Stunning news out of Christopher Newport University

OK, we're mystified by the latest bomb from Division III Christopher Newport University in Newport News. Coach Carolyn Hunter "resigned" on Friday.

"I wouldn't believe anything you hear" about Hunter's departure, CNU athletic director C.J. Woollum told the Daily Press. "Coach Hunter resigned. The speculation runs wild, but 99.9 (percent) is inaccurate. I wouldn't put any stock in any of the rumors you hear."

If you're wondering why the news is so shocking, remember it was Hunter who led the Captains to their first-ever Final Four last season and a 30-4 record. The year before that CNU was 30-4, advancing to the Sweet 16. Hunter was 265-103 in 13 seasons with the Captains.

And by the way, practice starts in six weeks. Senior associate athletic director Jon Waters is the interim coach.
