THE BRONX - Fordham has appointed its offensive coordinator Andrew Breiner to new head football coach.

Officials say Breiner is a great choice for the job, and they are honored to be able to keep the program at a high level.

Breiner takes over a team that won nine games last season and reached the FCS playoffs three years in a row.  

He already has the support of his players, including star running back Chase Edmonds.

The former offensive coordinator spent the last seven years under Coach Moorhead.
