According to WECT-TV in Wilmington, former UNCW head coach Ann Hancock is headed to ECU. Here is the story courtesy of Bob Bonner and wect.com:
After her contract was not renewed at UNCW, Ann Hancock is set to join the Women's Basketball coaching staff at East Carolina where she will be an assistant to first year coach Heather Macy.
Sources with knowledge of the hire have confirmed Hancock's move to Greenville. ECU officials could not comment on the hire saying only that Macy is close to filing out her staff.
Hancock leaves UNCW after ten seasons as the head coach. Her teams went 2-6 against ECU over her career at UNCW.
In her final season the Seahawks compiled a record of 12-19 and a tenth place finish in CAA play (6-12).
The Elizabethtown native leaves UNCW with a 138-156 overall record and a 72-91 ledger in the CAA.
Hancock's best season came during the 2002-03 campaign when she was named the CAA Coach of the year after the Seahawks eclipsed the 20-win mark for the first time since joining the NCAA. UNCW finished with a 22-6 overall record and was ranked in the top-10 in scoring defense and defensive field goal percentage.
