ECU's Brandon Evans To Transfer

Last week East Carolina University announced that men's head basketball coach Mack McCarthy had agreed to a new five year contract to coach the Pirates taking the interim tag away and giving coach McCarthy full reign of the program. Now it seems coach McCarthy will lose at least one underclassman player from this years squad.

WITN has learned that sophomore guard Brandon Evans will transfer to another school. According to a source very close to the situtation, Evans is unhappy with his playing time.

Brandon Evans played in 26 games last year as a freshman averaging three and a half points and just over 13 minutes per game. This season his minutes dropped to 7.6 per game while averaging three points.

Sources also say Evans has no hard feeling against the current coaching staff and that the move is simply about a lack of playing time.

No word yet on where Evans plans to transfer.
