After nearly a decade at the helm of Florida Gulf Coast University, president Dr. Wilson Bradshaw is stepping down at the end of June.

March Madness is coming back to Tampa, as the Amalie Arena has been selected as a host site for first and second round games in the 2020 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship.

In addition, the Bay area will welcome 11 Division II championship events in 2020 and 2021. 

The University of South Florida men's basketball program is under NCAA investigation for possible academic fraud issues.

Florida Gulf Coast University is starting a search for a new men’s basketball coach. FGCU coach Andy Enfield was hired by the University of Southern California in Los Angeles to be its new coach. Enfield led the young Eagles team to a record-breaking two wins in the NCAA tournament as a number 16 seed last month.

FGCU Athletics director Ken Kavanagh said in a press conference today he was grateful for everything Enfield has done for the school.
