UNC Asheville named long-time assistant Nick McDevitt as its new head basketball coach at a news conference today at Kimmel Arena.
McDevitt, 34, played for the Bulldogs from 1997-2001 and is an ’01 graduate. He had served as an assistant at Asheville under coach Eddie Biedenbach for the past 12 seasons, the last two as associate head coach.
Biedenbach, who posted a 256-258 record in 17 seasons at the school, resigned April 2 to become an assistant coach at UNC Wilmington. He won five Big South Conference titles, led the team to three NCAA tournaments and is the program’s all-time leader in wins.
