I had the same thought.
In the BSC (Big South Conference) UNC-A was not "stellar" but was certainly one of the better teams. They were a medium fish in a small pond so to speak.
UNC-W is a weaker fish in a slightly bigger pond IMHO and he's going from head coach to assistant coach.
It COULD be he wants to throttle back and I won't begrudge him that but college coaching is such and ego trip for these guys i find that hard to believe.
