WRAL has confirmed that former North Carolina Central University guard LeVelle Moton will be named the Eagles new head basketball coach.

For the past two seasons, Moton has served as an assistant coach for the Eagles.

A press conference will take place on Wednesday at 3:30 in the Emma Boswell Marable Executive Conference Room of the William Jones Building on the campus of NCCU.

Moton is a 1996 graduate of NCCU with a bachelor's degree in recreation administration. He left his mark on the court as the school's third all-time leading scorer with 1,714 points from 1992-96.

Moton, a 1992 graduate of Enloe High School in Raleigh, was league player of the year as a senior.

Prior to being an assistant coach at NCCU, Moton was the head boys basketball coach at Sanderson High School in Raleigh. During his three-year tenure (2004-07) at Sanderson, Moton led the Spartans to an overall record of 59-25, while winning back-to-back Cap-7 tournament championships in 2006 and 2007.

For the past two seasons, NCCU has transitioned into Division I basketball, struggling to an 8-53 record. The school is in the process of joining the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Moton will replace Henry Dickerson, whose contract was not renewed.

    Am I the only one that thought "Second!" when I read the article title?

    Wow. I feel old. Head basketball coaches are older men. But I grew up in the same neighborhood as LeVelle and went to Enloe and graduated with him in 1992. Now that kid that used to school everyone in the neighborhood (on the court) is a head basketball coach. Way to go LeVelle, I wish you the best!

    This is great for Coach Moton. He is a motivating force in the lives of young men and he will make an excellent head coach at his alma mater
