Chattanooga hire Matt McCall wants to key on Will Wade's momentum

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- New Chattanooga coach Matt McCall says he wants to build on the momentum generated by Will Wade in his two seasons on the job.

McCall was introduced Monday as the replacement for Wade, who went 40-25 at Chattanooga before leaving last week for VCU.

McCall spent the last four seasons as an assistant on Billy Donovan's staff at Florida.

McCall said Wade's staff did a "tremendous job" with recruiting and developing Chattanooga's players. McCall added that "it's my job now to take that to another level, and we will be committed to that."

Wade succeeded at Chattanooga with an up-tempo approach he referred to as "chaos." The 33-year-old McCall said he also intended to use a fast-paced style.
