The Northeast Conference Men's Basketball Coach of the Year is a basketball award given to head coaches in the Northeast Conference (NEC). The award is granted to the head coach voted to be the most successful that season by the league's coaches; the award was first given following the 1982–83 season, the second year of the conference's existence, to Matt Furjanic of Robert Morris.[1]

Howie Dickenman of Central Connecticut has won the most awards with four. Eight other coaches have won the award twice. One former NEC Coach of the Year has been inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame as a coach: Jim Phelan (inducted 2001). Due to Jim Phelans success, in 2003 the NEC men's basketball coach of the year award was named in his honor;[2] also of note, the only year when the award was shared was in 1993 with Jim Phelan and Kevin Bannon as winners. The men's basketball programs with the most winners are St. Francis Brooklyn and Robert Morris, each with 5.
