Eketebi promoted to men's head coach at FIU

MOST COMMENTED

As expected, Munga Eketebi was hired as Florida International's new men's head coach.

Eketebi, who becomes the fourth head coach in the 35-year history of the program, replaces Karl Kremser under whom he worked as an assistant for almost two decades.

Eketebi took a short hiatus from FIU in 1996 when he served a one-year stint as the men's head coach at Nova Southeastern, leading the NAIA Knights to an undefeated regular-season record in the Sun Conference.

Eketebi played four years (1983-86) for the Golden Panthers and was named All-American three times. Eketebi's 50 career goals remain tied for the most in program history. Additionally, his 124 career points rank second and his 24 assists tie him for fifth among FIU's all-time scoring leaders. He was a key member of the 1984 Division II national championship squad and the 1985 runner-up team with six playoff goals, including four in an NCAA Tournament win over Lock Haven in 1984.
