Fred Hill, who has been the head coach at Rutgers since 1984, has announced his retirement.
“It has been a heck of a run,” Hill said. “I enjoyed every second during my time at Rutgers. Thirty years is a long time, but it came and went very quickly. I want to say thank you to everyone involved.”
Hill has 37 years as a head coach at the collegiate level, with an overall record of 1,089-749-9 (.592) and a 941-658-7 (.588) record with the Scarlet Knights.
“Coach Hill gave his passion and purpose to Rutgers baseball for 30 years,” Director of Athletics Julie Hermann said. “His contribution to our department is immeasurable both as a coach and a great ambassador of our University. His leadership and inspiration will be missed.”
During his career, Hill sent 72 players to professional baseball and developed 20 All-Americans. Currently, Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds and David DeJesus of the Tampa Bay Rays represent Rutgers in Major League Baseball.
Joe Litterio has been named head coach. He had been on Hill’s coaching staff for two seasons.
“I am honored and excited to be taking over the Rutgers University baseball program,” Litterio said. “Having had the privilege to be around Coach Hill as a player, a peer and an assistant has been beneficial to me. Being an alum, I will take pride in keeping the Rutgers baseball family together. I would like to thank Julie Hermann for giving me this opportunity. I will work hard to continue the success of the program to bring it to the next level.”
One hundred and forty eight student-athletes made the Fall 2013 dean’s list at Rutgers University.
“It is a testament to the commitment our student athletes make to be successful both in an out of the classroom,” Scott Walker, Rutgers Director of Academic Support Services for Student Athletes, said.
Rutgers football had the most representation on the list, including 19 Scarlet Knights. Rowing followed with 17 members earning the honor, as women’s soccer had 14 to continue to academic success in Piscataway. A total number of 21 sports at least one member on the list. Highlighting the list, 28 RU student-athletes recorded a perfect 4.0 GPA on the semester.

GEICO SportsNite has highlights from Louisville’s 102-54 win over Rutgers on Sunday.
Nearly four weeks after his team lost by 14 points to SMU in Dallas, Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan saw a silver lining despite a similar defeat Friday night.
Myles Mack had 17 points and Kadeem Jack scored 15, but the Scarlet Knights (10-15, 4-8 American Athletic Conference) were unable to post consecutive league triumphs for the first time this season, falling 77-65 to the No. 23 Mustangs.
“I see improvement in the way we’re going, the way we’re playing,” Jordan said. “I really didn’t have a problem with the way we played tonight. I thought we had terrific effort, we shared the basketball, we played the game plan for the most part but there was some breakdowns, some missed assignments.”

QB Mike Dare and TE Nakia Griffin already have a bond.
The two Rutgers commits worked together in camp over the summer and are looking to build on their relationship moving forward.
“I didn’t know him prior to that and he didn’t know me. But we just started building a little bit of chemistry during the 7-on-7. I’m pretty big, so I was one of his favorite targets. He was throwing me the ball a lot. And he threw it so hard that he ripped my glove one time,” Griffin said.

Thursday night’s game between the SMU Mustangs and Rutgers’ men’s basketball team has been postponed, the conference announced.
The game has been rescheduled for Friday, but the time is to be announced.
Originally posted on SNY UCONN:
John F. SilverRutgers is headed to the B1G, and the last piece of the puzzle was negotiating its exit fee.
The school has done so with the American paving the way for the final exit of Rutgers into the B1G this summer.
Rutgers had sued the AAC over the exit fees in hopes of lowering the $15 million that the AAC sought. The amount of exit fee is now $11.5 million.
This ends the final chapter of the old Big East, which was raided for Louisville, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse and West Virginia by the likes of the B1G, ACC and Big 12.
The league will welcome East Carolina, Tulane and Tulsa next year for all sports and bid adieu to Louisville and Rutgers. In 2015, the league will welcome Navy as a football only and in a 12-team league establish a championship game.

Rutgers football has added four assistant coaches and re-assigned another, costing $1.5 million this offseason.
In preparation for their big move to the Big Ten, here are the new paychecks the team will be cutting, via NJ.com:
Those assistant salaries are topped by new offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen’s $500,000 annual deal — the most ever paid to a Rutgers assistant. Friedgen, new linebackers coach and special teams coordinator Bob Fraser ($300,000 per year), Rossi ($300,000 per year, a $100,000 raise for him), McDaniels ($200,000 per year) and new offensive line coach Mitch Browning ($200,000 per year) have two-year deals.
