|Three MEAC teams have contacted Bobby Collins about their openings.|
Bobby Collins holds the distinction of being one of only two men to win both a CIAA and MEAC Championship. The current Winston-Salem State University coach may get a chance to add to his MEAC total soon. The Winston-Salem Journal’s John Dell reports that Collins has been contacted by three MEAC programs about their vacancies.
Collins confirmed that MEAC members Maryland Eastern-Shore, Delaware State and Coppin State have contacted him.
“There’s been interest,” Collins said by telephone Friday night from the Final Four near Dallas. “I’m not going to get into particulars but there’s interest from me, as well. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens — so I really don’t want to say anything more.”
Collins cut his teeth as an assistant at Hampton before assuming the head coaching job in 2002. He compiled a 65-47 record there, including the 2006 MEAC Tournament Title. He resigned two days after his team lost in the NCAA Tournament, and came to WSSU shortly afterwards.
Collins led WSSU to the 2012 CIAA Tournament and three consecutive appearances in the NCAA Division II Tournament.
