Seton Hall coach Dwayne “Tiny” Morton announced Saturday night that he would be stepping down from his position as assistant coach to return to teaching according to reports.
“I’m a teacher and I’m going back to teach,” Morton told SNY.tv by text Saturday night. “If Lincoln [High School] accepts me back, I will be honored. This is in no way a basketball thing.”
Morton will be the second assistant to leave Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard’s staff since early 2014, when Oliver Antigua left to follow his brother Orlando to USF.
Willard has not made any public comments about Morton’s departure but is expected to address the situation later this week.
Morton’s son Trevonn Morton was on the Seton Hall roster as a walk-on. Although he didn’t see the court last year, his status should remain the same.
