Brad Brownell Keynote Speaker
Coach Brownell will be returning to Wilmington to be the Keynote Speaker at the annual Basketball Tip-Off dinner on 9/20. Should be a good event, once again for those able to attend.

Fantastic. Who could have foreseen this ever happening, say, 12 years ago? I'm so glad that the relationship between UNCW and Brownell has been restored to this degree.

That is very exciting to hear. I am glad amends could be made. Brad deserves a tremendous amount of respect and gratitude for his tenure here as both assistant and head coach.

I always sensed since he left that he really enjoyed his time here and still visits Wilmington occasionally. Since Depaulo and Cappicio are long gone I would think he would be happy to be the speaker at the event.

I haven't seen anything above that I disagree with. It will be nice to have him back at the Dub for albeit a short visit. I hope the university's arms will be wide open.

I agree fully. Its just that even after the DePaolo era it seemed Brownell was still a bit at arm's length, maybe unintentionally, and with neither side being "at fault" for that.

By scheduling the game @ Clemson and now this, its sort of an official way of making Brownell know he is still loved here and for Brownell to let UNCW know the feeling is mutual.

This is nothing short of fantastic, honestly.

This kind of mutual respect has been a long time coming. Kudos to the school, current AD, his staff, and team for getting this done.

Does anyone know what those dinner tickets usually go for?

I have heard from reputable sources that he is a terrible coach to the players. We need to set our sights higher for a speaker.

That was actually a rumor spread while he was here. Along with he was a racist.

Neither are anything close to true.

Glad to hear that Brad will be the Key Note speaker at the tip off event. Brad will always be a Seahawk to me. All of his hard work during his 12 years in Wilmington will never be forgotten. Unfortunately since I live in CA I won't be able to attend.
