D3 NEWS: Hamilton resigns as Head Basketball Coach at Randolph College

Randolph Director of Athletics, Tom Galbraith, announced Wednesday that head men’s basketball coach, Pete Hamilton, has informed him of his intent to step down from his position leading the WildCats at his alma mater.

Hamilton has led the WildCats for the past eight seasons and is just the second coach to lead the men’s program. He was a member of the inaugural men’s basketball team in the 2007-08 season as a first-year student-athlete and earned his bachelor’s degree from Randolph in 2011.

“Pete and I had a private conversation following the conclusion of the season where he outlined the reasons he felt it necessary to step away from his coaching position,” Galbraith said. “As someone I respect and know to be as committed as anyone to this program as a coach, former student-athlete, and alumnus of the school, I accepted his decision and will begin an immediate search for his successor.”

Hamilton summarized his affinity for Randolph and the men’s basketball program.

“I am grateful for the time I was able to spend as the leader of the program at Randolph. I will cherish the relationships that were built and will miss the day-to-day atmosphere of being in the gym and the team room with the student-athletes. Although it is time for me to move on from coaching, I look forward to continuing to support a program that has had such a large impact on my life since I was 18 years old. My family and I are excited to take on life’s next challenge.”
