Default 2017-18 Coaching carousel

Rick Pitino being replaced by David Padgett at Louisville is officially the first head coaching change of the 2017-18 season.

But there has now been another Division I head coaching change for 2017-18.

Eddie Payne, head coach at University of South Carolina Upstate (member of the Atlantic Sun Conference) for the past 15 years announced today (Oct. 3) that he would step down. He cited persistent pain and complications resulting from ankle surgeries that made it difficult for him to be on his feet to coach and conduct practices.

University officials are discussing a role that would keep Payne associated with USC-Upstate Athletics once he steps away from his duties as a coach.

Kyle Perry, who has worked as an assistant coach under Payne for the last eight years, will serve as the interim head coach.
