To sum it up maybe you could say he was a good man, he had good plan, but today he got canned and as all the long-term coaches know, that goes along with the territory……

GREENSBORO, March 13, 2012 – Jerry Eaves has been relieved of his duties as the head men’s basketball coach at North Carolina A&T, Director of Athletics Earl M. Hilton III announced today.

Scott Bollwage will serve as interim head coach until a permanent replacement is hired.

Eaves’ contract with the school expires May 30, 2013. Eaves finishes his tenure at A&T with a 99-180 record over nine seasons. He is third on the program’s all-time wins list. In 2003, Eaves took over a one-win program. During his stint, he led the Aggies to wins over SMU, DePaul, Middle Tennessee State and was 2-0 against cross-town rival UNC Greensboro.

    Hate to see it happen to Coach Eaves…His sons Frankie and Anthony are good young men and you hate to see it happen to their dad, but that is part of the business…..Good luck to Coach Eaves and his family wherever they may land next…..

    Andy is right. At end of the day its the W L record. That said Coach and Frankie and Ant are good friends and better people. All the best to them

    Trust when I say that Coach Eaves will be fine. Too many contacts to be out of coaching for long. He is a very good coach who came to A&T during the low point in the athletic programs history. Win loss record is unbalanced due to early years of rebuilding. Good luck to Jerry, Frankie and Anthony.
