Coach Wright states he will begin a new phase in his life. He will move up to the position of Advisor to the President of Villanova University.

 They went to battle and fought like a motorcycle gang on the floor, yet were Boy Scouts off the floor and did absolutely everything the right way. There was a pride to the program that didn’t need to be talked about or sold to anyone. You could see it, and you could feel it. It wasn’t talk, it was real.

Successor-in-waiting, Kyle Neptune, returns to Radnor to take the reins of the program. Neptune has 13 years experience in the Villanova system, 10 as Wright’s assistant coach. Neptune coached the A-10’s Fordham team last season…his 1st HC assignment. He raised the Rams from 2-12 in 2020-21 (Covid Season) to 16-16 this past season.
