This liberal think tank of higher learning is not truly committed to athletics. If you are going to participate in Division I athletics, there needs to be a strong commitment from administrators. The last Athletic Director that fired a head basketball coach lost their job shortly after their departure. I would have serious reservations about coaching at UNCW. Brad Brownell was a good coach who kept the program on the winning side of the ledger.Upon his departure , the program lost a lot of momentum. With nine games left in a horrible regular season, I would have let Benny Moss finish the season out. Politically, you can gather that something was in the works. I truly enjoy college athletics , but I have not been inspired to attend a UNCW basketball game in years. The baseball team plays quality ball with a good head coach. You see what they think of him by making him one of the lowest paid coaches , despite his consistency and success.There is not a big-time college atmosphere at UNCW because they lack the financial resources and commitment. I have been to a school that has big-time college athletics ,excitement and tremendous passion for it's athletic programs and it is worth the drive to Greenville ,N.C everytime.
