UNC-Asheville head coach Eddie Biedenbach will leave the position that he has help for 17 seasons in order to become an assistant coach at UNC-Wilmington, the school announced Tuesday.
Biedenbach is the all-time winningest coach in Big South history and won four regular-season conference championships and three appearances in the NCAA tournament. He brought his team to back-to-back tournaments in 2011 and 2012.
“I was looking for someone with head coaching experience and Eddie’s track record speaks for itself,” UNCW head coach Buzz Peterson said in a statement. “He’s taken UNCA to the NCAA Tournament and established a very successful program there. Eddie will bring a wealth of knowledge to our program.”
The hire leaves one more open spot on the UNCW staff after both Jamie Kachmarik and Dante Calabria were relieved of their duties following the season. According to the release, Biedenbach will begin work later this month.
