Former Villanova guard Corey Fisher is headed back to the Main Line to join the Wildcats’ coaching staff. The news was first announced by head coach Kyle Neptune.
“We’re excited to welcome Corey back to Villanova,” Neptune said in a statement. “He’s a great addition to our staff. His understanding of what it takes to succeed as a player in our program will be invaluable.”
Fisher will be overseeing Student-Athlete Development, a position that has been filled by numerous alumni throughout the years. Most recently, the role was previously held by Darryl Reynolds (2018-19), Kris Jenkins (2019-20), and Maalik Wayns (2021-22).
The Bronx native enjoyed a standout career at Villanova, amassing 1,672 points over his four years as a Wildcat from 2007-11. His 487 career assists are among the program’s top-eight all-time leaders. He helped Villanova reach the Sweet 16 his freshman year, then the Final Four as a sophomore, where he was also named the Big East Sixth Man of the Year.
After his collegiate playing days, Fisher went on to enjoy a lengthy career overseas. He’s played professionally, mostly in Europe, every year since 2011. He most recently played for French Pro B league team Vichy-Clermont from 2021-23.
