FDU removes interim tag from Vetrone
Teaneck, NJ (Sports Network) - Fairleigh Dickinson has removed the interim tag from Greg Vetrone and has named him the permanent men's basketball coach.
Vetrone was given the job on an interim basis for last season and led the team to a 10-8 record in the Northeast Conference and an 11-21 overall mark. FDU was beaten by Long Island in the quarterfinals of the NEC tournament.
"Greg is a great fit for this university," athletics director David Langford said. "His strong recruiting skills, networking capabilities and fundraising strengths complement his coaching abilities very well. We are excited about what he can do here at FDU and we share his vision for this program. I expect great things from Greg."
Vetrone joined the Knights' staff for the 2008-09 season as an assistant under then head coach Tom Green having served in the same capacity with the program from 1988-1991 where his responsibilities also included overseeing recruiting.
