"I'm truly excited to be joining the Seahawk family as a member of Coach Harris' inaugural staff, said Tingley. "UNCW has enjoyed unprecedented success the last two seasons and the pieces are in place to take this program to the next level. I am also thrilled for the opportunity to return and compete in the Colonial Athletic Association."
