The men’s basketball team at Miles College will take to the hardwood tonight in Jackson, TN to face Lane College at 7:30 p.m.. There will officially be a new head coach at the reigns for the Golden Bears when that happens.
The college announced earlier this week that fourth year head coach Christopher Giles had been released effective immediately. Giles had not coached the team since January 6, when he was suspended for “personnel issues.”
Interim Miles athletic director Dr. Chico Caldwell also announced that Birmingham, AL native Will Cotchery would continue serving as interim head coach until the end of the season and that a search for a permanent replacement would start at that time.
These are just some of the changes going on over there after the NCAA imposed sanctions through the 2013-2014 season late last year.
The Golden Bears’ next appearance at home in Fairfield will be next Thursday, February 11, against… Lane College.
The team is currently 3-16 for the season; two of those wins came during Giles suspension.
