NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Jim Engles has nowhere to go but up as the new basketball coach at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
Engles was selected Thursday to take over a program that lost all 29 of its games last season. That set an NCAA record for futility, besting the 0-28 mark set by Prairie View of Texas in 1992 and matched by Savannah State in 2005.
NJIT is on a 33-game losing streak, dating to Feb. 19, 2007, and the school has a 5-53 mark since moving to Division I two seasons ago.
Engles has spent the last 18 years as an assistant coach at Rider, Wagner and Columbia.
