Takayo Siddle has played for Kevin Keatts and worked on his staff at UNC-Wilmington. Siddle had been serving as the interim head coach in Wilmington, but now it appears he’ll be following his mentor to Raleigh, per Scout’s Evan Daniels.

Siddle has removed his name from consideration for the head coaching job at UNCW.

Siddle played for Keatts at Hargrave, and finished his career at Gardner-Webb. And here’s an extra note, if you wanna feel extra old today: Siddle finished his college hoops career in 2009. He started his coaching career at his alma-mater, then joined Keatts at UNCW when Keatts got that job.

I know some commenters have expressed concern regarding NC State’s elite all-name-team status, and this is a clear statement from Kevin Keatts that he’s heard you and he’s got your back. Also, an anagram for Takayo Siddle is Dadaist Yokel. I feel great about this hire already, even though it hasn’t happened yet.
