BURLINGTON, Vt. - UVM men's basketball head coach John Becker plans to return to coach the Catamounts next season.
Becker's name has circulated in various rumors for head coach vacancies around the country, but he cleared the air Thursday morning.
When asked where he will coach next season, Becker said, "Hopefully here. Hopefully here. I don't, I haven't taken any calls or been called, and my plan is to be here and I'm excited to push this program forward."
Vermont loses six seniors to graduation this season, a senior class who accounted for nearly 60% of the team's scoring in the 2017-18 season.
"We have a freshman class coming in, a lot of sophomores who didn't play a whole lot of minutes, so we need a lot of guys to step up," redshirt junior Ernie Duncan added.
"Freshmen need to come in ready to play and the sophomores that didn't play a lot last year need to step up and get ready to play, so it's going to be a collective effort from everybody to come in ready to play and pick up where the seniors left off."
