    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 coach.

    "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.
