This afternoon, it was announced Gerard Coleman was officially transferring from Providence College due to “personal reasons”. He currently does not have a destination school set.
With Bilal Dixon officially gone as well, the scholarship limit is at the max again with the addition of Baker and the loss of Coleman.
Coleman has been a constant target for Friar fans to rail on this year, but I am sad to see him go, and think he could have done some great things the next two years. PC has been struggling with keeping guys on the team for quite some time, and I really thought he would have been a solid 4 year Friar, able to develop an important role on this team going forward even with he talented class coming in. That being said, if he was unwilling to buy into the system or adjust to a different role on the team, it may be best for both parties for him to part ways. I wish him the best luck wherever he lands.
I’ve also gotten word that Cooley will be meeting with Kiwi Gardner soon to figure out his situation. Stay tuned.
