NJIT Staff Update…

Kim Waiters, who will be in his first full time college coaching position, has joined the NJIT men’s basketball staff as an assistant, Highlanders head coach Jim Engles announced.

Engles also announced the appointment of Andrew McGlynn as Director of Basketball Operations.

Waiters got involved with coaching when he was an undergraduate at Robert Morris in Pennsylvania.

At Robert Morris, Waiters worked as a student assistant and after graduating in 2011 with a bachelor’s of Business Management, Waiters became the Director of Skills Camps at the Pocono Invitational, a prestigious overnight camp that began operation in 1963.

From the Pocono Invitational, Waiters headed to The Hoop Group, the largest basketball instruction organization in the world. Waiters directed 10 Premier Grassroots AAU team tournaments and 16 high school events featuring premier teams from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Maryland.

“Kim is an outstanding person who has the potential to be one of the top young basketball coaches in the country,” said Engles, the John McLendon National Coach of the Year, who led the Highlanders to a school-record 21 wins in 2014-15. “He is a tremendous addition to our coaching staff, a tireless recruiter, terrific relationship builder and someone who believes in the values that align with both the NJIT community and our men’s basketball program.”

McGlynn joins the NJIT men’s basketball staff after working as a Video Coordinator at La Salle University in 2014-15.

McGlynn entered college coaching as a graduate assistant for University of Detroit Mercy men’s basketball program, managing video operations and assisting with opponent scouting. In 2013, Detroit Mercy clinched an NIT berth, McGlynn’s first season on staff.
He was head student manager for the Towson men’s basketball program for four seasons and graduated in 2012 with a bachelor’s in Sport Management and received his MBA in Business Administration from Detroit Mercy in 2014.

Beginning in June 2011, when he was an intern, McGlynn worked for The Hoop Group, the largest basketball instruction organization in the world.

“We are extremely excited to have Andrew join our staff, said Engles of his new DBO. ” He brings a wealth of experience from working on the staffs of Detroit and La Salle. He is a true professional in every sense of the word and will definitely help us elevate our program as we make the jump to the Atlantic Sun Conference.”
