The New Jersey Institute of Technology has just announced that Steve Lanpher has been named as the school's new women's basketball head coach. Lanpher spent the last two seasons as an associate head coach for the Minutewomen under head coach Sharon Dawley after coming to UMass from Vermont where he had spent four years on Dawley's staff.

Here is an excerpt from NJIT's release, which includes a quote from Coach Dawley:

At UMass, Lanpher has assisted Coach Dawley in the first two years of work toward building a championship-quality program in the rugged Atlantic 10 Conference.

"Steve is a great guy and I'm going to miss him and his family," said Dawley, the UMass head coach of her former top assistant. "I'm thrilled that he's getting this opportunity to take over his own program. He's passionate about basketball and developing great relationships with the student-athletes. He's passionate about them excelling in the classroom, as well as on the basketball court."
