Coaching Carousel: Maryland Eastern Shore to Hire Bobby Collins

USA TODAY Sports

Maryland Eastern Shore is looking to change their bleak basketball history and will turn to a former MEAC coach to turn things around.

Maryland Eastern Shore will replace head coach Frankie Allen with former Winston-Salem State and Hampton head coach Bobby Collins.

Collins was 65-57 as the head coach at Hampton from 2003 to 2006 and then tried to transition Division II Winston-Salem State to Division I in 2007. Collins had just a 37-81 mark at the Division I level when the Rams reversed course back to the Division II ranks. Collins then had success leading the Rams to the NCAA Tournament and posted an 18-11 mark this past season in Winston-Salem.

Maryland Eastern Shore has never made the NCAA Tournament and the Hawks are currently in a stretch where they have never had a winning season spanning back over 35 years. The Hawks have not had a winning season in the MEAC since 2000-2001 when they went 10-8.

Collins will certainly have an uphill battle but does have plenty of experience in the MEAC.
