“I wish my alma mater Georgia Tech well in its search for a new coach,” Price said in a statement released over the weekend. “I am committed to the Charlotte 49ers men’s basketball program. I am excited and very encouraged by the progress that we made this past season.”
Price had interviewed for the job in 2011, which ultimately went to Brian Gregory. In his first season at Charlotte, the 49ers finished with a 14-19 record overall and 9-9 in Conference USA despite losing three starters to transfer. The previous season, Charlotte was 14-18 and 7-11. Four starters return next season, and three are freshmen.
