UNCW basketball set to hire Takayo Siddle as next coach

UNC-Wilmington’s men’s basketball program won its conference tournament two times in three years under Kevin Keatts.

The Seahawks will try to get back on top of the Colonial Athletic Association with Takayo Siddle, who has been Keatts’ top assistant at both UNCW and N.C. State.

UNCW is expected to hire Siddle, 33, on Friday, according to two sources with knowledge of the decision.

Siddle, who’s from Eden, played for Keatts at Hargrave Military School before his college career at Gardner-Webb (2005-09).

Siddle worked as an assistant at Gardner-Webb for four seasons before he joined Keatts at UNCW before the 2014-2015 season.

UNCW went 72-28 in Keatts’ three seasons and won a share of the CAA regular-season title in 2015 and then won both the regular-season and tournament titles in ‘16 and ‘17. Keatts was hired by N.C. State, before the 2017-18 season, and Siddle followed him to Raleigh.

UNCW replaced Keatts with former UNC assistant C.B. McGrath, who went 26-58 in two and half seasons before he was fired in January.

Siddle has helped Keatts and the Wolfpack reach the postseason in each of the past seasons (NCAA in ‘18 and NIT in ‘19) and it was in position for another NCAA tournament bid before the NCAA canceled the season due to coronavirus concerns on Thursday.

If this doesn't work out, it's time for Jimmy to go. The fact players are finding out on social media is a F'n travesty.

LMAO! Get a grip. I am blown away that news spreads on social media prior to anything being official for one...that never happens LOL!!! The kids are going to be ok and you conveniently left out Estime’s tweet in response telling him everything was going to be fine. Jeff Goodman and the writers across the country do this with every hiring/firing. If you read this board for 2 minutes, it’s easy to see your disdain for Bass, Siddle, Keatts etc., get over it!

News leaks are not Jimmy's fault. I assure you that was not his plan. But just like our politicians there are too many loose lips.

It's par for the course in today's sports media. It's not right but it's illogical to think he could tell all the players before it got out on twitter. Especially with them all being on spring break.

Not to mention the University’s Board hasn’t even had their meeting today yet. Pretty sure from what I see on the University website, it’s today at 4....but why worry about details like that!

Ahem. Until the BOT votes to hire him, he ain't hired. That meeting is at 4:00. Pretty much a rubber stamp but Bass can't put the cart before the horse by telling the players before the vote.

I didn't realize the meeting wasn't until 4 but this is how it usually goes. Goodman reported the C.B. hiring before the board meeting. Welcome the age of twitter.

You are full of $hit, I've ALWAYS given Bass the benefit of the doubt, he's done some solid things at UNCW. You must be confusing me with someone else.

As I mentioned to you yesterday, get into the name calling and describing what I am...perfect defense when you have no clue what you’re talking about i.e. you thinking UNCW released information to the press from their Board meeting that hasn’t even occurred yet prior to informing the kids. Can’t imagine why I’d think you may not support them lol.

You insinuated i've bashed Bass before which is just not true. Some here have, I have not. The information getting released early is unfortunate.

Let’s agree to disagree and move on! Disappointed for Burke but think it’s a great day for the Seahawks. Couldn’t have gone wrong either way. I do agree it’s very disappointing national media clowns race to get information out first with no thought towards the players.

one thing I think we can agree on is it better work out. If Jimmy misses two hires in a row in the most important sport there, that could be all she wrote.

Don’t disagree a bit. UNCW deserves a winning basketball program. That being said, I think taking our chances with a guy who was on one of the most successful staffs in program history and was the lead recruiter for a majority of those rosters is a good gamble.

Also it’s neither here nor there anymore, but I’m betting there’s A LOT of blame to go around for the CB McGrath debacle.

On to brighter days!!!

RE: UNCW basketball set to hire Takayo Siddle as next coach
Long time reader here, Seahawk alum and season ticket holder. I'm stuck in a house with my son and his friends who are already depressed about everything surrounding this damn virus, and now they are all just gut-punched by this. To do this to Rob Burke when he and the current players have to be quarantined? Does Bass realize a lot of the students despise everything to do with Keatts and NCSU? They love Burke. Bad timing. Bad execution. This might have been a makeup for not hiring him before, but that time has passed.
