Columbia hires Jim Engles as new basketball coach

NEW YORK (AP) Columbia has hired Jim Engles as its men's basketball coach.

Engles returned to Columbia after spending eight years as the head coach of NJIT. Over the past six seasons at the school he went 100-88, including consecutive 20-win seasons. Prior to leading the Highlanders, he was an assistant at Columbia from 2003-08.

He replaced Kyle Smith, who took the head coaching job at San Francisco last week. Engles inherits a squad that is coming off one of the best seasons in school history.
