UMBC coach Randy Monroe out just two days before practice starts
Just a little more than 48 hours prior to Midnight Madness, we have our first coaching change of the 2012-13 campaign. UMBC coach Randy Monroe, who has been on the hot seat for a year or so, is out as the Retrievers' head man.
The coaching carousel has begun -- and Midnight Madness is still two days away.
Just two days before the official start of practice, we have a coaching change -- at UMBC. Randy Monroe is out as the Retrievers' coach.
Monroe had been at the helm at UMBC for the past eight years and led the program to its only America East title and NCAA tournament appearance in 2008. However, UMBC has struggled lately, winning just 13 games during the past three seasons.
“We appreciate all that Coach Monroe did for our basketball program and our community during his long tenure at UMBC,” athletic director Dr. Charles Brown said in a statement. “We wish him nothing but success in his future endeavors.”
Assistant coach Aki Thomas takes over as the interim coach for the season. Thomas joined the staff in 2007 after spending the previous three seasons on staff at Howard University.
