Cumberland County College Director of Athletics Keith Gorman is pleased to announce the hiring of Will Wareham as the head coach of the Dukes Men's Basketball team.
"I'm excited to have the opportunity to lead Cumberland County College to unprecedented heights" Coach Wareham said "the expectations in the athletic department at Cumberland are very high, and I feel up to the challenge. I would also like to thank Keith Gorman for choosing me as the next head coach and trusting in me to be the right hire".
Wareham comes to Cumberland County College after a successful stint as assistant coach under head coach John Baron at Gwynedd Mercy University. During Wareham's five seasons at Gwynedd Mercy he helped the Griffins to a 78-31 record, while also serving as the teams lead recruiter and head of player development amongst other duties.
Prior to being an assistant coach at Gwynedd Mercy, Wareham was the head coach at Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing, New Jersey. Will was responsible for all aspects of the program including recruiting, coaching/game management, scheduling, and practice planning. Before his time at ACC, Wareham coached at Cape May Technical High school as both head coach of the junior varsity team and as assistant varsity coach.
Wareham becomes the head coach after former head coach Barry Brodzinski had to step away from the position because of personal reasons.
Coach Wareham will inherit a Dukes team that went 13-16 overall, and 7-12 in the GSAC.
"We are very pleased to have Will as the head of the Men's basketball program. The program is on the verge of becoming a consistent contender in Region XIX. Will is a tireless recruiter and possesses the organization and discipline necessary to get the job done."
Outside of Gwynedd Mercy, Wareham is the co-founder and co-director of New Jersey Soldiers Basketball Club. The New Jersey soldiers basketball club has become very popular in New Jersey and has expanded from 11 players to over 85. Will currently works full time as a recruiting and retention operation supervisor for the New Jersey Army National Guard. He served the United States in Iraq from 2003-2004 and now lives in Vineland, New Jersey with his wife and six kids.
