compiled from staff and wire reports

Hofstra University has confirmed that it has hired Tim Welsh to be its men’s basketball coach.

The former coach at Providence College and Iona College has spent the past two years as a commentator for ESPNU.

Welsh takes over for Tom Pecora, who took the job at Fordham last week.  Pecora had a record of 155-126 in nine years at Hofstra, with three straight NIT appearances from 2005-2007.

Hofstra lost in the second round of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. The Pride finshed this past season at 19-15. Hofstra joined the CAA in 2001, and eventhough it has enjoyed success on the basketball court, the administration wants “The Big Dance”.  The Pride haven’t been able to reach the NCAA tournament since becoming a member in the tough CAA.

Tim Welsh spent 10 seasons at Providence, leading the Friars to the NCAA tournament in 2001 and 2004.  His record was 160-143.  At Iona, he compiled a 70-22 record, with one NCAA and two NIT appearances.

SPORTS SPOTLIGHT: Rob Carpenter: Ex-NFL star, current Lancaster High School Football Coach

During the football season during our Friday night High School football  broadcasts, we feature a coach, athlete, athletic adminsitrator or Hall of Famer on WPKO-FM/WBLL-AM, the Peak of This past 2009 season, we had a chance to feature a former NFL running back and current Lancaster Golden Gales head football coach, Rob Carpenter.

Robert Joseph Carpenter, Jr., was born April 20, 1955 in Lancaster, Ohio. He played at Miami of Ohio in the Mid-American Conference for Bill Mallory.

He was drafted  in the third roun, 84th pick by the Houston Oilers. He played with Houston from 1977-1981; the New York Giants from 1981-1985 and the Los Angeles Rams in 1986.

Carpenter rushed for 4,363 yards in a 10-year NFL career.

He has four sons. Bobby Carpenter, the former Ohio State linebacker is now with the Dallas Cowboys; Jonathan Carpenter played at Cincinnati and is a graduate assistant there; Georgie is at Marshall University and Nathan Carpenter played for his dad this past season at Lancaster and will be playing in college in 2010.

The 6’1 220 pound Rob Carpenter had several good seasons in the NFL:

With Houston in 1977, 652 yards, 1 touchdown and a 4.5 yards per game.

With the New York Giants in 1981, 748 yards, 5 touchdowns.

With the New York Giants in 1983, 624 yards, 4 touchdowns.

With the New York Giants in 1984, 795 yards, 7 touchdowns.

When Rob was in Houston, he played with Earl Campbell.

When Rob was with the New York Giants, his teammates included: Lawrence Taylor, Phil Simms and Henry Carson.

Rob had his moments in New York. There was a 1985 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Joe Morris gained over 200 yards and lost a shoe on one of his touchdown runs. Rob Carpenter was blocking his head off opening holes for Joe Morris and had a beautiful 46 yard run. Carpenter was a fan favorite from what members of the media tell me who covered the team in those days.
