Robert Morris head coach Andy Toole, one of the hottest names in the coaching carousel, has decided to remain with the Colonials, the school announced on Friday night.
“We’re thrilled that Andy has decided to remain at RMU,” Robert Morris athletic director Craig Coleman said in a statement. “He has accomplished a great deal with our program, and we have full confidence that he can take our program to even greater heights.”
Toole is 110-66 since taking over the program in 2010. He helped Robert Morris reach the 2015 NCAA Tournament after back-to-back appearances in the NIT the two previous seasons. The Colonials defeated North Florida in the First Four before being eliminated by No. 1 Duke in the Round of 64.
Toole had been in contention for the Fordham vacancy. The Rams parted ways with Tom Pecora after five seasons. Fordham, which hasn’t had a winning record since 2007, actually has some young talent on the roster. However, the Rams’ future took a hit when their top player, Eric Paschall, the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year, was granted his release, as he will explore other options.
