WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — UNCW director of athletics Jimmy Bass likes to keep a tight lid on coaching searches. The current search to replace Kevin Keatts as the men’s head basketball coach of the UNCW Seahawks is no different.
Kevin Keatts accepted the men’s head basketball coach position on March 17. Jimmy Bass has answered a slew of text messages, phone calls and emails since the job became vacant. Who is still in the running?
Arizona associate head coach Joe Pasternack appears to be on the short list at this point. He’s joined by Florida Gulf Coast head coach Joe Dooley and North Carolina assistant coach C.B. McGrath.
Don’t let the list of three names fool you. At any point UNCW A.D. Jimmy Bass could name a new head men’s basketball coach. We wouldn’t rule out that it may be someone other than the three men listed above.
