WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Jerry Wainwright couldn't stay off the sidelines any longer.

The former UNCW head coach is reuniting with Rodney Terry at Fresno State where Wainwright will be the lead assistant head coach.

"I missed the game." Wainwright said. "I'll help Rodney any way that I can. It's an exciting time for me."

This will be the second time Wainwright has coached under his former UNCW assistant. Wainwright was on the Fresno State bench in 2011-12 and will replace Michael Schwartz who left in April for a job at Tulsa.
