Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

The big news yesterday was the end of the year long suspension of BU men's basketball coach Kevin Broadus.

The end came when the school opted to buy him out for over a million dollars.
But what does Broadus leave behind?

6 players on the roster were either coached by or recruited by Broadus, and many of them were asking for him to return as coach.

Instead interim coach Mark Macon returns for his second season, and Macon says that's all he can be concerned about.

"We all wish Coach Broadus well but here we're just pretty much focusing on basketball and I think that's something we have to continue to look at, this team and continue to improve. We just wish coach well."

2 players did decide to leave after last season, Dylan Talley and Pina Guillaume.

The biggest star on the team, all conference forward Greer Wright, flirted with the idea of transferring as well before deciding to return for his senior season.

The Bearcats open the year with an exhibition game at home on Novemeber 10th.
