Kennesaw State head coach Al Skinner stepping down

After four seasons at Kennesaw State, head basketball coach Al Skinner has announced that he will be stepping down from his position. The 66-year-old coach is just 40-81 at KSU, unable to reach the levels of success attained in previous jobs coaching at Rhode Island and Boston College.

Skinner will finish out the season, as the Owls still have three regular season games ahead of the Atlantic Sun Tournament in March. Per a release from the University on Thursday, a national search for Skinner’s replacement will begin immediately.

Who should the new coach be? One name that should be on the is Charlton Young, the former Georgia Southern head coach and current FSU assistant who has been recruiting the Florida/Georgia area for much of his career. Other potential candidates include Mississippi State assistant Korey McCray, who hails from Georgia and played at Mercer, as well as NC Central assistant Reggie Sharp, an Auburn-grad who has made several career stops nearby.
