EWING TOWNSHIP — The College of New Jersey has named Wayne Dickens as its interim head football coach.
Athletic director John Castaldo announced the appointment on Tuesday, less than two weeks after Eric Hamilton retired.
Dickens arrives from Kentucky State, where he was coach from 2009-12, posting a 17-25 record and two winning seasons. He has more than 20 years coaching experience as well as working with the Canadian Football League.
The Lions are coming off a 4-6 season.
In addition to Dickens, Rocky Hager has been hired as a full-time interim assistant. He recently coached at Bryant University.
Hamilton took over the Lions in 1977 and posted a 212-142-6 record.
