WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - "The rumors are false."
That was UNCW head women's basketball coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke's comment about internet reports Wednesday linking her with an associate head coaching position at the University of Southern California.
Her comments echoed those of UNCW athletics director Jimmy Bass who, on Tuesday, said Cooper wasn't leaving the nest. "There is no truth to any rumors that she is leaving and she is, and will remain, head coach of the women's program."
Bass also said he is in the process of finishing up Cooper-Dyke's annual review, which will then go to the Chancellor for approval.
In her two years as head coach, Cooper-Dyke has led the team to the program's first back-to-back 20 win seasons.
