Ford, who posted a 46-86 record at BU in four seasons from 2011-15, will work for former college teammate Jeff Boals at Division I Stony Brook.
“I’m very excited to add Geno to our Seawolves’ basketball family,” Boals said in a statement. “His experiences and knowledge will be beneficial in order for our program to continue its success.”
Ford has spent 22 years in college basketball, most recently serving as an analyst on the ESPN family of networks. Ford did television work the past year after being dismissed at Bradley in March of 2015.
