Update: Moton has pulled his name from the running for the job, per WRAL.
Every spring in North Carolina you can count on two things: Pollen and LeVelle Moton’s name being put up in a coaching search.
North Carolina Central’s head basketball coach has reportedly interviewed for the open position at East Carolina, according to WRAL.The position is open after Jeff Lebo quit early last season shortly after a loss to North Carolina A&T.
Moton is coming off another MEAC championship in Durham, his third in the last five seasons and second in a row. His team finished 19-16 after losing all five starters from the previous year and won the MEAC Tournament as a no. 6 seed.
He is currently 164-97 all-time since taking over the reigns at his alma mater.
In previous years he’s met with Florida Atlantic University and Marshall in 2014, Iowa State in 2015, and was thought by many to be a viable candidate for NC State’s job opening last year.
He signed an extension with NCCU in 2014 that pays him $250,000 per year through 2022.
