NEW YORK (AP) Fordham hired longtime Villanova assistant Kyle Neptune on Tuesday to take over a men's basketball program that has had only two winning seasons since joining the Atlantic 10 Conference in 1995.
The 36-year-old Neptune grew up in Brooklyn before attending Lehigh, where he played for four years and was a team captain as a senior.
"This is Fordham's time. As a native New Yorker, I couldn't be more thrilled to be coming home at a moment like this, when Fordham men's basketball is poised to make its mark in the Atlantic 10 Conference and beyond," he said in a statement. "I know this program well and I know its potential to recruit and develop winning young men both on and off the court who will inspire Fordham fans and the entire community."
