Just three years removed from leading his team to the NCAA Tournament, Cy Alexander is out as North Carolina A&T’s basketball coach. Alexander has resigned from his post immediately, and will be replaced on an interim basis by assistant Jay Joyner.
A&T is 5-17 this season, and is currently on a nine-game losing streak.
“I have decided to step away from actively coaching to pursue other interest within athletics,” Alexander said in a release. “I look forward to pursuing those interest here at North Carolina A&T State University.”
Excited to return the favor and help Cy begin his career in broadcasting. He will be great! @HBCUGameday
