Why don’t the Seahawks have names on their jerseys?

The Seahawks‘ names aren’t on the back of their uniforms this season, because new men’s basketball coach Buzz Peterson is trying to create a team-first culture.

For years, players for the University of North Carolina Wilmington did not have their names on the back of their uniforms. When former men’s basketball coach Benny Moss was hired in April 2006, he changed that, saying that he felt college players deserved that recognition.

Buzz Peterson was hired last April and when the new uniforms were ordered for the 2010-11 season, he opted to go numbers-only on the back according to UNCW sports information director Joe Browning.
