Rutgers to name Fred Hill, Jr. Head Coach

Rutgers R.small
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey is prepared to name Fred Hill, Jr. head coach of the Men’s Basketball team. Hill has served 25 years as an assistant coach and has been a tireless recruiter for Maine, Marquette, Lehigh, Villanova and Rutgers. Hill is credited with much of the success of this year’s Villanova team having recruited most of the seniors on that squad including the Big East Player of the Year, Randy Foye.

Under Hills’ tutelage, RU’s Quincy Douby became the dominant player on the Scarlet Knights this year. Douby bettered his per game scoring by nearly ten points as he led the Big East in scoring.

With his personality and strong ties to the New Jersey area, here’s hoping he finds success as head man at RU.

The Newark Star Ledger has much more about the new RU Head Coach here.
