Edward Joyner fired after fifteen seasons at Hampton

Edward Joyner is out after fifteen seasons as head men’s basketball coach at Hampton, the school announced on Monday. Joyner went 223-257 overall but just 17-48 in the last two years after joining the CAA in 2022.

“Coach Joyner is a good basketball coach and a tremendous person,” AD Anthony D. Henderson Sr. said. “Over the past 15 years, he has poured his heart and soul into the Hampton basketball program. Ultimately, we have not maintained the consistent level of success on the court that we expect. After a full review, we have decided to make a change in the basketball program’s leadership.”

Joyner thrived with the Pirates in the MEAC for many years, winning two regular season titles and going to three NCAA Tournaments, one NIT, two CITs and one CBI. The success launched the program into the Big South in 2018 and then the CAA in 2022, but the program has struggled since moving up in competition level.
