Edward Waters College hires basketball coaches for men's and women's programs

Jacksonville, FL - Edward Waters College introduced its new men's and women's head basketball coaches on Thursday, with both coaches making a pledge to bring an exciting style of basketball back to the EWC campus.

Frank Burnell, formally the head coach at Daytona Beach Community College and a standout at Ribault High School 30 years ago, will take over as coach of the men's team. Charmaine Wilson, who was the top assistant coach at Bethune-Cookman University, will coach the women's team.  Burnell has been coaching men's college basketball for 25 years. While at DBCC, he led his team to four Mid-Florida conference championships, two tournament titles and a Florida Community College Activities Association state championship.

"We're going to work our tail off to try and bring in the best basketball players we can get and to bring an exciting brand of basketball back to EWC," Burnell said. Burnell is a four-year letterman and graduate of Stetson.
