WILMINGTON, N.C. -- North Carolina-Wilmington basketball coach Benny Moss has been reassigned within the athletic department.

Athletic director Kelly Mehrtens said Friday that assistant coach Brooks Lee will take over the program on an interim basis, starting with Saturday's home game against Towson.

Moss' attorney Jay Wesley Casteen said reports that the coach was fired were incorrect.

Moss was 41-74 in his fourth season at UNC-Wilmington, and went 23-45 in the Colonial Athletic Association. The Seahawks (7-14, 3-7) have lost six of seven and finished with losing records in two of Moss' three full seasons.
