THE BRONX - There's a new head coach in town to take over the Fordham University basketball program. 

Jeff Neubauer says the position is an honor and he's up for the challenge of leading a team that's in the Atlantic 10 Conference. 

It's been more than two decades since Fordham last reached the NCAA Tournament, but Neubauer says the players are ready to be champions again. He's the sixth head coach hoping to lead the Rams back to the big dance. 

The team may have a better chance next season if Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year Eric Paschall decides to return for his sophomore season. He has received permission from the school to reopen his recruitment and is now visiting other programs. 

The rest of the team says that with their new coach, and with or without Paschall, they plan to have a winning season.
