NC Central's LeVelle Moton congratulated, but Butler's new coach is LaVall Jordan
LeVelle Moton is not the new Butler coach
If you are an assistant coach trying to land a job on a new coach's staff, you might want to make sure you are communicating with the right person.
After word got out Monday that Milwaukee coach Butler, many texts extending congratulations and inquiries about the status of the staff were sent. Problem is, many of them went to the wrong person -- North Carolina Central coach LeVelle Moton.
It's an easy mistake, really, since the two coaches have a first name that sounds the same. But props to Moton, who handled it all quite elegantly, even after hearing his name surprisingly (and mistakenly) surface as a favorite in the coaching search.
After leading North Carolina Central to three MEAC regular season championships and two NCAA Tournament appearances since 2014, Moton's stock as a coach has steadily risen. That could be why some people confused Moton, a North Carolina Central graduate with a 152-103 record as coach, with Jordan.
