PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers has hired Steve Hayn as its senior adviser to men’s basketball coach Steve Pikiell.

Pikiell announced the hiring Tuesday.

Hayn has 23 years coaching experience, including 17 as a head coach, the last two at the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

Hayn and Pikiell served as assistants at Central Connecticut State under Howie Dickenman. They helped take the youngest team in the country from four wins in 1997-98 to a school-record 19 and a Northeast Conference Tournament finals appearance in 1998-99.

A two-time team captain at Stony Brook, Hayn began his coaching career at Port Jefferson (N.Y.) High School from 1993-95.
