Teaneck, NJ (Sports Network) - Fairleigh Dickinson has named Greg Herenda as
its new men's basketball coach.
Herenda spent the past five seasons at UMass-Lowell, where he posted a record
of 95-54 en route to becoming the Division II program's all-time winningest
"I cannot tell you how excited my family and I are to be coming back to New
Jersey and to be the head coach at Fairleigh Dickinson University," said
Herenda, a 52-year-old native of nearby North Bergen. "This is a dream come
true. This will be my 30th year of coaching college basketball, and the road
has taken me all over the country and the world. It's incredible that I start
my Division I career at home."
Herenda has also been a head coach at Division III Cabrini College (2007-08)
and Elgin (Ill.) Community College. He's also been an assistant at East
Carolina, Yale, Seton Hall and Holy Cross on the Division I level.
Fairleigh Dickinson needed a replacement for Greg Vetrone, whose contract was
not renewed after four years and a record of 26-95.
