WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) UNC Wilmington hired North Carolina State assistant coach Takayo Siddle as basketball coach Friday.
Siddle replaces C.B. McGrath, who was fired in January after compiling a 26-58 record midway through his third season. Assistant Rob Burke served as interim coach after McGrath's ouster.
Siddle returns to a program where he spent three years as an assistant to Kevin Keatts, including serving as interim coach for the program when Keatts left to take over at N.C. State in March 2017.
