NC State assistant makes in-state move
CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- North Carolina State assistant Larry Hunter was hired Friday as the new head coach at Western Carolina.
The 55-year-old Hunter joined Wolfpack coach Herb Sendek's staff in 2001 after 25 seasons as a head coach. He spent 12 seasons at Ohio University, compiling a 204-148 record before he was fired after the 2000-01 season.
Hunter replaces Steve Shurina, who was assigned to other duties within the university. The Catamounts were 48-97 the last five seasons under Shurina.
