PC seeks basketball coach, URI shows interest in Jim Christian
Providence College has become the latest in a string of Rhode Island schools looking for new basketball coaches. PC women’s basketball coach Phil Seymore says he’s leaving the school to pursue other options. Seymore is at the end of his contract and has been at PC for seven years.
The announcement comes just weeks after Brown University and the University of Rhode Island both fired their men’s basketball coaches. The University of Rhode Island is reportedly considering Jim Christian of Texas Christian University for the post. Christian is a URI graduate, and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram credits him with helping bring the Rams to the Sweet 16 during his time as a student.
