UNC Wilmington announced an agreement with North Carolina assistant C.B. McGrath on Monday to become its new men's basketball head coach.
ESPN's Jeff Goodman first reported the news on March 31, adding that it is pending board approval.
UNC Wilmington was searching for a new head coach after Kevin Keatts accepted the head job at NC State.
The 41-year-old McGrath spent 14 years at North Carolina under Roy Williams after serving as Williams' assistant for four years at Kansas.
McGrath also played four years with the Jayhawks at guard during Williams' tenure as head coach at Kansas.
He will join a UNC Wilmington team that is a combined 54-14 over the past two seasons.
The Seahawks have won the Colonial Athletic Association regular-season and tournament titles two years in a row and have reached the NCAA tournament in consecutive seasons.
