Former UNCW hoops coach out at DePaul


The first coach to take UNCW basketball to the post-season is looking for work. DePaul fired Jerry Wainwright today after four-and-a-half seasons. His Blue Demons have lost 22 straight Big East games, including their first three this season.

Wainwright coached UNCW from 1994 to 2002. He took the Seahawks to the NCAA tournament in 2000 and 2002 before leaving for Richmond. He moved on to DePaul in 2005.

I completely agree that Moss

I completely agree that Moss needs to go. He is only an assistant coach! But we will not get a decent coach under the current admin. She has run off two great coaches already and an assistant was all they could get. Lets quit waisting money on this failure and get a football team. People will support a losing football way before a losing basketball team.

Now That He

understands the business side of caoching, let him come back to Wilmington. If I'm not mistaken, he still owns a home in the area.

Coach Moss is just not cutting the mustard.

Bring Him Back???

Sure, then the first time he is offer more money he will leave just like he did last time. They are people better than he is out there if UNCW would look and stop the good old boy club..

Benny Moss Out! Bring back Wainwright!

Now it's time for Benny Moss to go! Bring back Wainwright and we'll go back to the Big Dance and attract a decent recruiting class. These scrubs aren't cutting it!

Lets get him back at UNCW.

Lets get him back at UNCW. He did great for us and Richmond. Maybe its time to come home.
