Coaching Carousel: UNC Asheville's Eddie Biedenbach Leaving for UNC Wilmington

The long time head coach of UNC Asheville will step down to become the associate head coach at UNC Wilmington.


Eddie Biedenbach has been a staple for UNC Asheville and Big South basketball, but today the seventeen year head coach has stepped down to become an associate head coach at UNC Wilmington according to a press release from the Seahawks athletic department.

Biedenbach will replace Jamie Kachmarik on Buzz Peterson's staff last month.

The 68 year old Biedenbach is a three time Big South Coach of the Year and took the Bulldogs to the NCAA tournament in 2003, 2011, and 2012. He currently owns a beach house at Wrightsville Beach, not too far from the UNCW campus.

Nicholas McDevitt is a strong in-house candidate for the job opening at UNC Asheville.
