Rider University mourns the loss of former Athletics Director John Carpenter

Carpenter also led the men’s basketball team to 292 wins — a record

05/09/2017

John Barker Carpenter of Avon Park, Fla., who led Rider's men's basketball team to 292 wins — more than any other coach in University history — died at home on April 14, 2017. He was 86 years old.

Carpenter coached the Rider men’s basketball team for 23 seasons, from 1966 to 1989. His total career win tally of 292 set the record for most wins for a Rider basketball coach — 105 more wins than the second-winningest basketball coach. Carpenter took the 1983-84 team to the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history.

In addition to being a coach, he was also Rider’s longtime athletic director, a role in which he placed primary emphasis on the academic side of the college experience. During his tenure, Rider athletics grew from four to 16 sports.

Born in Ulysses, Pa., Carpenter was a longtime resident of Lawrence Township, N.J., and Sebring / Avon Park, Fla. Read more....
