Ron Ganulin (born May 15, 1945) is a long time college basketball coach known for his 1990 UNLV NCAA National Championship as an assistant coach and his time as head coach at St. Francis College.
Before he began his coaching career, Ganulin played collegiate basketball at Long Island University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1968. During his senior season, LIU advanced to the Division II National Collegiate Semifinals.
Prior to his tenure at St. Francis, Ganulin reached the pinnacle of the college basketball world as an assistant coach with UNLV. Ganulin helped the team capture the 1990 NCAA National Championship. During his four-year stay in Las Vegas, the Rebels enjoyed a 126–23 record.
After St. Francis College, Ganulin served as the coordinator of player development for the Wizards during the 2005–06 season.
Coach Ganulin also coached the boys Junior Varsity, as head coach, and assistant coach for Varsity basketball, at the Yeshiva University High School for Boys in Uptown NYC.
Ganulin was the head coach of St. Francis (NY) Terriers for 14 seasons, from 1991 to 2005. As head coach, Ganulin accumulated 187 wins and was twice named the Northeast Conference's Coach of the Year. During Ganulin's tenure, St. Francis finished with a .500 or better record in the league eight straight years, at that time the longest active streak in the NEC. The Terriers reached the NEC semi-finals five times and had two championship game appearances. From 1998 through 2004, St. Francis posted a 78-36 conference record, which was best in the NEC. During that span, Ganulin guided the Terriers to two Northeast Conference Regular Season Championships as well as their first 20 win season in 43 years.
In 2013, Ganulin returned to St. Francis to be an assistant coach under Glenn Braica, who was his assistant during his head coaching tenure at St. Francis.
