When the 2016-2017 season ended for Old Dominion, the Lady Monarchs’ athletic department elected to not extend Karen Barefoot’s contract — which expires after next year.

With that being said, it looks like Barefoot has potentially found stability elsewhere. Multiple sources have informed Swish Appeal, that UNC Wilmington has offered their head coaching position to Barefoot. And rumor has it, that she is planning on accepting the position with the Seahawks.

UNC Wilmington also interviewed Syracuse’s associate head coach Vonn Read.

Stay tuned as this is fluid. More details to come.
