Easley Leaving UNCG

Assistant coach Kevin Easley has left UNCG to take a similar position with High Point University, according to the High Point Athletics website. There has been no official announcement from UNCG.

My thoughts on this are simple. UNCG has got to start funding it's basketball program in a way that keeps good coaches from leaving to take similar jobs at schools from mid and low level conferences. The UNCG administration has started to take steps to improve the program by moving it to the Greensboro Coliseum and playing a much tougher schedule. Now it's time to put money in place to keep quality coaches and assistant coaches. However, I wish Mr. Easley good luck in his future coaching endeavours.

The discussions on the UNCG forum can be found here and here.
