DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Simply put, the 2016-17 season didn’t go as planned for the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats.
Out of the gate, the Wildcats were behind the eight-ball, as they were without star guard Jordan Potts, who didn’t play at all during the season. The Wildcats struggled to a 10-22 record overall, and a 10th-place finish in the MEAC standings.
Once the off-season hit, the changes began for the program. Back on March 21st, administration and Gravelle Craig agreed to let the head coach’s contract expire at the end of the month, ending Craig’s six-year tenure with the program.
Then, on Tuesday, another pair of dominoes fell in terms of the roster shakeup.
Sophomore Quinton Forrest and freshman Brandon Suggs both announced their intentions to transfer from the program, delivering a big blow to the Wildcats’ depth chart for the 2017-18 season in the process. Continue reading Forrest, Suggs to transfer from Bethune-Cookman
