WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Benny Moss, an assistant coach at UNC Charlotte, was introduced Thursday as the new basketball coach at UNC Wilmington.

The 36-year-old Moss recently completed his sixth season as the top aide for Bobby Lutz with the 49ers, who compiled a 114-69 record during his stay.

"I want to continue to carry on the positive things that are associated with UNCW basketball, build on the tradition here and take the program to the next level," Moss said Thursday.

He succeeds Brad Brownell, who stepped down March 31 after running the Seahawks' basketball program for four years.
