A source tells ABC 13 Sports that a report indicating Heritage High School product Kevin Keatts has accepted the head coaching job at UNC Wilmington is "99 percent accurate."
Keatts is currently the associate head coach at Louisville. The Cardinals play rival Kentucky in the Sweet 16 Friday night in Indianapolis. "It's been chaos [this week]," Keatts told our source during a text message conversation Wednesday night.
A call to Keatts was not answered.
The UNC Wilmington job would be Keatts' first Division One head coaching job. Earlier in his career, he was the head coach at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham.
