Neubauer replaced at Fordham with DePaoli for rest of 2020-21 season

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Fordham Rams men’s basketball coach Jeff Neubauer has stepped down. He has been replaced on an interim basis by associate head coach Michael DePaoli.

At this time, it’s not clear why Neubauer stepped down. Once the season ends, a national search will begin to find a permanent head coach.

“Fordham Athletics appreciates Coach Neubauer and his commitment and leadership to our men’s basketball program over the past six seasons,” Interim Director of Athletics Ed Kull said. “We are grateful for Jeff’s hard work and dedication and thank him for his service to Fordham. We wish him and his family the best in the future.”

The team returns to the court on Wednesday with DePaoli leading the team. Fordham hosts the Duquesne Dukes at Rose Hill Gym in the Bronx, New York.

As a head coach Neubauer was 61-104 with the Rams. With his leadership, the team has not won more than 13 games in the past five seasons.
