FDU has hired Tobin Anderson to take up the mantle as the eighth head coach in FDU Men’s Basketball history. 

This news comes out eight days after former coach Greg Herenda and the Knights mutually parted ways.

The Knights sent out a formal press release Tuesday afternoon confirming the news after first being reported by CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein on Twitter.

Anderson, like Herenda, will be making the transition from Division II to Division I Basketball. Many prominent names have expressed excitement over the hire, including ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

 “Fairleigh Dickinson has made an inspired hiring with Tobin Anderson as the new men’s basketball coach…” Wojnarowsk told the Knights.

The new Knights’ head coach certainly has the resume to back up the hype. He led the Division II St. Thomas Aquinas Spartans to an incredible 209-62 record over a nine-year career with the team. Some notable accolades included seven straight NCAA tournament appearances and an Elite Eight appearance in the 2016-17 season, which was the first in the program’s history.

The Equinox will continue coverage as Anderson’s introduction will be made official in a press conference on Thursday, May 5 at 1 p.m.Please follow us on Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. Write to us at equinoxfdu@gmail.com.
