Former Vermont head coach and current Tennessee assistant coach Bill Currier will be named an Associate Head Coach at Fairfield. After the 2011 season, he will become the head coach when John Slosar retires after 26 seasons in charge of the Stags. Currier spent last season as a volunteer assistant coach at Tennessee where he helped lead them to a 30-26 mark while going 12-18 in the SEC.
Currier had a solid career with the Vermont Catamounts before the program was cut after the 2009 season. He amassed a 486-470 record, including a 240-203 mark in America East conference action. He was named the America East Coach of the Year on three occasions, claiming the award in 2002, 2003 and 2006. He also guided Vermont to the school’s first two America East regular-season championships in both 2003 and 2006 and helped the Catamounts finish second in 2002 and 2005.
