ESPN’s Jeff Goodman is reporting that Unversity of North Carolina-Wilmington coach Kevin Keatts has agreed to terms with North Carolina State University to become their next head coach.

Keatts, whose Seahawks were bounced from the 2017 NCAA Tournament yesterday by Virginia, was thought to be a potential candidate for the Indiana job. But North Carolina State moved quickly after the close of UNCW’s season to land their man.
Still, Keatts presumably would have been a fallback for Indiana, who is rumored to be interested in hiring bigger fish, such as Billy Donovan.
