Wolf joins UNCW staff

New UNC Wilmington basketball coach C.B. McGrath added a little more UNC flavor to this Seahawks program Thursday by hiring of Joe Wolf as an assistant coach.

Wolf is the second former Tar Heel to be hired to the UNCW staff. McGrath, himself a former UNC assistant, earlier added 2005 national champion Jackie Manuel to his staff.

“We’re very happy to have Joe join our staff,” said McGrath, who took over on April 3 after Kevin Keatts left for NC State. “His most important role will be to develop the big guys. Overall, he has a great basketball mind and rounds us out. He’s a perfect fit.”

Wolf, 52, spent 11 seasons playing in the NBA before starting his coaching career as an assistant at William & Mary in 2003.
