North Salem native Michael DePaoli has been named interim head coach for the Fordham University men's basketball team, effective immediately, according to a statement released by the University on Tuesday afternoon.

Jeff Neubauer had been the head coach for the past six seasons. The Rams are 1-7 this season. DePaoli, in his 11th year at Fordham, will lead the team for the remainder of this season while the University undertakes a national search for Neubauer's replacement. 

DePaoli graduated from North Salem High School in 2003 as the school's all-time leading scorer with 1,767 points. He was inducted into the school's Hall of Fame in 2007.
