Knew he was on the hot seat but makes no sense to hire him this late , unless it has something to do with the new AD coming in

I didn't see this at all. Offensive coach , and former transfer hmmm
Well this explains why Duer Sharp left so quickly
Duer Sharp’s resignation as SWAC Commissioner last week, just two days before the conference championship game, seemed to have come out of nowhere. But as HBCU Gameday first reported last week, it appears more complicated than that.
HBCU Gameday has obtained exclusive access to a memo sent from the NCAA to each President in the SWAC that outlines a misuse of money by the conference office. The funds in question are from the Student-Athlete Opportunity Fund (SAOF) and were mismanaged over the course of several years. Funds from the SAOF are distributed directly to conference offices from the NCAA and then distributed to the eligible student-athletes at each conference institution.
GREENSBORO — Femi Olujobi hit 13 of 15 shots from the field to post 29 points to go with nine rebounds and North Carolina A&T built a double-digit lead in the first half and made it stand up in a 92-73 win at The Citadel Wednesday night.
GREENSBORO – And the band played on.
N.C. A&T danced past Delaware State 44-3 Saturday, a homecoming victory that came before a crowd so large it’s not clear that everyone got in.
Those that did were packed onto the track surrounding the field. Those that didn’t just watched through the fence along Sullivan Street.
The game was just part of the festivities Saturday. Some got up early to watch the parade. Some waited around to watch the band afterward. But more than 25,000 people packed into and around Aggie Stadium to watch what just might be the best A&T football team in school history.
Now 6-0 for the first time since 1993, the Aggies put away Del State in a two-minute blitz in the first quarter, a remarkable sequence that showed just how good this team is and how good it can yet be.
It happened so fast, the visiting Hornets didn’t know what hit them.
“We’re chasing excellence,” he said. “We’re chasing greatness. It not about just winning. It’s not about just beating people. It’s about chasing excellence and being as good as we can be.”

A&T Football holds season's first practice
GREENSBORO — Footballs were flying around outside Aggie Stadium on a hot August afternoon. Coaches were screaming and players were sweating and Rod Broadway was smiling.
The old coach from Oakboro is in his element. He has his program where he wants it, and he’s not changing a thing.
“What’s the old saying?,” he asked, joking in front of the cameras. “We do chicken.”
No frills or fritters. A&T lost its best player but not its identity. This is a reloading season for the Aggies, and Broadway and his quarterback are looking to December.
“We’re going to be a good football team,” he said Tuesday, minutes before the first practice of the season, which starts in 28 days.
You don’t often hear coaches talk like that in August, but Broadway has seen times when he didn’t know if he was going to have a good football team or not, especially a month before playing the first game.
But the seventh-year head coach at North Carolina A&T has a simple reason for optimism.
“We have good players,” he said. “We have no excuses.”
Never one to duck from a challenge, he’s already lobbed one over his team’s head. Be good or else.
His quarterback is way ahead of him.
“We’re going to be great,” Lamar Raynard said.
Nothing much has changed at A&T, other than the best running back anyone from around here has ever seen is gone. Tarik Cohen, who ran for 5,619 yards and scored 59 touchdowns in the past four years is now in camp with the Chicago Bears.
“Tarik was a great player,” Broadway said. “I told people a couple years ago to sit back and watch and enjoy because you’re watching greatness.”
Now it’s North Carolina AT — After Tarik.
After 28 wins in three seasons, the Aggies are no longer looking back.
Cohen is gone, but the program remains strong if not stronger. A&T will be big, fast, talented and deep. The Aggies will be dangerous.
“We have more than we’ve ever had,” Broadway said.
And that’s the difference now that A&T is fully recovered from NCAA restrictions on scholarships and practice time. Broadway has a full roster and full staff for the first time. And if he can keep his quarterback healthy, it’s not clear that anyone in the MEAC can beat A&T, including nemesis N.C. Central.
Lamar Raynard, the returning quarterback, said the offseason has prepared the Aggies for what it now faces and the expectations of their coach.
“We all stayed here in the offseason and worked together,” he said.
That included all those seniors who have been waiting for this season to step out of the shadow of Cohen and Denzel Keyes and Marquis Ragland.
Raynard said he will take the leadership role this year.
“Lead my team,” he said when asked of his personal goal this year. “I’m going to be more vocal. The last couple of years I’ve been a little quiet, but this year I have to step up and lead my team.”
The Aggies were rolling right along last year with Raynard and the offense putting up remarkable numbers and winning seven straight games headed into the Central showdown. But a pectoral injury to Raynard changed everything, and the Aggies couldn’t finish what they started.
Still, a trip to the FCS playoffs rewarded A&T for its 9-2 regular season and might’ve given the team motivation for this year.
Broadway smiled when asked about it.
“When the smoke clears at the end, I know one thing,” Broadway said. “They hand out rings in December, and we want to be at the front of the line.”
Everyone’s talking about last year, and Broadway and his quarterback are talking about December. That’s how far things have come at A&T.
Everyone’s talking about Cohen, but Broadway and his quarterback are talking about Marquell Cartwright, the junior out of High Point.
“We’re going to have a great running game,” Raynard said.
“We go from all-world to all-conference,” Broadway said. “Don’t go to sleep on Cartwright.”...
Jordan Fieulleteau, a graduate transfer from the University of North Carolina, will finish his football career down the road at North Carolina Central.
Fieulleteau posted on his twitter page Friday morning “Excited to announce that I will be playing at North Carolina Central University next season for my final year of eligibility!”

nthony Grant is returning to the Atlantic 10 as the basketball coach at Dayton.
The school announced Thursday the hiring of Grant, who previously coached at Virginia Commonwealth and Alabama. He played in college at Dayton from 1983-87 and was part of two NCAA tournament teams during his career.
"I am honored and humbled to be the head coach at the University of Dayton," Grant said in a statement. "It's a great responsibility to take over at an institution that is so well-respected. Anyone you talk to in college basketball would say our program is a successful one, but the potential is here for so much more."
Grant has an overall coaching record of 193-110. He was 76-25 in three seasons at VCU with two NCAA tournament appearances before being hired at Alabama. With the Crimson Tide, he reached one NCAA tournament before being fired after his sixth season in 2015.
The hiring comes less than a week after Archie Miller left for the Indiana job.

RALEIGH, North Carolina (WTVD) -- Sources have told ESPN that N.C. State will hire UNC-Wilmington's Kevin Keatts as men's basketball coach, replacing Mark Gottfried who was fired after six seasons at N.C. State.
Keatts took over a UNC-Wilmington program that had gone eight seasons without a postseason appearance and quickly turned the Seahawks around, with three consecutive postseason appearances, including back-to-back NCAA tournament berths.
