MACON, GA -- Bob Hoffman has an open position on his staff.

Associate Head Coach Dog Esleeck accepted a position on C.B. McGrath's staff at UNC Wilmington after six season with the Bears.

Esleeck was promoted from assistant to Associate Head Coach following the 2013-14 season. Esleeck joins a UNC Wilmington program coming off back to back NCAA Tournament appearances.

After three seasons with the Seahawks, Kevin Keates accepted the head coaching vacancy at NC State.

Mercer looks to bounce back from a 15-17 season which saw the Bears exit the first-round of the SoCon Tournament after a loss to ETSU.
