Charlotte removes interim tag for coach Aaron Fearne

aaron fearne

Aaron Fearne has earned the full-time job as head men’s basketball coach at Charlotte, as the school removed the interim tag from his title Monday.

Fearne, from Australia, worked on Charlotte’s staff as an assistant coach from 2018-23. When Ron Sanchez left the 49ers’ head-coaching post to become associate head coach at Virginia last June, Fearne was given the role on an interim basis.

Charlotte has gone 15-8 this season and 9-2 in the American Athletic Conference in its first season in the league. The 49ers have won nine of their past 10 games, including a win over then-No. 17 Florida Atlantic.

“From the moment he took over the basketball program last summer, Aaron Fearne has demonstrated that he is the right man for this job,” Charlotte athletic director Mike Hill said in a statement. “In our first year in the AAC, he has our team competing for a league championship and has completely re-energized our fan base. The players believe in him and so do we.”

“It is an unbelievable honor to lead Charlotte Basketball,” Fearne said in a statement. “I am thankful to the players and staff for believing in me last summer and wanting me as their head coach and I am humbled that Mike, Chancellor Gaber, and the board of trustees believe in me as well.”
