Stephen Perretta’s Family
Stephen William Perretta was born on October 12, 1998, to Harry Perretta and Helen Koskinen. He grew up in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, alongside his younger brother, Michael John Perretta.
The Perretta brothers grew up in a basketball-inclined family. And their dad is a recognizable Villanova legend.
Harry Perretta became the youngest coach ever to head a women’s varsity program. At only 22 years old, he was hired to lead the Villanova women’s basketball team.
Meanwhile, Helen Koskinen played on his team from 1986 to 1990. But they would only begin dating in 1995. Moreover, she also worked as an assistant coach for a while.

Harry Perretta coached at Villanova until 2020. And his sons attended the university during the final years of his tenure.
Since retiring from coaching after 42 seasons, Harry Perretta has switched over to broadcasting. And he is regularly enlisted as a studio analyst on college games.
Since then, a new Coach Perretta has taken over. Stephen Perretta has also continued his father’s legacy in basketball.
Fun fact: The Perretta family went to Phillies games during the 2009 MLB World Series. An 11-year-old Stephen got some cool souvenirs from the games—a foul ball and Derek Jeter’s shattered baseball bat that knocked him off his feet. Jeter made up for it with a signed baseball, and the Phillies gave the family a box full of merchandise.
Stephen Perretta’s Education and Career
Stephen Perretta enrolled at Villanova University in 2017 when his father was inching towards retirement. He didn’t play basketball but was the timeout coordinator for the basketball and lacrosse teams and a spotter for the football broadcasts.

That same year, Perretta enrolled at Fairleigh Dickinson University. He is expected to receive a master’s in sports administration this year.
