Bisacca was the head coach of the Fairfield Stags men's basketball team coach for 11 seasons from 1958 to 1968 where he compiled a 151-87 record.

During his tenure Bisacca led Fairfield to the Tri-State League championship and three straight NCAA College Division II Tournaments from 1960 through 1962. He then elevated the program to NCAA DI status.

In 1967-68, his 10th and final season as a college coach, his Stags faced the nation’s No. 1 team, Houston (led by future Hall-of-Famer Elvin Hayes), defeated Niagara (led by another future Hall-of Famer Calvin Murphy) before a capacity crowd in the old New Haven Arena and lost to undefeated St. Bonaventure (led by yet another future Hall-of-Famer Bob Lanier) in overtime.[1]
