Former Pitt star Tray Woodall accepted a position on Kyle Neptune’s staff at Fordham on Wednesday morning, according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. Woodall is the second former Pitt standout to join the Fordham staff, as Ronald Ramon left a position on the Pitt staff to take a job at Fordham in May.
Prior to accepting the position, Woodall served on the St. Bonaventure staff as an assistant coach for two years. Before that, Woodall spent two years on the staff at Robert Morris, starting as the director of basketball operations and then becoming an assistant coach. Woodall got his start in coaching at IUP, where he was an assistant coach for one season.
The former Pitt guard is a native of Brooklyn, New York, and he played at St. Anthony High School in Jersey City, New Jersey, under Bob Hurley. At Pitt, Woodall played in 75 games over five seasons, amassing 1,108 points, 580 assists and 116 steals. Woodall then moved onto a professional career in which he played in Greece, Kosovo, Mexico and Turkey.
With New York City natives Woodall and Ramon on the staff of Neptune, a fellow New York City native, Fordham should be well positioned to identify and compete for talent in one of the most fertile recruiting grounds in the country. And with the new staff, Fordham will look to climb out of the Atlantic 10 cellar and post its first winning record since 2016.
