    UNCW fires coach McGrath

    If this is to early. Mods feel free to do what you think best.

    This is my hometown & my wife graduated from UNCW. My first thoughts are don't hire another coach with UNC on their resume. I think they are still paying for Buzz Peterson. I think most people here are resigned to occasionally catching a rising star like Kevin Keatts & Brad Brownell but you will not be able to hold on to them.. Also Jerry Wainright was here for 8 years and they won what I believe is their only NCAA tournament game in 2002.

    I read some of the fan comments on Facebook and some suggested they should have done more to keep KK. I think State quadrupled his salary so that is unrealistic.

    Roy could stay in the UNC system and get himself a job with less pressure...

    I'd say roy's players could go with him, but I'm not sure he thinks they're good enough for the Colonial conference ...

    Not a very long bus ride from chappaheeya to Wilmington...
    [redacted] them and the horses they rode in on.

    With UNC coming in at #100 in T-Rank, they'd have a comfortable but not insurmountable lead at the top of the Colonial. I'd give them decent odds to win the conference and secure that Auto-bid in the 13-14 range, but pesky away games at College of Charleston and William & Mary would await. Who knows - maybe William & Mary would avenge the loss of Justin Pierce as a grad transfer to UNC, and stun the Heels in the CAA tournament to earn their first ever trip to the Dance!

    If only promotion/relegation were a thing in college basketball, and we could actually see this scenario play out. Honestly, it would be nice for Carolina to get to compete against some teams at their own level this year. It's unfair for them to have to field a P5 team every year, you know.

    I was thinking the same thing. He loves the area. He has a home on the south end of Wrightsville Beach or he did when I retired with the Town almost nine years ago.

    This is the first coach fired this season, right? I could not find or think of another.

    That would be catastrophic for the student population: ol' roy providing the same "benefits" to all students as his players.
