UNC Asheville Athletics is hosting farewell receptions for longtime Head Men's Basketball coach Eddie Biedenbach this week on campus.


Coach Biedenbach served as the Bulldogs head coach for 17 years and finished his career as the school’s and Big South’s all-time winningest coach.


The first reception will be on Wednesday (April 10) at Pinnacle of Highsmith from 2:30-4 p.m. This is open to students, faculty and staff who all want to wish Coach Biedenbach good luck in his new position at UNC Wilmington.


A reception for community members will be held on Sunday (April 14) at Laurel Forum in Karpen Hall from 1:30-3 p.m. There will be light refreshments at both events.


There will be another event for Coach Biedenbach in late summer that will be announced at a later date.
