WKU BASKETBALL | Meet the new Coach and his monumental task

04/07/2016 07:08 PM

Rick Stansbury has hit the ground running. Since agreeing to become Western Kentucky’s New Men’s Head Basketball Coach a little over a week ago, the former Miss State Head Coach has been using every moment of the limited time he has, to try and re-stock and rebuild WKU’s roster.

The Hilltoppers have no Guards on their current roster, thanks to both graduation, and the dismissal of Fredrick Edmond, Chris McNeal and Marlon Hunter. The trio were originally suspended following a hearing before the WKU Disciplinary Committee, and then on Tuesday, officially released from their scholarship. The three have since left Western Kentucky.

So the Hilltoppers are minus several basketball players, but what they do have is a new, and very energetic, head coach. Athletic Director Todd Stewart explains why Stansbury is the coach who caught his eye.
