Fordham hires Jeff Neubauer

The Fordham Rams have hired Eastern Kentucky coach Jeff Neubauer, multiple sources told ESPN on Monday.

Neubauer, 44, has been the coach at EKU since 2005 and has taken the school to the NCAA tourney twice.

He was previously an assistant under John Beilein at West Virginia.

Neubauer replaces Tom Pecora, 57, who was fired March 18 after going 44-86 in five seasons at Fordham.
