The Rutgers Scarlet Knights announced on Sunday that women’s basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer will take time off. The 70-year-old will be replaced by Tim Eastman on an interim basis.
She is expected to return after the B1G Tournament.
“As you can imagine this was not an easy decision, however, in consultation with my doctors, it is in my best interest to spend time to get healthy before returning to the day-to-day grind of coaching,” said Stringer. “I would not be able to do this without the faith in my assistants Tim Eatman, Kelley Gibson and Nadine Domond to handle the program in my absence. I know our young ladies can finish the season strong playing Scarlet Knight basketball and I will rejoin the team as soon as I can.
“I would like to thank the many friends, fans and members of the Rutgers Athletics community that have sent me well wishes and I look forward to seeing you all soon.”
