UAPB fires women’s hoops coach

Halfway through the 2018-19 season the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff has fired head women’s basketball coach Nate Kilbert effective immediately. Kilbert had been head coach for six-plus seasons at UAPB.

Danny Evans has been elevated to interim head coach as UAPB plans to begin a search for a new leader of the Lady Lions at the end of the season.

UAPB STATEMENT ON WOMEN’S BASKETBALL PROGRAM

“We thank Coach Kilbert for his years of service to the University as head coach and wish him well in his future endeavors,” said UAPB Athletic Director Melvin Hines. “We felt a change was needed in our women’s basketball program, and decided to go in a different direction.”

Kilbert wasn’t hired by Hines who just took the job at UAPB this past September.
