FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ New Fairfield University coach Sydney Johnson has big goals for the program.

Johnson led Princeton to a share of the Ivy League championship and a berth in the NCAA tournament. Now he’s aiming to guide the Stags to appearances on national television and wins in the NCAA tournament.

Johnson was introduced Wednesday at the Barone Campus center.

The 1997 Princeton graduate led the Tigers to a 25-7 record this season, including a 63-62 win over Harvard in the Ivy League tiebreaker. They ended the season with a 59-57 loss to Kentucky in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

He replaces Ed Cooley, who left to become coach at Providence.
