DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina Central has promoted assistant basketball coach LeVelle Moton to the head job.
The school on Wednesday gave one of its top players from the mid-1990s a five-year deal that will pay him $100,000 annually, effective April 1.
Moton joined former coach Henry Dickerson's staff two years ago. Before that, he coached three seasons at a high school in Raleigh.
Dickerson's contract was not renewed after five seasons.
Moton holds the school record with 213 3-pointers and is the third-leading scorer with 1,714 points from 1992-96, when the school was a member of the Division II Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
The Eagles are in the second year of their transition to Division I.
