Sean May To Join UNC Basketball Staff

Sean May

Sean May was a part of the championship team at UNC-CH in 2005 and it looks like his career with the school doesn’t just stop there.

UNC and May announced today that he will now be joining the coaching staff. May will serve as the assistant to the director of player development for the 2015-2016 season.

“Sean is one of the smartest players I have ever coached,” Roy Williams said in a statement. “He’s made the decision that his professional basketball playing career is over after 10 years, and he would like to see if coaching is the next step for him to pursue. The position he is in will allow him to help our staff and show him what our coaches do on a daily basis. We are pleased to have him back in Chapel Hill.”

“I’ve always been interested in coaching in college basketball so it makes perfect sense for me to get started along that path at the place it all began for me,” May says. “Over the last couple of summers I’ve talked with Coach Williams about pursuing coaching as my next career. After 10 years of playing professionally I felt this was the perfect time for me to start working on my next career. “Fortunately for me, Coach Williams is giving me the opportunity to do it at a place that means so much to me, which allows me to learn and develop under someone who taught me so much about the game of basketball. I’m excited to be coming home!” #Repost @uncbasketball with @repostapp. ・・・ North Carolina is adding former Tar Heels player and Final Four most outstanding player Sean May to its basketball staff as assistant to the director of player development.
