. William Moore.
